Throughout This 2nd Lockdown - Welcome Gym Needs Your Support

Throughout This 2nd Lockdown - Welcome Gym Needs Your Support

As you are aware, our Prime Minister announced a second nationwide lockdown from 5th November until 2nd December 2020. During this period, we need to temporarily close all of our facilities in line with government guidance and to support the national effort to protect our communities.

Whilst we completely understand that a second lockdown is necessary to help protect the NHS and save lives, it will significantly impact us and many other smaller gym operators. At this time we are asking for your support through these challenging times so that we can provide you and others with a strong future. And continue to help individuals from all backgrounds to improve their health and wellbeing.

Although Welcome Gym is a Charitable Trust, we still need substantial numbers of members to provide excellent facilities and varied classes to our local communities. Although we can protect our hardworking and committed staff through the extension of the furlough scheme, there are many additional fixed and operating costs, such as equipment leasing, utilities, and IT systems all of which continue - even through closure periods.

For this reason and because the lockdown is for a relatively short time, we will not be automatically freezing membership payments and hope that you will choose to stay with us and support the organisation for its long term future. In return, we commit to you that we will repay your generosity through a credit system. This credit will be made available to you, once we are over these current challenges, to redeem against membership, gym programmes, training sessions, guest passes, retail & more.

Our mission as a Community Benefit Society is to promote affordable and accessible fitness to our local areas, and we are totally committed to providing a safe and welcoming place to keep fit. We do our very best to ensure every single member feels confident in their environment and well looked after whenever they visit us. The gym is much more than just a place to work out, it is a community for all of us, and because of this, we believe we do have a bright long term future.

We know how necessary physical fitness is in boosting your mental as well as physical health and so during Lockdown2, we will also continue to support you with a good range of at-home classes and workouts to keep you active throughout.

This was not an easy decision for The Trustees, but we hope you understand why we need to take this approach, and we sincerely thank you for all your support.


We commit to providing all members who continue their payments with a credit to the value of their monthly membership fees in 2021. We will notify all members of the redemption process once the restrictions for COVID-19 are more permanently relaxed.

Stay safe, stay fit.
