Return to Fitness - As Leisure Facilities in Rochford set to Open

Thursday, April 8, 2021

Fusion Lifestyle and Rochford District Council are delighted to announce that in line with the government roadmap, indoor leisure facilities will reopen from 12th April at Clements Hall Leisure Centre and Rayleigh Leisure Centre.

Outdoor group exercise classes will continue at Clements Hall Leisure Centre, with indoor classes re-starting from 17th May.

The centres will continue to operate in line with government safety guidelines and those planning to visit will still be required to book and pay online, to ensure contact is minimised at each centre and allowing for the track and trace process to be implemented. Gym users will be asked to arrive ready to work out, and swimmers with their costumes under their clothes, ready to go.  These measures, combined with meticulous cleaning routines, are designed to keep customers safe and offer complete confidence to use the facilities and classes when they return to the centre.

Anthony Cawley, Director of Operations at Fusion said,

“It feels wonderful to finally be able to reopen our centres again.  We know the communities local to our facilities can’t wait to kick-start their favourite fitness regimes and our teams across the district can’t wait to welcome them back.  We've worked hard over the past months to ensure our centres continue to offer the very best facilities and that our customers can return with confidence and safety”

Matt Harwood White, Assistant Director of Assets & Commercial Services Rochford District Council said,

“12th April will see a big step towards normality across the leisure industry and a positive step towards health and fitness for our local communities.  We have worked closely with Fusion to keep everyone updated as restrictions have lifted, and we are delighted that we can play our part in supporting health and fitness across our District."

All centres will be open daily, but please refer to the individual centre’s websites for opening hours.  Bookings can be made up to seven days in advance, via download of the Fusion Lifestyle app or visit to register and use the booking facility.
