Since reopening, our members have rated us 4.5 out of 5 for safety and wellbeing.

"The team are working so hard to ensure the club is a
safe and clean environment, but still a fun place to visit.
I hadn’t realised how much I missed the gym until I returned."

Gym facilities

Get back into your routine with the return of our state-of-the-art gym facilities, with all the space and equipment you need to enjoy a varied and challenging workout. 

Whether you've been yearning for a return to your favourite cardio machines, desperate to get back to a huge range of free weights, or keen to pick up where you left off with our functional training equipment - we have everything you need and more in our spacious gyms. We're also offering socially distanced Personal Training sessions so you can enjoy the added benefits of training face to face under the guidance of our experts.

Plus, with reduced capacity, social distancing measures such as increased spacing between all equipment, sanitisation stations and constant cleaning, our gyms provide the quality environment you need to work out both safely and efficiently.

Fitness Classes

We're preparing to bring our indoor fitness classes at Clubs in England and Scotland from 17th May. If you thrive on the extra motivation you get by working out in a group, our brilliant range of classes means you'll find a session that suits you, with everything from Group Cycling and Yoga, to signature David Lloyd classes such as Blaze, Rhythm and Ign1te. 

Until then, our varied programme of outdoor fitness classes brings you daily holistic, group cycling, strength and conditioning and HIIT classes in spacious covered marquees.

Our pools allow you to enjoy a few lengths or some time in the pool with the family whatever the weather. Relax and cool down with a quick dip or enjoy an invigorating training session. 

We've put measures in place to ensure your return to the water is a safe one. We're limiting the number of swimmers per lane (dependent on the length of the pool) and are asking swimmers to swim at 5 metre intervals to ensure they can keep a safe distance between themselves and others.

We've also reintroduced a number of swimming lessons, with reduced capacities and at least a 10 minute gap between sessions to prevent any gathering or waiting around in groups.

Kids classes

We've got lots of ways to help kids stay healthy and active, with classes running indoors and outdoors.

Kids aged 3-11 can take part in our exciting range of DL Kids classes, including Action Squad, Sports Squad and Scooter Squad sessions - all of which have been adapted so they can be done safely and with adequate social distancing. Where possible we’re running our DL Kids classes in the usual DL Kids studios. We’re also using our sports halls, badminton and tennis courts, studios and outdoor areas to make sure that each child has enough space.

Each child will be given their own space to work in, as well as individual equipment to allow them to maintain a safe social distance and prevent any risk of cross contamination.

Our creche facilities have also reopened in England Scotland and Wales, and sessions are bookable for one or two hours, per day, per child.

Tennis courts

Enjoy a game on our match-quality indoor and outdoor tennis courts.

Courts are available for members aged 5 and above, so whether you're a racquets lover or new to the sport, you can enjoy a game of singles or doubles either indoors or out in the open air.

To make sure you stay safe, courts must be booked in advance, and we've set aside 10 minutes between bookings to allow staff to clean all touchpoints and ready the court for the next players. And if racquet sports are really your thing, you can make the most of our premium squash and badminton courts too.

Safety & Social Distancing

The safety of our teams and members is our number one priority, and while things might look a little different, our clubs continue to provide a premium health and fitness experience. We are incorporating extensive cleaning protocols and social distancing practices throughout our clubs. Key measures include:

  • Limiting the number of members in certain areas of the club.
  • Hand sanitiser stations are located in reception and throughout the club.     
  • Using a viricidal disinfectant cleaning solution, proven to kill enveloped viruses within 60 seconds.
  • Enhanced cleaning schedules to maintain high level of hygiene, particularly across high contact points in the club.
  • Reduced class occupancy to allow for social distancing.
  • Team members are sanitising equipment after every class.
  • More space has been created in the gym and additional gym spaces introduced at most clubs so you can exercise at a safe distance.
  • We have installed thermal imaging camera technology in some of our clubs.
