Gyms to be opened by end of June

Gyms to be reopened and social distancing to be used. Maximum people in at one time depending on the size of the gym, this could be done by booking in time slots therefore giving people a chance . Cleaning down gym equipment after use would essential.

Why the contribution is important

My idea is Important so that people can get the maximum chance exercise in a normal environment. As gym goer it’s is difficult to get the motivation when I am stuck in doors not everyone has space inside or a garden. Also it’s just as important for mental health as it is physical health.

    No, we are not in anyway ready for this.

    I don't think this is a workable idea David. It's a respiratory virus meaning spread by breath and people breathe heavily in gyms as you know. Wiping down equipment would only have a limited effect as the virus can exist in the air after someone has left the gym.

    Bad idea. Breeding ground for infection.

    We should get the whole economy reopened

    The world is your gym! Run, invest in a bike or weights - dropping a gym subscription for a few months would go a long way towards some equipment of your own. The idea here across the board is to be creative, not just return to exactly what we did before

    I'm all for a massive reduction in the current madness that is lockdown (result of a Government that doesn't trust its people; look at Sweden), but I think gyms should be about the last place to re-open. Pretty much every cold/flu I've had in recent years I'm convinced I got at the gym. Lots of people breathing hard, sharing shower areas etc etc. Best place ever to pass infections (apart from maybe a brothel).

    Miss the gym very much in this time, and agree it is vital for mental health. Maybe methods can be found to implement strong social distancing, lots of disinfecting, and low number of people in at a time.
