Following the Victorian Government’s latest directive to slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), all Victorian Fitness First clubs will be temporarily closed, effective close of business Wednesday, July 8.
The latest updates from the Victorian Government suggest gyms will reopen in line with a move to Stage 3 restrictions, provided a range of key thresholds are met. The date of 26 October has been mentioned, but as noted, this is heavily contingent on meeting key thresholds.
Stay motivated and healthy, look after yourself and one another. We will see you in club soon!
Memberships have been placed on a complimentary freeze until we are able to welcome you back into our clubs. You do not need to take any action, we have automatically made this change.
Review the FAQs below for more detailed information about what the temporary closure means for your gym membership.
While we can’t wait to welcome you back, the health and safety of our members, staff, and the wider community remains our primary focus.
During the shutdown and subsequent phased re-opening in several states, we have implemented a range of new health and safety measures across all clubs in our network. When our Victoria gyms reopen, you will see a range of newly implemented measures including:
Education programs including all staff undertaking Australian Government training modules on COVID-19
Cash-free purchases at reception
Social distancing including floor markings
New Group Exercise class procedures
We have also implemented a range of guidelines for members, including stay at home if you are feeling unwell; no towel = no train; wipe down equipment before and after use with the provided antibacterial wipes; always swipe in so that attendance records are accurate.
