Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The latest Scottish Government advice is as follows:

One on one personal training or coaching (i.e yoga) is permitted if it is outdoors, physical distancing can be maintained, and is with members of your household and/or members of up to four other households.

A coach or personal trainer should not deliver training to more than four households at any one time or provide training to more than four households per day.

When participating in training or coaching, where possible, avoid touching surfaces and sharing equipment and touching your mouth and face.

If meeting people from another household outdoors, you should meet only in small groups - no more than 15 people in total at a time, and you should not meet people from more than four other households each day. 

Indoor sport facilities must remain closed at this time.

Full details can be found on their website.
