Beyond Level 0 Update 

As we continue to follow guidelines and ensure our services are safe, the following changes have been implemented


Please read out our latest Safety Commitment and FAQs before visiting us.

Inveralmond Community High School

Public Swimming Sessions are back! 

Tuesday & Thursday: 15.30 – 21.30

Friday: 15.30 – 19.30

Note between 15.30-17.30 only half the pool is available

Xcite memberships include swimming @ ICHS

Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday are not available for public access due to club and private hire.

Deans Community High School

We are looking to restart our Learn 2 Swim programme at Deans Community High School after the October School Holidays. Let us know your feedback on what lessons and times would be suitable and we'll review when finalising the timetable :) 

Fitness Classes

Group Fitness Classes back up to 100% capacity! 

We’ve been successfully monitoring our CO2 levels to make sure that we can increase the numbers and remain within a comfortable safe zone, as indicated in the latest guidelines. 

The classes have been running at 75% capacity and we are now confident, with the measures we have put in place, to reinstate this to 100%.

This is GREAT news as you’ll have more access to classes with all your Xcite favourite instructors!*

Oh, and you can now bring your own towel (and to the gym too)!  

Note, Group Cycle capacity will gradually increase at some venues as bikes return to studios and we monitor the C02 levels. 

New Fitness Class Timetable  

New Fitness Class timetables are here! 

We do advise you to book in advance to secure your spot and ask if you can’t make it to cancel your booking and let someone else attend. Please check out the Xcite App or website for details and to book! 

Downloadable timetables will be available here from Monday 23 August.

*Note, Fitness Classes are not included in Xcite Gold or Silver Memberships.

No show fee update 

From Wednesday 1 September the 'no show' fee of £2.00 will apply to Members for non-cancelled booked activities i.e fitness classes, lane swimming and sauna & steam rooms.

Please make sure if you cannot attend your booked activity that you cancel it via the Xcite App, website or at reception to avoid a charge. 

This charge was introduced to encourage members to cancel if they could not attend freeing up the space for another member to attend.  

Please note you cannot cancel by email or via our social media channels, only via your online account or contacting Reception directly

Xcite Online 

As in venue fitness classes increase we are reducing our Live online timetable to reflect demand. A new Xcite Online live timetable will be in place from Monday 6 September which will be reviewed regularly. 

Xcite Online will continue to have a HUGE range of on demand Xcite classes and Les Mills content so you can have instant access any day anytime to suit your lifestyle!

Xcite Online is not included in any in venue Xcite membership. 


Check out our latest Swim Timetables for sessions. Note, you do not need to book public swims. 

You must pre-book Lane Swimming, Xcite Aqua and Sauna and Steam Rooms.

Sauna and Steam Rooms 

See the latest Sauna and Steam rooms availability and timetables here - these must be pre-booked on the Xcite App or website. 

More venues and times will be added over the next few weeks.

Soft Play

Soft Play is now available  at some of our venues. You don't need to book public sessions, but you can book supervised. More venues and times will be added over the next few weeks. 

See what's available now here.

Gym Screens 

Thank you to all who took part in our poll on the removal of our gym screens. We had a huge response and due to your feedback, we will adopt a hybrid approach and retain some of the screens giving you the choice of how you train. This will be implemented from September and continuously reviewed. 

What you said

“I much prefer the screens, makes me more comfortable running/working out”

“It’s not about Covid, it’s more about Privacy. I like the screens, especially at the treadmills and rowing machines. It feels more private and I feel less self-conscious about how fast (or slow) I’m going!”

“It's nice to be able to chat with a friend on the next cross trainer or bike as I workout. So removing the screens, or even removing some and having some in pairs would be nice.”


Please continue to book your sports activities at your Xcite venue reception. You can book golf online. 


We’ll continually review our opening hours to meet the demand and post updates on our website and social media. 

Face Coverings

Please continue to wear a face covering, as per Scottish Government Guidelines, when entering and exiting our buildings. We ask you to remove your mask once you reach your activity area and before you start training. Please also wear a face mask in the corridors, cafes and soft play areas if remaining within the area to supervise children.

Remember to use hand sanitisers provided and clean the kit before and after use :)
