When the gym at Kelvin Hall reopens opening hours will be as follows:

Monday to Friday: 6am - 10pm

Saturday and Sunday: 8am - 6pm 

A booking system will be in place, with time slots for the gym and fitness class bookings available in advance. This can be booked online or via the Glasgow Club app.

Please note that changing facilities and lockers will not be available. Masks should be worn when entering the venue (unless exempt) but can be removed during physical activity. 

Glasgow Life is currently working on a phased reopening of some venues across the city. While Kelvin Hall will reopen, the Soft Play and Clip ‘n’ Climb facilities will not open immediately as a thorough process must be followed to ensure a safe return for users. Similarly PlayGym and Gymnastics classes will not restart at present. We will update customers when a reopening date is confirmed.
