Return to Fitness

Leisure facilities in Mendip set to open!

Fusion Lifestyle is delighted to announce, in line with the government roadmap, the following:

  • Indoor leisure facilities will reopen from 12th April at Frome Leisure Centre, Strode Swimming and Fitness and Wells Sport & Fitness.
  • From 12th April, Tor Sports and Leisure Centre will reopen all activities except swimming.
  • Shepton Mallet Lido is planning to re-open in May.
  • Outdoor group exercise classes have already been taking place at Frome Leisure Centre and Wells Sport & Fitness - and these will continue until indoor fitness classes are permitted from 17th May.

With restrictions finally lifting, the reopening of leisure centres means that residents in Mendip can once again enjoy their favourite fitness fix, including indoor swimming at most centres, and visits to the gym.

The centres will continue to operate in line with government safety guidelines and those planning to visit will still be required to book and pay online, to ensure contact is minimised at each centre and allowing for the track and trace process to be implemented.

Gym users will be asked to arrive ready to work out, and swimmers with their costumes under their clothes, ready to go.  These measures, combined with meticulous cleaning routines, are designed to keep customers safe and offer complete confidence to use the facilities and classes when they return to the centre.

Anthony Cawley, Director of Operations at Fusion, said,"It feels wonderful to finally be able to reopen our centres again.  We know the communities local to our facilities can't wait to kick-start their favourite fitness regimes and our team/s across the borough can't wait to welcome them back. We've worked hard over the past months to ensure our centres continue to offer the very best facilities and that our customers can return with confidence and safety."

All centres will be open daily, but please refer to the individual centre's websites for opening hours.  Bookings can be made up to seven days in advance, via download of the Fusion Lifestyle app or visit to register and use the booking facility.
