Everything You Need To Know For 17 May Reopening
As we head towards the next step on the Government roadmap out of Lockdown, further areas of the Club will be reopening. Read on to find out everything you need to know from 17th May!
Alongside our indoor gym areas, outdoor dining at The Airedale, The Hogarth Medispa, swimming pool facilities and outdoor exercise spaces - indoor classes and indoor dining at The Airedale will be returning from 17th May in accordance with Government guidelines.
INDOOR CLASSES ARE BACK
We are delighted to be able to bring back indoor classes from Monday 17th May – alongside our outdoor classes for total safety and space - you can enjoy your favourite class whatever the weather!
£25 ZOOM ACCESS ONLY - ENDS 1 JUNE
Live streamed classes on Zoom will continue until 1 June 2021 for frozen members, but will only be available for full paying members thereafter. We started Hogarth Online live classes over Lockdown 1.0 and offered these free for all to support as many as we could. We then offered just a £25 fee (to support our instructors) for online only access to support those most vulnerable and nervous to come back as the Club. We’ve had tremendous feedback that our live classes have been a n invaluable way of keeping up fitness when unable to come to the club. We aren't able to maintain Zoom membership only as we make a loss in providing them.
Do contact our Membership Team if you would like to return to indoor (or outdoor!) classes by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
EXTENSIVE CLEANING PROTOCOLS
• To thoroughly clean each studio between classes, we have made them a little shorter... but sweeter! To keep our members and instructors safe. At least 15 - 30 minutes has been allowed between each class for ample cleaning time and to reduce crowding.
• Our UV Light cleaning robot Helios continues to sanitise each area of the Club nightly to completely cleanse all surfaces. You usually find units like HELIOS in hospitals and medical facilities that require extreme deep cleaning and sanitisation. Watch him in action here!
• Foot pedal hand sanitiser pumps and cleaning products are dotted all around each studio as well as the Club for total peace of mind.
BRING YOUR OWN YOGA & PILATES EQUIPMENT
For hygiene reasons, Yoga mats and Pilates blocks will not be provided from 17th May. So please do bring your own to your Yoga or Pilates class if you wish to use one.
Only plastic-coated weights can be provided and used in certain Studio 1 and Studio 2 classes. These should be collected on entry and left on the floor area in front of the rack for our cleaners to sanitise and re-rack. This is the best protocol to stick to for total safety control.
Body Pump classes will continue to be pre-set up by our team and left for our cleaners to sanitise and put away.
SOME OUTDOOR CLASSES CONTINUE
To maximise capacity and safety, we have kept Group Cycle under the outdoor tent for now. Some of our HiiT and Body Conditioning classes also remain outdoors for safety and capacity reasons. In the event of poor weather, outdoor classes on the tennis courts will move indoors to one of the Studios. However, numbers will be limited for safety, so those who have pre-booked hold priority to attend. Please do continue to book your Class at the Club in advance!
We’re delighted to have Alison back at the Club and on our timetable for her ever-popular Stretchworks and Danceworks classes. We are also super excited to have our Holistic teachers finally back teaching at the Club!

MAY REOPENING FAQS
No problem! Just send an email to email@example.com to let them know that you would like to un-freeze from now to be able to book your class, changing room, swimming pool or spa pool slot from when bookings reopen on the 9th May for when you come in from 17th May. They will start your Club membership from then.
Great! Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to re-start your membership from now. You can then instantly book and use the facilities. We very much look forward to welcoming you back.
Although Government guidelines state that Steam rooms and Saunas can reopen from the 17th May, we will continue to keep them temporarily closed until there is more scientific evidence to support that they are safe to reopen and we are able to operate COVID safe with these facilities. We are continuously thinking of ways to safely reopen the saunas and will keep you updated in due course.
Due to the lack of ventilation in our squash court and the very limited safety guidelines, we will continue to keep our Squash court temporarily closed. We are hoping to open up our Squash court for single Drills only soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding in keeping each other safe.
