Fitness fanatics are again able to return to their local gym and tackle those COVID kilos, provided they are double vaccinated.
After two months of online classes Cityfit Bathurst and D2F owner Mark Simons is happy to have members back on track to achieving their fitness goals.
"Everybody is super keen to get back and we're wrapped to be able to actually be back," he said.
"There are some strict rules that we've got to follow and we're doing our best to make those transitions as easy as possible for the members coming in."
For everyone's convenience, Cityfit and D2F members will be issued a new membership card after showing proof of double vaccination to save them having to display the certificate every time they use the gym.
Due to the large area of both gyms, the maximum capacity is 100 people so it is unlikely anyone will have to wait to use the facilities.
However, the classes are restricted to 20 people and Mr Simons has implemented a solution so no one misses out.
"What we've done, to give our members at Cityfit and D2F a broader range of classes to do, we've actually combined the memberships temporarily," he said.
"So if you're a member of one facility you can visit the other facility, just in this initial phase of reopening."
Currently masks are still mandatory, however, Mr Simons is waiting on clarification around wearing masks during strenuous exercise.
The Learn To Swim program will be delayed one week due to the late notice surrounding pools.
Given the size of Cityfit's pool, it takes the water around one week to heat to a comfortable temperature but classes will recommence on Monday, October 18.
Mr Simons hopes that their members were able to participate in the online classes during lockdown which will have helped them maintain a level of fitness.
However, for those who have lost some strength, the instructors have adjusted the classes to allow for members to regain their fitness safely at their own pace.
