WHAT WE’RE DOING TO KEEP YOU SAFE
Barbells are back! We cannot wait to see each and every one of you in our clubs. However, there are a few changes that we have to make in order for us to create a safe and fair space for all of you, while adhering to tighter restrictions on gyms this time round.
So What’s Changing?
Reopening Date | 6am, 9th November
Member Access | M-F 6am to 9pm, S&S 8am to 4pm
Staffed Hours | As above, we are required to be staffed at all times*
Maximum Capacity Per Club | 20 members*
Club Usage Bookings | Bookings Strongly Encouraged
* indicates a new restriction imposed by DHHS for the operations of indoor physical recreation facilities.
These changes are only temporary and will be in place for as long as the current level of restriction remains. These restrictions are in place across the whole of Victoria for all indoor physical recreation facilities. And we believe that this will provide a fair balance of accessibility to all members, like yourself. Click the link to view the current restrictions – DHHS Industry Restrictions Roadmap
Fingers-crossed, this will only be for the short term!
