Our Commitment to Health & Safety

For every visit to Aquafit you are required to:

  • Each Member must swipe their card on arrival
  • Separate gym entry and exit points to avoid unnecessary congestion

For your safety and that of our team, all staff have completed COVID-19 approved training and COVID Marshalls will be on hand to ensure a safe experience for all.
