In addition to the measures in government guidelines, there are specific points that should be borne in mind in respect of outdoor gyms:

- Before opening undertake a safety check of the equipment, make sure the movement on all dynamic pieces is unhindered and check there is no movement in the equipment from their fixings.

- We recommend regular cleaning of the equipment. Please do NOT wipe down with bleach or any bleach solution since this will affect the paintwork.

- Cleansing can be undertaken in the following ways:

    1. warm soapy water

    2. anti-bacterial wipes

    3. bleach-free disinfectant spray or alcohol solution.

- We suggest that users carry anti-bacterial hand gel and sanitise their hands before using each piece of equipment. Users should also wash their hands in hot soapy water before and after using the gym.

- We do have double and triple users’ pieces where each user faces each other. We would recommend only one user uses this equipment at any one time.

- We suggest that user’s workout on one piece of equipment each time and then moving onto another rather than using the equipment as a circuit.
