Safety Measures & Centre Guidelines

Booking Classes & Gym Sessions

New Guidance Clarification for Centre Users:

Group Fitness Classes

Sessions will continue as normal under our Covid-secure measures. Under the latest guidance, organised indoor exercise classes for adults are still allowed in groups larger than six provided that individuals are social distanced and safety measures are in place. However, you must not arrive or mingle in a social group (ie. with friends or family) larger than six.

Therefore, classes will continue to run as usual and users are asked to please follow our safety measures found here: https://www.ymcaplymouth.org.uk/safe/

At peak times you may have to queue outside the facility in order to social distance. Therefore, we ask you to please arrive at the time of your session. Given our lovely British weather, we recommend that you bring your brolly in case of rain. We will be making check-in as quick as possible, but we do apologise for any wait. Once inside and working hard, we guarantee you’ll soon warm up!


There are no changes to the measures around the gym. All users are required to observe social distancing and follow our measures such as cleaning equipment after use and booking online and arriving at the time of their session.

Once again, we apologise for any queuing at peak times, we will do our best to minimise this as much as possible. Be sure to check the weather and bring an umbrella just in case.

Sports Activities

Team Sports for over 18s will no longer be able to take place for groups more than six. Only organised sport for certain sports subject to governing body guidelines may be able to take place provided that groups do not mix. Supervised sport for under 18s can still go ahead.

For details around Sport and facility bookings, please contact our Centre Manager, Stacey Ferris on 01752 201918 or email stacey.f@ymcaplymouth.org.uk.

Test & Trace

All gym & class users are required to provide contact details when booking or joining as a member, we simply ask you to check-in as usual when you visit the centre with your membership card our via the MemberMe+ app on your phone.

If you are entering the facility as part of a group for a sport activity, the lead person of your group must leave their details and check-in with reception.

Alternatively, users can also scan the available NHS Test & Trace QR codes available around the facility with the NHS Test & Trace mobile App.
