Maintaining your wellness regime at home
Looking after our minds and bodies has never been more important. Right now we have to make our wellness a priority, so Ally (Pilates Reformer instructor) and Marcel (Yoga instructor) have made these videos of some routines you can follow at home during lockdown.
23 MARCH 2020
In accordance with the Government’s decision this afternoon to move to alert level 3 and to level 4 within 48 hours, BodyTech Gym will temporarily close, effective immediately.
Here’s how your membership will be managed while the gym is closed:
- your membership will be suspended at no cost as of the day the gym closes and no further action is required by you. Please note, reinstatement of your membership will commence from the gym reopening date.
- if a scheduled workshop was cancelled due to the gym closure, you’ll receive a credit to your account or, if requested, a refund
- we’ll extend the expiration date accordingly for any unused days stemming from 1-month trial memberships.
For any additional questions about your membership, please contact email@example.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
You can download some fast cardio workouts to keep up your training from home!

Thanks for your patience and consideration during this extraordinary time. Stay well.
These are extraordinary times and, as a valued BodyTech member, we wanted to reassure you that we’re doing everything in our power to keep your gym visits safe. We’ve always been committed to exemplary gym hygiene but as a result of Coronavirus we are, in consultation with a clinical infectious diseases professional, taking extra measures to further increase the hygiene level of our facilities and equipment. As a result we’ve upgraded our cleaning products to two recommended hospital grade cleaner + sanitiser products for both facilities and exercise equipment. And as an extra precaution we’ve also doubled the frequency of our deep cleaning schedule, especially to all grab and touch surfaces (sinks, taps, digital locks, showers, toilets, doors, hair dryers, irons and lockers and bench tops).
