Team Durham gyms reopen today

(12 April 2021)

We are delighted to re-open the doors to both The Fitness Centre and Queens Campus Sports Centre gyms today! 

The last year has presented many challenges for us all but the Fitness Team have continued to work hard to maintain your mental and physical wellbeing throughout by ensuring their YouTube channel has been populated with quality exercise classes for you to follow from home and in 2021 alone have accumulated over 8,000 views.


Whilst the focus from Monday will be to re-open both sites safely and welcome members back to the gym, the team will also stream new two classes per week on their YouTube channel to ensure they cater for everyone. Each Monday there will be a new circuit class which will have a different focus each week and on Friday there will be low impact circuits released concentrating on improving mobility.


For those looking to return to the gym from Monday please be aware that our Covid safe protocols are still in place to ensure a safe environment for you to return to training. Rigorous cleaning regimes have been implemented as well as a booking system which allows the team to monitor capacity efficiently.


View our full return to the gym video here for more information about our updated procedures.


Please also remember:

  • we require you to wear a face mask on entry and exit of the gym
  • please regularly sanitise your hands, clean equipment before and after use
  • please train individually and maintain social distancing at all times when using the facility
  • your gym slot must be pre booked here


We can’t wait to see you all back in our facilities soon.
