Gym and leisure facilities in the UK still need to follow strict Government guidance in order to remain open, ensuring social distancing among staff and customers, proper ventilation throughout, and comprehensive cleanliness protocols.

Mark Braithwaite, 1Life’s CEO said: “The sector worked closely with the Government to develop the guidance for reopening our centres safely.

"Feedback from local people who have been using the facilities has been fantastic and we’d like to thank our customers for their support and patience and understanding whilst getting used to a new way of using their local services. Regular exercise has been shown to improve a person’s ability to regulate the immune system, which is essential for avoiding the severe symptoms of COVID-19, now and as we move into the colder, winter months where we will also see a rise in other illnesses such as colds and flu.”
