COVID-19 Info - Affordable Fitness


We can't wait to welcome you back with open arms from a distance!

We are excited and ready to bring our Affordable Fitness community back together. Behind the scenes we have planned our new health & safety protocols, so that you can feel confident to exercise in the fun & friendly environment that we all know and love.

We will contact all of our members via text, e-newsletter and a post on Facebook as soon as we know all the details surrounding the conditions of opening. Therefore, it is more important than ever that we have your correct contact details. Please email us at info@affordablefitness.com.au with your latest details and we will update your records.

All gym memberships were placed on HOLD when we closed on 23rd March and fees have been deferred until we re-open. If your billing cycle falls on Wednesday 17th June, your gym membership fees will resume from that date.

If you wish to continue your HOLD please email us with the date that you wish to return to the gym at info@affordablefitness.com.au

Here’s a glimpse of what to expect when Affordable Fitness re-opens

Social Distancing - Stay 1.5m apart at all times.


  • Social distancing will be key, so numbers will be restricted to 100 patrons in the gym at any time. Your visit will be limited to 1 hour.
  • Class numbers have to be limited to 9 patrons.

  • Once at Affordable Fitness, a contactless temperature check will take place before you manually swipe your membership card.
  • We ask you to wash your hands before coming to the gym and will ask you to sanitise them on arrival. Please continue to wash and sanitise your hands whenever possible whilst at the gym and before leaving. Hand sanitiser will be readily available.
  • All members must wipe down any equipment they use before and after use. Disinfectant spray bottles and wipes will be readily available.
  • We will have a 15-minute gap between classes so that we all have time to sanitise the exercise area and equipment before the next session.
  • Some equipment will be temporarily out of use to allow for social distancing.
  • Please keep 1.5m between yourself and other members and Affordable Fitness staff at all times.
  • Please bring a water bottle, a large towel to place on all equipment (a second smaller towel is recommended if you anticipate working up a sweat!) and an exercise mat.
  • Lockers will not be available until further notice.
  • Showers will not be available until further notice.
Love your Fitness


  • If you are feeling unwell, even with mild symptoms, please stay at home until you are feeling well again. We encourage you to talk to your GP and consider having a COVID-19 test. Notify us at all times if you have had a COVID test, have been in contact with a confirmed case or have tested positive yourself.
  • If we are informed that a member has produced a positive COVID-19 test, we will have to temporarily close the gym whilst a deep clean takes place.


  • We were doing it before we closed and we will be back at it again after we re-open! Affordable Fitness staff will be rostered on to sanitise all high touch-point surfaces and equipment on rotation throughout the day.
  • All Affordable Fitness staff have completed the Australian Department of Health Infection Control COVID-19 online training.
So, this is just a glimpse of what the changes will look like once we re-open. We will email you with clear instructions on how to download and use the booking app and before heading back to the gym!

Luckily, we will have a record of all members that are in the gym each day due to our booking system. We also recommend that you download the COVID SAFE app as an extra precaution so that any reported cases are traceable.

We can't wait to see you all again soon!
