Traffic light system

What is the new traffic light system?

The Government announced a new COVID-19 Protection Framework ('The traffic light system') that came into effect on 3 December 2021. It's the Government's approach to managing COVID-19 in the community.

What does COVID-19 Protection Framework mean for gyms?

In the Red setting there is a 200-person maximum limit for indoor gatherings per defined space. That number limit does not include instructors or trainers. None of our spaces have more than 200 people in them.

In the Red setting our staff will be wearing masks, except when coaching a class. You can choose to wear a mask to protect yourself and others if you wish.


Will Revl require its members to be vaccinated against COVID-19?

From now until Monday 4 April 2022, anyone who visits Revl needs to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and present a My Vaccine Pass. 

From Tuesday 5 April 2022, it’ll no longer be a Government requirement to use My Vaccine Pass and you won’t need one to access Revl.

What if I’ve been on a membership pause due to vaccination requirements?

Thanks for sticking with us! We’d love to have you back from 5 April 2022. Please email the team at and we can help you get all ready to go!


What safety protocols and guidelines does Revl follow?

We are following ExerciseNZ’s guidelines on best practice for keeping members safe at all times, which have been developed with both Sport New Zealand and Worksafe using the Ministry of Health’s protocols.

What will Revl do to keep me safe?

Everything we can. We will put in place extensive processes and protocols to ensure your safety:

  • Physical distancing of 1m (at Red settings only)
  • Up to 15 minutes between each class (Red settings only)
  • Sanitisation stations
  • Further equipment cleaning
  • Deep cleaning regime
  • Member use of workout towels
  • Pre-disinfected cloths for members to wipe equipment during classes
  • Staff will be wearing masks (Red setting only)
What hygiene etiquette does everyone have to follow?

We ask that every member takes responsibility for their personal hygiene and also respects the space of others. We ask that you wash / sanitise your hands upon entry, cover coughs and sneezes, bring your own towel and that you don’t share or touch anything that you don’t have to.

In the Red setting, wearing a mask is encouraged except when exercising.

Will you be doing extra cleaning?

Yes, you will see more cleaning taking place during the day. At night we will continue doing our enhanced deep cleans throughout the studio. We will also ask that you wipe down equipment before and after use to help us keep equipment clean.  

Are there sanitising stations available?

Yes, these are throughout the club and at Reception. The Ministry of Health also recommends you wash your hands with soap and water often for at least 20 seconds.

Do I need to wear a mask in the gym?

While it is no longer mandatory for you to wear a mask in gyms, we do encourage you to do so for the protection of yourself and others.

Are there limits on class numbers at the Red level?

In the Red setting the limit is either based on 1m distancing or 200 people (whichever is the lesser) per defined space. In the Orange or Green setting there are no limits on class numbers. As all our classes have less than 200 people we will be able to operate at full class capacity at all traffic light settings.

Are there Gym Floor limits at the Red level?

Yes, in the Red setting the limit is either based on 1m distancing or 200 people (whichever is the lesser) per defined space e.g. The Yard.  

What are the Conditions of Entry and COVID-19 Health Questions I need to answer under the COVID-19 Protection Framework?

The Conditions of Entry are:

  • Stay home if unwell
  • Wearing a mask is encouraged (in the Red setting) at all times except when exercising
  • Wash or sanitise hands before entering the club and when moving through different areas
  • Scan your membership barcode (app or card) every time you enter club
  • Bring and use a sweat towel every time you work out
  • Wipe down equipment before and after use
COVID-19 Health Questions:
  • You do not have any symptoms associated with COVID-19 (e.g. fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, sneezing/runny nose or loss of sense of smell)
  • You do not have COVID-19 nor are you awaiting the results from being tested for COVID-19

When you scan your app or membership card coming into the studio you’ll be confirming your agreement to these Conditions of Entry and COVID-19 Health Questions. You’ll also be confirming that you will abide by all Health & Safety procedures and protocols.

Please note, the Ministry of Health warns that if you have an underlying health condition and/or are over 70, you may be at greater risk of COVID-19 becoming a severe illness, if contracted. If you do choose to attend the gym please ensure you follow all Ministry of Health guidelines in addition to these club conditions of entry. 

I’ve recovered from COVID-19 – can I came back to Revl?

If you have been diagnosed as having COVID-19 and have completed your self-isolation period and are free of COVID-19 symptoms then you can return to the gym. Please follow all COVID-19 processes and protocols including personal hygiene expectations.

At the gym

Will the timetables be the same?

We’re making sure that our timetables can manage the flow of people to and from studios and changing rooms, and give ourselves – and you – time to wipe down and clean equipment between classes. Please refer to the app or website for the latest timetable and make sure you book your classes in advance.

Are you providing stretching mats, swiss balls and rollers?

Yes, these will be available under the traffic light system – please clean them before and after use to keep everyone safe.

What about Changing Rooms?

Changing Rooms will be open, but the less you can use them the better. If you can come dressed in your gear all ready to workout it’ll mean that you’ll get in and out of the studio quicker, have less interaction with others, and won’t have to worry about sharing the vanity benches. Please respect the space of your fellow gym-goers and be kind.

How will you let people know about any restrictions?

Upon entry to the studio you will see our COVID-19 signage and there are also reminders throughout the club. Sanitisation stations are available. We will also inform you via e-mail, social media and on our website.
