Manchester Exchange Quay gym reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent distancing and disinfection provisions I enjoyed my yoga class and using the machines. Felt totally safe.
Date published: 2020-08-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Returning to the gym post lockdown I thought the space had been made nice and safe. Lots of floor markings, hand sanitiser stations, and gym cleaning equipment, which was great. I thought there were too many people in the weight lifting room. When going to the cleaning station people weren’t keeping their distance also it’s tricky to keep distance when going to select weights. The main gym floor was fine though. Perhaps the weights room could have a capacity limit?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super hot in the gym Went in the evening. Lovely and quiet. Clean but it was so hot inside
Date published: 2020-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well spaced out, good cleaning stations Surprisingly was very well kept, cleaned all my equipment with the things provided, people were also cooperating in terms of the squares mapped on the floor and ensuring they weren’t coming in to someone else’s space which was nice
Date published: 2020-08-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value overall Clean (this is a new thing)! Still good value even with reduced opening times, but equipment needs to be repaired more quickly. Far too many “taking a break” machines in the weights area. Water fountain is a bit rubbish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great gym but they need to manage capacity The gym is great, the safety precautions are good except they haven’t seemed to put a capacity on the members so even though we’re all trying to keep our distance, there is still a lot of people there and the distance between workout spaces is definitely less than 2m. I was finding it really uncomfortable training so close to so many people. Otherwise it was fine. I just felt uncomfortable the whole time.
Date published: 2020-08-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lack of cleanliness standards by members I observed a number of people using equipment and making no attempt to clean equipment either before or after use. In addition people were training together and making no attempt to social distance. If this is my experience having only reopened for a week it is a concern what the attitude will be as we enter the high risk autumn / winter period.
Date published: 2020-08-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good return. Looks a lot better than before Staff very helpful and supportive. Because of the limited number, almost all equipment are available or only short wait. I like it more now than before COVID.
