We are working closely with the Victorian Govt on ensuring we are following the guidelines as set out in their Roadmap.
We have sent an email out to all of our members, if you have not received the email, if you could please check your ‘junk or spam folders’ and if it’s still not there, please email (for Werribee members)

Your health is our top priority and in accordance with Government orders and guidelines, we are pleased to announce a carefully planned, comprehensive approach to reopening. We will work together, staff and members to cooperatively improve everyone’s well-being.

WE ARE:

Preparing for Your Return
In addition to following Australian and State Government guidelines, In Balance Fitness is taking extra precautions to help our members and staff stay safe and healthy. This includes extensive cleaning protocols and social/physical distancing practices within all areas of the gym.

Increased cleaning protocols
We continue to follow stringent protocols for proper cleaning, disinfection and sanitisation, operations and maintenance, as well as adding additional procedures and staff to achieve a new level of cleanliness. We have expanded the sanitisation/disinfection of high-touch surfaces. Hours and schedules have been adjusted to allow for daily and nightly cleaning.
Additionally, we will require every member to bring a towel to workout. To place a towel between yourself and the machines/floor.

Providing Self-Cleaning and Sanitising Stations
Hand Sanitising stations have been strategically located with spray and wipes in close proximity to all equipment. Alcohol based hand sanitiser units are conveniently located throughout the club. Please use them.

Implementing A Safer Way to Be Together
We are taking careful actions to facilitate social/physical distancing. Look for extra signs to guide you through each space and help us all practice social/physical distancing.

Providing Additional Equipment Spacing
You will likely notice increased spacing between equipment and within workout areas to allow for appropriate social/physical distancing. Various signs will indicate the equipment in use and those pieces that will be rotated into use. Additional signs will instruct you to respect each other’s distance and use only certain pieces of equipment.

Modifying Group Fitness Classes
Due to regulations and guidelines provided, we will be limiting attendance to Group Exercise classes, which will require bookings, and schedules will be adjusted to be consistent with Government orders and guidelines and to allow for thorough cleaning between classes. We have put a condensed timetable in place that still allows for the most popular styles of classes along with the instructors and coaches you are familiar with. (See timetable) Look for floor indicators in your class, placed 1.5m apart to help practice social/physical distancing. There will be a disinfectant station set up, to wipe down equipment as you need, and we have removed yoga mats from the classroom. We request that if you have a mat, to bring your own, if not a large towel would work as well. Classes will be spaced to allow for the sanitising of the room and equipment.

To book you will need to download the app –

It is the IBFIT Werribee app, and your log in is the email address we have on file at the gym. Should this not work, please contact MC@inbalancefitness.com.au as soon as possible, so we can update your details.
You can also contact reception to book in for your preferred class; however, it is preferred that it is done via the app.
When booking, due to the limitations to numbers within the classes, we have limited the classes to 7 sessions per week. You can however book more than one per day, but not the same class on the same day. This could change weekly, due to the changing circumstances in relation to distancing and the numbers attending each class, so please keep an eye out for updates regularly.

Modifying Bathrooms
Depending on Government restrictions, we will open our showers when we are permitted. For now, the showers will be out of service. However, use of the toilets and sinks are permitted. Once these initial restrictions are eased, we will continue to practice social/ physical distancing. We will perform frequent sanitization of shared surfaces throughout the day using virus-killing disinfectants.

Providing a More Personal, Personal Training Experience
During Personal Training sessions your trainer will clean and wipe down each piece of equipment before and after each use. To protect members and Trainers, we will practice social/physical distancing of 1.5m during 1:1 session and eliminate any physical contact.

Health and Safety
We’re doing everything we can to protect the health and safety of both our members and staff as we welcome you back to the gym!
