Our Guide To Safer Sweating

Since we've been given the government go ahead to re-open on Sat 25th July, we've been busy prepping behind the scenes to ensure that when we open it's as safe for everyone as possible.

You chose Gro to keep you fit and healthy, and we’re not planning on letting you down now. While we’ve been closed, we’ve been closely monitoring government & WHO guidelines and have implemented as much as we can across all three floors.

Keeping our members & staff safe is our number priority, we have raised the bar on our own high standards on cleanliness and will continue to do so.

Inside each training space will be the designated equipment for each member. There will be no sharing of equipment. Please help us by sanitising your equipment at the end of each class.

Personal Training

1. Arriving & Timing

Please arrive just before your scheduled session. Unfortunately we cannot allow for waiting in our reception.

Each session will now last 50 Minutes, this will allow your trainer to sanitise each piece of equipment in between each session.

New Studio Rules

Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of covid 19, if you are unsure of the symptoms you can double check here

2. Arriving for class

Please arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before any class. If you wish to pre order a post workout shake or superfood smoothie please allow time for this too.

We have allocated standing spots outside the gym, please use these until the instructor comes down to collect you. This is to ensure we always have a one way system in place and no overcrowding on the stairs.

3. Pre booking and late arrivals

Please make sure you are booked in via our app or website and have a space, as we only can allow up to 7 members per class.

We know life can get in the way sometimes but please try to be on time (5 minutes early) to class as for reasons above.

At the moment we are advising that all members turn up in their kit ready to rumble! This is to avoid congestion outside of our changing room.

Our toilet is available for use just not the shower!

Please bring a sweat towel & a full bottle of water.
