We all know that the recent epidemic has hit us hard and every sector is taking the hit, even anticipating it for the coming of days. We cannot pinpoint that there has not been a hard-hitting, ground shattering experience for everyone because we have all been suffering through the epidemic which is spreading at an alarming rate. But the one thing that is happening for sure is that the healthcare sector is facing the burns and for the recently called out Unlock 3.0 by our government, we can see a slight improvement. But, would you be safe for you to attend the gym in the given condition now?

High contaminated surfaces are mostly on the equipment you use

The spread of this coronavirus could make even the most fervent gym rats stress out about picking up barbells.  There is a lower risk of picking up the coronavirus in a fitness center or health club than Said Dr. David Thomas Medicine and director of the Section of Infectious Diseases at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.  By comparison, may include shaking hands and being closer to people.  But if you are in a neighborhood in which there have been instances of the Coronavirus, “that’s, maybe, a time to be cautious with all types of exposures, including a gym,” Dr. Thomas said.  Sweat cannot transmit the virus but surfaces, such as barbells, could pose a problem, he said.

Now that gyms are reopening, we need to have proper caution whilst still maintaining social distance with our peers. Understanding how it works and how the work goes, we have to know for an instance that the coronavirus spike can stay on metals for a longer period. This surely can be hard since, at the gym, you will be handling the user types of equipment.

The sector has seen a downfall but a home gym is always an option

The effects of the pandemic continue and are rising with a potential curve. With the country being under lockdown for quite a while now without clarity regarding when we are going to be able to start our normal routine again.

The catastrophe has hit the gyms hard. Though everybody is bearing the brunt of what the planet is moving through, however, the situation is more worrisome for small players as they don’t have the funds to go electronic and spend big on digital advertisements.  Big brands or established fitness studios are thinking up unique initiatives to be sure their consumers stay healthy within their homes. They are launching online training sessions, a mixture of both live and pre-recorded classes, where fitness center members have been educated on how best to carry out their workouts in your home, without or with particular equipment. They have also been putting more in their electronic advertising and advertising budget to make workouts from home possible.

Social media influencers are blooming

Fitness coaches are still now holding live PE sessions on YouTube and Instagram.  This is helping several influencers with involvement they rely on monetization which makes it a smart move all around. For influencers who previously concentrated on gym-based, there is a chance to concentrate on the habits of customers, and also to branch out to articles that focus on health and well-being when everybody is scared due to the spread of the virus.
