The safety of our customers and staff is of the utmost importance to us at CSA and consequently we have put into place new measures to make your visit to the gym as safe and enjoyable as we can. These are difficult times but we sincerely hope that you will ALL come back and train with us which in turn gives us support for the future of the club.
We have taken all necessary steps as stated by the government to provide an enhanced level of hygiene and safety within the club without compromising on class content. We request that you read the procedures that we have put in place carefully and make an informed choice before returning to training.
All class sizes have been reduced to adhere to the permitted number of students to the square meterage of the premises as set out by government guidelines. We are pleased to be able to offer individually socially distanced work stations with boxing bags. You may train in all disicplines for pad work or BJJ/Nogi with a member of the same household or a dedicated training partner. Where this is not possible we will endeavour to partner you with another member through out the duration of the class and a record will be taken of who you trained with during the class.
There will be time between every class to allow for thorough cleaning, so please leave the mats as quick as possible. Ventilation will be provided with both the shutter door and the rear fire exit open to allow air to circulate within the unit. We will all use high powered fans where necessary.
All classes MUST be booked via the Zen Planner App, either through a monthly membership or on a PAYG basis. This is available via the App Store or Google Play. Classes can be booked up to 7 days in advance and cancelled up to an hour before. If the reserved class is not cancelled it will be taken off your monthly limit. Please refer to our page on class booking for further information.
We will look at the schedule regularly, should there be classes that are proving popular we will add more or remove these where there is little demand.
Strictly no sparring, pad work or grappling. The exception to this is for members of the same household bubble.
