Dear members;

After the update by the Federal Government yesterday in relation to capacities for rooms and gatherings we have signed all rooms in our facility and will be monitoring numbers constantly to ensure compliance.

As a result we have modified the class capacity for all our group exercise classes. These capacity numbers are below the maximum numbers allowed in each room, to ensure all members feel safe while getting their exercise.

Class maximums are as follows;
Aqua Aerobics: 15
Group Ex Studio 40
Mind and Body: 30
Spin Room: 10
Functional Zone: 20

Given some members are opting to stay home at the moment most classes will not reach capacity.

A new timetable will be released on March 30.

Due to the capacity limits please be aware our STEAM ROOM is also now closed.

Thank you for your ongoing support and please continue to apply additional hygiene practices in line with our conditions of entry and Government recommendations.

We are confirming we are still open as usual this week and all scheduled class will go ahead at this stage.

As we unpack the new rules brought in by the Federal Government and await any further detail from the State Government,we will continue to work on how we can modify our programs and offering and ensure we continue to provide the wide range of facilities and programs we have always done. Please keep checking into our Facebook page and website for further details. Thank you

To all our valued members – You would have hopefully received correspondence from Management recently in relation to what we are doing in club to manage the safety of our members and guests during this COVID-19 pandemic.

While this is a very fluid situation we will continue to provide updates to our members through our website and Facebook.  To further update you on any changes to operations at the Centre.

As of today – 16 March 2020

  • All gymnastics classes are on as scheduled
  • Swim programs are currently running.  The only program which has been suspended is the Sea Turtles program.
  • The Fitness Centre remains open with all facilities and classes operating.

Some changes to our operations that you will notice at the Facility;

  • An increase in cleaning schedules and an increase in hand sanitiser and wipes throughout the centre.
  • All Fitness members must show reception staff they have a towel before entering the club
  • We will be reducing the capacities of some group fitness classes
  • Staff policies are in place to prevent any staff attending work with symptoms of a cold or flu.

Further plans are in place should further operational restrictions come into effect and we will activate these as circumstances dictate.

We thank you for your loyal patronage and membership at Castle Hill fitness and Aquatic Centre.
