WELCOMING YOU BACK
Welcome back to Trilogy!
Our gyms, fitness classes and some of our swimming pools are now open. The Forum Cinema opens on 7 August. We continue to re-open the rest of our facilities in phases and will be announcing dates for Junior activities, courts, health suites, Berzerk and our community programmes in due course.
To keep our customers and colleagues safe gym sessions, fitness classes and swim sessions need to be booked in advance.
As we welcome you back, we want you to stay fit and healthy in a safe environment. We have some simple but effective rules in place that everyone must follow. Watch our video to find out more.
Revised Opening Times and Programmes
We’ve opened in a measured way in line with the latest Government guidelines. This means initially our opening times will be shorter.
Gym sessions can be booked in 1 hour slots so we can ensure everyone can workout in a safe, clean and socially distanced environment. We’re sorry, but under 16s can not be able to train with us initially.
Please arrive for your pre booked session ready to train and do not bring bags. Our gym changing rooms remain closed for the time being but customer toilets are available.
Please arrive for your swim session wearing your swimming costume. Reduced swimming changing facilities will be available for after your swim but there will be no showers.
Swim lockers will be available but we ask you only bring essential items, bags will not be allowed on poolside. Please remember a £1 coin for Danes Camp, all our centres are cashless for the time being so we will not be able to provide you with one.
Some of your favourite fitness classes may not be on the timetable and Mounts Baths will not be running classes initially, but we are working hard to get back to a full timetable as soon as possible. Please ensure you book your fitness class in advance.
We have removed mats from our classes for the time being. If you are attending one of our fitness classes please bring your own mat.
We will continue to offer some classes online for members.
Swim sessions are available at Cripps Recreation Centre (members only), Danes Camp Leisure Centre and Lings Forum Leisure Centre and can be booked online in 45 minute slots.

Does physical activity (exercise) increase resilience to Covid-19?
WHO recommends regular physical activity benefits both the body and mind. It can reduce high blood pressure, help manage weight and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and various cancers - all conditions that can increase susceptibility to COVID-19.
Physical activity leads to improvements in immune health and metabolic health, both of which are linked to COVID-19 risk. Furthermore, physical activity is central in weight management and positive changes in body composition, which again are linked to COVID-19 risk.
