Qmotion is the Students' Union run Sport & Fitness Centre, located on the Mile End campus. We provide students, staff, and members of the community with great facilities in a safe and welcoming environment.

COVID-19 Info

Throughout the pandemic, we’re so proud to have been able to maintain a safe and secure space for our members to have a great workout, and feel comfortable doing so.

With Government’s recent announcement regarding face coverings we wanted to remind our community that ensuring the wellbeing of our members and staff as our first priority, we want to take the time to remind you that there is still work to be done in order to keep ourselves and our community safe.

We could not have maintained Qmotion as a safe area for physical activity without the understanding and cooperation of our members, and for that we want to say a massive thank you! Your actions have helped to keep everyone safe, and have shown us how strong our Qmotion community really is. We have the confidence that you will continue to support us through these next stages of our operation, and help us transition safely into our new normal.

How We Are Keeping You Safe

Face Coverings

We strongly encourage all users to wear a suitable face covering whilst in the facility. This includes when entering the facility, in changing rooms and communal areas, and when within all workout areas. Face coverings should be removed during exercise.

Extensive and Frequent Cleaning

Our facility, including all exercise equipment, will be deep cleaned every night. Members of the Qmotion team will also be cleaning surfaces and equipment throughout the day.


We are keeping all of our self-cleaning stations around the gym. We are requiring all of our members to continue cleaning your equipment after use as part of our standard expectations of gym etiquette.

Hand Sanitising

We have installed hand sanitiser stations throughout the facility to make it easy for you to regularly clean your hands. We also ask that you sanitise your hands when you enter the facility to help keep everyone safe.

Changes To The Gym Floor

Now that the regulations on social distancing have been removed, we have been able to provide you with more options to get active within the gym!

We have been able to increase the number of exercise zones in the gym. This means even more cardio machines and the return of some of our previously-removed equipment! We have also been able to remove the tape in some areas, giving you more flexibility whilst on the gym floor.

You may also share equipment with fellow members, though we ask that you please take care to clean in-between sets. You are now able to train with others, though we are still recommending that you maintain social distancing wherever possible.

Recommendations To Members

• Wear a face covering whenever you are not exercising.

• Remain socially distanced wherever possible.

• If you will be exercising with others, stick to pairs or small groups to allow for social distancing in the gym.

• Arrive changed and ready to train to allow for social distancing in the changing rooms.

• Restrict your workout to 1 hour to avoid congestion in the gym.

• Avoid our busier times during the evening between 5pm-7pm on weekdays.

• Be considerate and conscientious towards others, and finish using an exercise station as soon as reasonably possible.

• Avoid drinking from fountains and bring a full bottle with you.
