If you are using the gym you can bring coats and small bags, but you will need to carry everything with you and place it next to the item of equipment you are using. This is to prevent trip hazards and reduce the risk of cross-contamination. If you are coming to enjoy a class, you will be able to place coats and small valuables (phones, keys) to the side of the room before you begin.
