Health and Fitness (Gym & Classes)

Derby Active Health and Fitness welcomes you back! 

We welcomed gym users back in April and from 17 May, we welcome back our class enthusiasts. 

Spacing of equipment and increased cleaning periods continue, as we continue to ensure you have a safe environment to enjoy. 

Please remember that on occasion you will notice that some pieces of equipment may be not in use, this is for your safety to ensure social distancing. We ask that you wipe down any equipment before and after use and only touch equipment you intend to use. 

All sessions in the gym will need to be pre-booked and will be 75 minutes long. This allows the team to deep clean the equipment prior to the next session starting. In the gym, we have hand sanitiser and wipes for everyone to use. 

Classes will return from 17 May, bookings now being taken. 

Booking activities 

In-line with COVID-19 requirements all activities have to be booked in advance. This ensures your safety by allowing social distancing by regulating numbers and also allows time to clean areas prior to the next session starting. 

We recommend the best way to book is by online bookings, but you can also book by telephone.


When arriving

On arrival at the centre's, we ask that you queue in the designated areas for your activity and that you arrive ready dressed in your workout clothes. Please wear a face-covering around the building, until you have reached your activity area, where it can then be removed. 

There will not be any changing or shower facilities available, although there will be access to toilets. We also ask that you bring minimal items with you, only a water bottle, your keys and your phone if required. There will not be lockers to store items, so please only bring your essential items to workout and nothing of value. 


If you have any questions about using the gym, visit our FAQ section on the Welcome Back web page, or contact us by email or phone.
