Our online booking system for services will be available later this week. When it is ready, you can choose the program and time you wish to attend using the links below, as well as make a payment to secure your place. You can also book and pay over the phone. Please be aware you must have a confirmed booking before visiting our centre.

If you are unable to attend a booked session, you can cancel your session through your booking confirmation email, or alternatively by calling us. With limited numbers of people able to access the facility at any one time, it is really important that you let us know if you can’t make it so the booking can be accessed by someone else.

In order to provide more opportunities for our community to be active and access the centre, visits to the gym are capped at 50 minutes and group fitness classes are capped at 45 minutes. Please arrive no earlier than five minutes before your appointment time. If there is a need to queue, we ask you please adhere to the 1.5m social distancing rules and leave the centre promptly after your session.

Please ensure you bring with you a sweat towel and a refillable drink bottle. If you do not have a towel, you will be not be allowed to enter the centre. 

Memberships will remain on hold at this time. Members will be able to access the programs and services at a reduced rate. An email will also be sent to members in the coming days with more details.

We look forward to seeing you back in the gym soon.

Since the Victorian Government announced the easing of restrictions, our staff have been working around the clock to ensure we have all of the measures in place to keep you and the community safe when we reopen. 
 
Although the government has announced that certain programs and services can reopen, it does not mean they will reopen at our centre straight away. We are working with our council partners to ensure we consider the safety of our staff and the community, equity of access for our members and the commercial viability before we reopen. 
 
We are excited to announce the below are the services will be reopening on Monday 29 June: (Booking system coming soon)

  • Gym access 
  • Group fitness classes

All other programs and services that are not listed above will remain closed at this point in time. 
 
To ensure your safety and the safety of our staff, we are implementing a number of changes to make your return to our centre is as smooth as possible. Please read the below safety measures prior to attending the centre.

  • Staff Training

    All staff have completed the Department of Health COVID-safe training, as well as additional training provided by YMCA Victoria to ensure they are equipped with the knowledge to keep you safe. We have also provided additional training for specific roles to ensure all programs operate safely with social distancing requirements in place.

  • Booking online

    To ensure we are following the government’s health guidelines, there will be a restricted number of people allowed within a space at any given time. So no one misses out, we will be setting up an online booking system where you can select a session time that suits you and pay immediately to secure your place. (Bookings system coming soon)
     
    At this time, membership payments will not resume. You can also book and pay over the phone by calling our centre on 5952 2811.

  • Temperature scanning on entry
    Please make sure you arrive 10 minutes early to your session so you have enough time to sign in and get your temperature checked. All staff and visitors will be scanned upon entry and anyone who displays a temperature of 38°C will be politely asked to leave.
  • Signage and instructions

    Once you are inside the centre, you will see signage and instructions on how staff and visitors can be COVID-safe. Hygiene signage and floor, seat and bench stickers will be displayed throughout the facility to help everyone with physical distancing requirements.

  • Social distancing in centre
    A safe distance of 1.5 metres between people will be required throughout the centre and programs. All spaces within the centre have been measured and 4 metres squared restrictions per space will be enforced. Staff and visitors will be counted as they enter and exit spaces, and some seats and equipment have been removed to ensure social distancing is possible.

    Please remember that we must all play our part in helping stop the spread of COVID-19. If a visitor does not follow our COVID-safe practices, including social distancing requirements, they may politely be asked to leave the facility by a staff member. 
  • Hygiene and cleaning
    When you arrive at the facility, the first thing you will notice is hand sanitiser at all entry and exit points, with the expectation that everyone (staff and visitors) sanitise their hands before entering. Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the centre and in bathrooms.  

    The entire facility will be cleaned every 24 hours and high touch points, such as doors, toilets and gym equipment, will be cleaned regularly throughout the day. Staff will also be wiping down gym equipment regularly and antibacterial wipes will be available for visitors to use before and after using equipment.
  • Our 8-step plan for a confirmed case
    Our staff have been trained to ensure that if there is a confirmed case at the centre, they have the tools and resources they need to close down safely. All visitors will have to sign in at reception when they attend their session, which allows us to contact trace those people who were at the centre. There will also be a contamination clean prior to reopening.  

    Please do not visit the centre if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, tiredness, cold, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath or headache. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please seek medical attention and be checked for COVID-19 at one of the testing stations across the state.
