We strive to provide a nice, clean workout environment for you to enjoy, and with your help we can keep up our standards for all members!
We would like you to keep in mind few basic rules of every health & fitness club around the world which makes life easier for everyone:
1. Always put your weights back
This should go without saying but it’s the number one rule broken in the gym. You should never leave your weights on the ground. It’s rude as well as dangerous. If you can pick it up, you should be able to put it back. Similarly, don’t leave machines loaded up with unnecessary kilos of weight. Please consider the next user who may not be as confident or competent as you.
2. Bring a towel and use it
Gyms can be some of the most germ-ridden places you can go. Viruses love nonporous surfaces such as steel weights in particular. So, for both your own sake and the sake of other members, use that towel. Besides the sanitary reasons, using a sweat towel will keep you feeling clean and dry while working out. Don’t be shy, wipe down and then lay your gym towel over the bench or mat for added protection. Another very important factor is to remember to wash your gym towels each and every day as towels soaked in sweat attract unwanted bacteria. Yuk!
3. Clean up after yourself
Related to the previous point, if you still manage to sweat through your towel or for some other reason leave sweat on a piece of equipment, grab some paper towel and disinfectant spray to do clean up your mess. We have handy Hygiene Stations highlighted in yellow all around the club, complete with spray bottles and paper towels that you can use to wipe the equipment before and after you use it.
We clean & disinfect our gym on a regular basis, but it is still a good idea to exercise with caution. It’s a house rule that all members must make use of a sweat towel on the equipment at all times – no towel, no workout. If you forget your own towel, remember you can rent a towel from the Front Desk for just €2. Or ask a member of the team about a monthly PlusPack for just €10, giving you a fresh sweat towel on each visit.
