Plus Fitness State Based Re-Opening Framework
Progressively across Australia many of our gyms have reopened. As this has happened, there have been some changes to the way we train and interact. As an Aussie brand we are asking you to embrace the Aussie spirit and show patience and understanding as we all manage these adjustments.
Below you will find a list of the different States and Territories where Plus Fitness gyms are located with a breakdown of their current status.
It is important to know that at a time where so much has changed for us all, some things do remain the same! We
are still the same gym, still the same team, and we are just as excited as
always to see you!
Something else that hasn't changed is that the wellbeing and safety of our members and staff is of the upmost importance to us at Plus Fitness. This is why we have implemented a range of increased cleaning, hygiene and safety protocols at the gym which include;
- Hand sanitiser stations.
- Equipment sanitising stations with disinfectant sprays and wipes.
- Social distancing protocols;
- Plus our staff implementing our stringent cleaning protocols across the day.
We are also asking our members to do their part to keep the gym hygienic and safe by;
- Washing your hands or using the hand sanitiser provided before and after you train
- Using a towel on all equipment and if you have forgotten your towel to either purchase on or return later once you have one.
- Wiping down the equipment after use,
- Practising safe social distancing, and;
- If you are not feeling well, remembering it’s Ok to skip a training day!
At this stage we have the following information relating to each State and Territory where we are located and we will continue to keep this updated as more information becomes available;
Western Australia: Open 24/7.
South Australia Open 24/7.
Queensland: Open 24/7.
ACT: Open 24/7 with a member capacity of 100 members when staffed and 25 members outside of our staffed hours.
New South Wales: There is currently a requirement for gyms to be staffed at all times. This means that we are not able to trade 24 hours a day at this time. Please contact your local Plus Fitness (search for their web page here) or check out their Facebook page for information about opening hours by location.
VIC: The Victorian Government has imposed Stage 4 restrictions across the State. This means that all Victorian located Plus Fitness gyms are currently closed with all memberships suspended.

Plus Fitness Re-Opening Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe to use the gym?
Yes, gyms are incredibly safe and this comes from the top with Greg Hunt, Minister for Health saying this himself*. It is still very important that we all follow the Government guidelines which includes our increased cleaning and hygiene protocols and ensuring we are all practicing sensible social distancing.
Can you contract Coronavirus from sweat?
All evidence points to you not being able to contract Coronavirus from sweat. Coronavirus is a respiratory infection and according to current evidence from the WHO, the Covid-19 virus is primarily transmitted between people through respiratory droplets, and sweat is not this.**
When will my membership fees recommence?
Your membership fees will only recommence once your gym is permitted to re-open.
What if I turn up to the gym and have forgotten my towel?
Many of our gyms do sell towels however if they do not have any or you do not wish to buy one we will need to ask you to return later once you do have a towel.
