Is it safe to come to the gym

 We understand that many people are concerned about the risk of contracting Covid-19 at the current time and at Forefront Fitness we have taken precautions to ensure your safety. All equipment has been spaced out as much as possible and is cleaned after use by our members. Our staff are also cleaning throughout the day and we are fogging the gym on a regular basis to further clean and disinfect all areas.

The latest evidence suggests that catching COVID-19 in a gym environment is low.

Need a bit of company?

Going to the gym is about so much more than a bit of a sweat.  We are all under huge pressure just now – lockdowns, masks, job insecurity and a lack of social events.  Many of our usual coping mechanisms just don’t exist at the moment.  

Difficult as it is, we have to find ways of dealing with what is happening and one great way is getting to the gym.  Quite apart from the well researched knowledge that working out is great for your mental health – coming to the gym is somewhere to meet people and to chat.

Right now we are likely to be very isolated and its quite possible to go for several days with only a muffled few words passing your lips.  The gym is a great place to chat while you work out and compare COVID stories (or not talk about the wretched pandemic at all – which is a relief in itself!) 

At Forefront Fitness there is always a member of staff on duty and we are only too happy to pass the time of day with you.  Even if you don’t feel up to doing much in the way of talking (or working out for that matter) – just come on in.  Getting out of the house is a bonus, getting in a few steps has got to be good and if you lift a few weights – well, you’re on a winner.  

Drag yourself away from your desk, the TV, the kids and drop into the gym.  We can almost guarantee you will feel a bit better when you leave!
