Between May 15th and May 26th works took place to remove and install new entrance gates at reception and also to replace and refresh over 60 pieces of gym equipment.
New entrance gates were installed to replace faulty and defective barriers before them. We hope that these new entry gates will assist in managing member access to the centre and also to help minimise queues and problems at reception. If you are having difficulties with your membership card or centre access, we ask that you speak with a member of the reception team who will be happy to assist you. For annual and monthly paying members, we ask you to check in using our fast track kiosks or by visiting reception before scanning the barcode side of your card under the scanner situated to the right hand side of each entry gate. For pay and play members, we ask that you see a customer service advisor at reception who can help you check in before you scan your card’s barcode in the entry gates.
