Bootcamp and fitness training

From 19 July:
Under Step 4 of the government roadmap, you no longer need to stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with. There are no longer any limits on the number of people you can meet. However, COVID-19 has not gone away, so it’s important to remember the actions you can take to keep yourself and others safe. The government has issued some guidance on how to continue to act carefully, remain cautious and help prevent the spread. Please read this guidance before you join any local bootcamps on open spaces or refer to advice provided by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA).

From Monday 17 May, as per government guidance, personal training, coaching and group exercise can take place in any numbers, subject to sport-specific guidance.

Any booking requests must include an updated public liability that includes a Covid-19 assessment risk.  Organisers must demonstrate that they are mitigating risk to public health by implementing effective infection prevention and control measures.
