HEALTH COMMITMENT STATEMENT

 

For staffed gyms.

We are dedicated to helping you take every opportunity to enjoy the equipment and facilities that we offer. With this in mind, we have carefully considered what we can reasonably expect of each other.

Relating to COVID-19 when meeting face to face
COVID-19 is highly contagious (it spreads easily). Your health and the health of other gym users is your responsibility.

Our commitment to you

1. We will take all the relevant government-recommended precautions published online at www.HSE.ie. These precautions are aimed at reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19.
2. We will carry out a risk assessment and take reasonable steps to both manage social distancing and provide effective
infection prevention.
3. We will provide you with information about any changes we put in place, including any rules that we ask you to follow.

Your commitment to us and other gym users

1. Do not enter the gym if you or anyone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms, or if you should be self-isolating as per the government guidelines.
2. By entering the gym, you accept that even though we have taken the appropriate precautions, you are still at risk of
getting COVID-19. Familiarise yourself with the government guidelines published online at www.HSE.ie about
protecting yourself and others from COVID-19, and follow them.
3. Familiarise yourself with the changes we have made and any rules we ask you to follow, and follow them.

Relating to exercise

Our commitment to you

out. However, we ask you not to exercise beyond what you consider to be your own abilities.
2. We will take reasonable steps to make sure that our equipment and facilities are clean and safe for you to use and
enjoy for the normal purpose they were intended for. Bear in mind that we are not able to clean or inspect equipment
and facilities after each use.

and facilities, we will consider which adjustments, if any, are reasonable for us to make.
