We will put the restriction to indoor fitness classes, including its self-funded health and wellbeing programme which supports people living with long-term conditions, adult swimming lessons and indoor sports such as racquet sports, unless both players are from the same household, into effect on Friday, November 13. The measure will be in place until Scottish Government advice states that it is appropriate for adult indoor group exercise and sports to resume.
Customers will still be able to enjoy our gyms, swimming pools and outdoor pitches. Activities designed for under 18s, including swimming lessons, will also be unaffected.
Emma Walker, chief executive for Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “We are acting in line with the Scottish Government’s COVID local protection measures, and, following the confirmation that Fife is now in Level 3, we will no longer be able to offer our fitness class and health and wellbeing programmes and organised indoor sports for adults.
“The health and safety of our customers and staff is our number one priority, and we understand that customers, who have been enjoying our fitness programme and sports hall activities since we re-opened our facilities across the region, will be disappointed. However, as we have extremely good health and safety and social distancing measures in place, we are in a good position to resume our programme as quickly as possible when permitted.”
Fitness class and health and wellbeing participants, as well as Leisure Active members and those with sports hall bookings, will be notified of the change to our service.

How do I book a gym session?
All sessions should be booked online or via the FastTrack booking system. All sessions can be booked online, please ensure you register with our online booking system.
How long before my session should I arrive?
Please arrive 'Gym ready' no more than 5 minutes prior to the start of your gym session.
How long is a gym session?
Gym sessions are limited to a maximum of 55-minutes. Due to the restricted numbers allowed in the gym at any one time, we want to make sure that we give all our customers the opportunity to stay active and feel great, so, we have limited each gym session to 55 minutes.
How do I know the equipment is clean?
Staff are on hand to clean the equipment throughout the day, and we also expect customers to clean their own equipment before and after each use. Staff have received additional training in response to the Covid-19 health and safety requirements and will be regularly cleaning all gym equipment throughout the day to ensure our customers enjoy a safe visit. In addition, all customers will be asked to clean equipment before and after use. Cleaning stations will be clearly marked within the gym.
Are there time limits for the use of equipment?
Yes. We ask that you limit your time on any one piece of equipment to 20 minutes. This will allow everyone the opportunity to use the equipment. If the gym is quieter, this can be extended, but if people are waiting please keep to the 20 minutes as suggested. We want to give all customers the opportunity to use the equipment that is available for use. To do this, we ask that at busy times, you limit your use of each piece of equipment to 20 minutes. We thank you in advance for your support.
Can I shower after my Gym visit?
Unfortunately, the shower areas will not be unavailable, we ask that customers please shower at home.
Can I request to use a specific piece of equipment that is not in use?
While we would like to rotate equipment in and out of use due to the 2-metre rule, this is not reasonably practical for us to achieve across all our gyms so we have listed what will be available for you to use and our staff can offer an alternative exercise to work the area/muscle you want to target. To ensure all our customers can get active safely we have identified a wide range of gym equipment that can be used during this time. Our website will clearly show what equipment is available in each venue and all equipment within our centres has been clearly labelled. Our gym staff will be on hand to offer you any support and guidance you need while we work with these new procedures.
Why is there a 30-minute gap between group fitness classes?
We take the health and safety of our customers seriously. The time gap between classes allows our staff to thoroughly clean the area to ensure you enjoy a safe experience within our centres.
Why are the group fitness classes being held in the sports hall and not the group fitness studio?
We want to ensure the safety of our group fitness customers. To allow us to adhere to the 2-metre social distancing rule, we have used our sports hall to give customers a large, safe space within which to enjoy their class. Why are some classes I used to attend, not on the timetable? We hope you will enjoy the variety of sessions our instructors will deliver for you. To ensure the safety of our customers and to adhere strictly to social distancing restrictions, some sessions cannot be delivered at present. We look forward to being able to extend our group fitness programme when restrictions allow.
How will you ensure that the centre is a safe environment for me to enjoy my group fitness class?
The health and safety of our customers are of the utmost importance to us. Following industry guidelines, enhanced cleaning measures have been put in place, and specific exercise work stations have been defined within sports halls, to ensure you can exercise safely following 2-metre social distancing.
Why are all classes a maximum of 45-minutes?
To ensure the enjoyment and safety of all our group fitness participants, all sessions will be a maximum of 45-minutes to allow us to clean workstations between classes.
