Latest Update - 25/07/2021

Level 0 Update 

As we continue to follow guidelines and ensure our services are safe, we’ll be implementing the following changes from Monday 26 July 2021. 

Removal of Bookings 

Gym: no bookings, just show up - check out opening hours

Swim Sessions/Family Swims/Leisure Pool Peak and Off-Peak: no bookings, just show up - see our swim timetables here.

Please remember to swipe in at reception or kiosk when you arrive.  

Bookings still in place

Lane Swimming and Xcite Aqua: You do need to pre-book Lane Swimming and Xcite Aqua classes - please see our Swimming FAQs for more details. 

Fitness Classes: You can still pre-book fitness classes via our app or website. We advise you do this to avoid disappointment due to capacity numbers in these activities. 

Gym Appointments: You can continue to book your gym appointments and golf tee off times via the app and website.

Sports: bookings are currently available via reception

Find out how to book here.

Please check out our safety commitment before visiting us!

Capacity and Queuing 

Whilst removing the need to book in certain activities is making access easier, there are times of the day (due to high levels of demand) where you may be required to wait. We apologise in advance for this and anticipate you not having to wait more than 15 minutes. 

Fitness Classes 

New Fitness Class timetables will be in place from Monday 26 April and are live on the app and website to book now.

You can also view our fitness class timetables here.  

The most noticeable change will be the increase in capacity numbers in line with latest guidelines. Some classes will continue to be in alternative studio space to allow more access to customers.

Please read our updated FAQs on attending a fitness class before you visit us :) 

Activities Returning 

Indoor Contact Sports, i.e football, will be available from Monday 26 July and is bookable at reception, with online bookings for all sports activities returning soon.

Social Distancing

Social Distancing will be reduced to 1m in line with current guidelines and allows increased capacity in our venues. Floor markings will be removed within our Fitness Classes and customers will observe a 1m distance at all times during the class. We do encourage our customers to come beach ready (costume on under clothes) for the pool and gym ready for other workouts. There will be limited availability in our dry side changing rooms, and we encourage you to change and shower at home.


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

Health & Safety 

We’ll continue to monitor the impact of these changes as well as adhering to ventilation guidance, capacity limits, wearing of face coverings and additional cleaning and hygiene measures. Hygiene stations are available throughout our facilities, and protective screens will remain in the gym at this time.

Beyond Level 0

The following activities are not due to return until we are beyond Level 0, and if restrictions allow at that time. This is mainly due to these activities being in small areas for adult access and cleaning required between uses to maintain safety levels. 

  • Sauna and Steam Rooms 
  • Soft Play and Supervised Soft* 

*Please note limited supervised soft play will be available at Xcite Whitburn but this is due to the space of the area. 

If you have any queries regarding your activities please contact your local Xcite venue.

We continue to listen to your feedback through our daily surveys, to our staff and via our online platforms. As always, the safety of our customer and staff will be at the forefront of our decisions.
