We would like to update you on our approach to the unfolding COVID-19 virus, more commonly known as Corona Virus. The safety of our members, staff and partners is our top priority, and we wanted to assure you that our strategy is based on the guidelines set out by the government, PHE (Public Health England) and PHW (Lechyd Cyhoeddus Cymru.)
The latest advice is that anybody who develops a continuous new cough or high temperature should stay at home for 7 days. If you are experiencing these new symptoms, please do not visit Rage Fitness until you’re able.
To reassure you, we haven’t had a positive diagnosis at Rage Fitness, but should we experience one, we will follow official guidelines on next steps and have a clear plan which reflects them. For the fitness industry to date, the guidance is to close for a short period (approx. 24-48 hours) in order to complete a full deep clean before reopening.
As a proactive measure, our cleaning teams are continually maintaining the highest possible levels of hygiene across all of our clubs. As well as their day to day routine, the teams have increased the frequency of our deep cleaning schedule.
We would ask for your support by following the steps below if you are visiting one of our clubs:
• Keep your hands as clean as possible, washing regularly and thoroughly, for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water. When it is not possible to do this, please use the hand sanitisers situated around the club
• When you have finished using a piece of fitness equipment, please use the anti-viral sprays available at hygiene stations situated around the club
• If you cough or sneeze, ideally into your elbow, please use a tissue and dispose of it, washing your hands with soap and warm water or using the hand sanitisers provided
• Please follow the latest government return traveller advice if you have recently visited a high-risk place
“Rage Together” works with a wider partnership through Avenue Services Limited and the Sanctuary Housing Group which includes Cheshire Police, Youth Justice Service, Social Services, Cheshire West and Chester Council, schools, local GP surgeries, Sport England and the NHS among others.
“Rage Together” has a clear focus on working with local authorities and health bodies to tackle a variety of social and behavioural issues such as youth offenders and under privileged children. Similarly, obesity, mental health, well-being and rehabilitation are targeted.
Preventative, education and employment support is provided, specifically targeting alcohol, drugs and crime which underpins the mission statement, “A big challenge starts with a small step”. Critical to the “Rage Together” brand is the vision of social inclusion for all.
“Rage Together” exists to improve the quality of life and the physical and mental wellbeing of people of all ages through sport and related activities which include education, prevention initiatives and mentoring.
The concepts of education and prevention are vital to compliment the services Rage “Together” offer. Working with the Youth Service, youth clubs and Avenue Services, they provide educational sessions direct to young people in various settings, including outreach where they connect directly with young people on the streets. Their ambition is to steer young people away from the perils and the damage alcohol and drug abuse can cause at the earliest point possible in their lives.
“Rage Me” is focused on delivering fitness classes, seasonal events, nutritional advice and personal training sessions across the North West. “Rage Me” targets local people of all ages and backgrounds on an individual basis who are interested in improving their health, fitness and well-being through attendance at various fitness classes or private sessions. We also work closely with local schools, Chester FC, Cheshire FA, Liverpool FC, Everton FC and Active Cheshire, delivering nutrition and fitness classes for children and teams.
