    Default Are you guys going back to the gym?

    Just curious about how many of you guys are actually going back to the gym?

    I have a few things at home so I can workout but I will be purchasing a squat rack if things are not relatively normal in the next few months. I do work in a gym but I have moved most of my business online just in case.

    Probably not. Summer time I love to do outdoor cardio / running / biking / stairs so that eats up a lot of my time regardless of a pandemic. We also picked up a bench and free weights and can do a fair bit with that. I am excited to go back to the gym but also not in a huge rush right away. Maybe mid to late July once things settle.

    No, as I have a full home gym now.

    But my wife and I won't open our yoga studio back up until there is a little more certainty. Projecting August for re open.

    Absolutely, went Monday, going today and tomorrow. Missed Tuesday because day drunk, missed Wednesday because consequences for Tuesday.

    I can't wait for the gym to open again and will go as soon as they do. I've been doing cardio at home, which has been great but I've really been missing lifting. Goodlife seems to be setting up some pretty good measures to limit capacity as well as increased cleaning.

    The gym I go to is opening up in a block format so you are only able to train with a certain group @ certain times. I will be going for sure.

    Any word on how GYMVMT is re-opening? I can't find anything online, and would love to hit the bench on Friday. Edgemont location specifically.

    Will probably get back to it soon.

    I heard today GoodLife in Eau Claire won't be opening again. I wonder if other gyms will bite the dust too.

    They are definitely taking a lot of precautions. I will find out monday when we are opening but im assuming 1 more week. Still cant believe golds opened with no protocols except 100 capacity and a line up outside. I would not want to work at that place tbh they give no f's. I dont trust peoples hygiene quite yet lol.

    100% going back. Had something put together in my garage but much prefer actually going to the gym.

    I'll be going the first day it opens - looks like June 12 for Anytime Fitness. We have an exercise bike at home but it's not enough, and we only have really light weights.

    Throughout the entire quarantine, I did not see one single person following the 'rules' properly or using their PPE properly, so realistically it barely even matters. We have already experienced what happens with virtually nobody following the rules (aside from not going out much because everything was closed anyway), so nothing will really change if you start going back to the gym. No different than going to the store or anything else really IMO.

    About half of my office is back too, and to nobody's surprise, none of the rules are being followed (according to HR's numerous emails) and people I've talked to who are already back say that it's just like normal - people are having conference calls in offices, the same people who never washed their hands still aren't, the building ordered a ton of PPE but isn't providing any education on how to use it, etc. It's all just safety theater.

    Everyone will have a different outlook and comfort level on this but in my mind it's exactly the same as pre-quarantine, so I'm eager to get back at it.

    ^ I got a couple of emails from them saying they were targeting the 29th with new protocols. You have to book an hour segment to go in. After every hour they will spend 30 mins cleaning. No showers, sauna, pool. Can book your time up to a week in advance.

    Yes, because I work part time in a gym. I want to go back for my own workout and mental health. Secondly, if I don't choose to go back when they reopen I may risk not being recalled for work again ever.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    A friend of ours works at Goodlife and he's planning to go back at the end of the month. This is hardly official but it sounds like people will have to book timeslots to go, be pre-changed before showing up to the gym and they'll do rotations of opening the gym for 1hr, closed for 30 minutes to deep-clean...all day every day.
