Message from BASE dated 18th March 2020
Dear friend of BASE,
I hope you are doing well and are staying safe.
After making every effort to stay open and to continue to offer a space to stay healthy and strong during such testing times, we have made the difficult decision to close for 14 days.
This is to comply with the latest government directions to help halt the spread of COVID-19 by temporarily closing all fitness centers in Thailand.
All BASE locations will be closed for business from tomorrow, 18th March until 31st March, 2020.
We hope to open again on 1st April and will keep you updated on all developments.
All sessions booked in will be cancelled and credits returned to your account.
All packages will be extended by 14 days to account for the closure.
If you have any queries about your package or anything else, please let us know and the team will be ready and happy to help.
We are saddened by the developments, but we’re also excited by the thought of recovering quickly and bouncing back stronger.
Stay safe and strong during these times – our thoughts are with you all.
Yours in health,
Jack and the team at BASE

At BASE, your health and safety is always our number one priority.
We have been closely following the latest Thai government and WHO organization advice to ensure that we’re doing everything we can to keep BASE virus-free.
Our hygiene standards are already very high at BASE and we have recently added air purifiers across all locations which makes it harder for viruses to spread, but we have added in extra measures during this time, such as:
➜ Extra 20 minute break between all classes to allow for extra cleaning
➜ Extra gel dispensers and disinfectant sprays
➜ Self-quarantine measures for clients (see below)
➜ No exercises with high surface contact
➜ Extra deep cleaning each day
➜ No high fives or physical contact with members during this time
The restrictions detailed below have been carefully considered to keep BASE a safe and clean place. If any of these restrictions apply to you then we are very happy to freeze your package at no cost to you and for as long as you need.
If you simply feel uncomfortable to train at this time we are very happy to freeze your package – simply email us at [email protected]
