Caulfield Recreation Centre re-opening

Great news, Caulfield Recreation Centre (CRC) opens Monday 16 November. In line with the State Government’s announcements there are very strict capacity limits.

Initially, CRC will open with gym sessions available in 45-minute blocks. Online bookings are essential for all visits. Bookings open three days in advance at 9am, with initial bookings opening Friday 13 November at 9am. Please arrive 5mins before your session start time. Late entries will not be allowed access to the session.

Our Group Fitness program will commence following the successful reopening of the gym. In the meantime, we will continue GEL Anywhere offering free virtual group fitness classes live-streamed with our very own instructors.

While we are only able to offer limited services, memberships will remain on suspension and a reduced entry fee of $9.95 will be charged per CRC gym session. With restrictions easing further from Monday 23 November, we plan for our services to expand and to reinstate memberships and multi-visit pass options. We will let you know when they become available. 

When you attend the facility, face masks should be worn for the duration of your visit except for when performing strenuous exercise. This is a new way of operating for the centre and we understand it is an adjustment for everyone. As always, please respect our staff and follow their directions to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable visit. 

Kind regards,
Paige Buse
Manager Glen Eira Leisure
