    Nope no date. going in stages, we aren't at that stage yet. I am moving and my new gym is small, with social distancing, it will be a challenge. I expect it to be only a few in at a time. luckily, I train at 5 am and usually alone at that time. Hope that doesn't change

    Keep your squats low and standards high.

    Yeah as of last night at 5pm but with only 50% occupancy.
    I have to call and figure out how that works exactly.
    Do i need an appointment like at the barber shop?

    phase 2 here in the DC area.

    My main, fully equipped gym of 25 years is open at 5am and not 4:30am, but by appointment only. 5am is too late.

    So, for the time being, just Planet Fitness which is now open 24 hours. No masks. Had to change up my workout.
    Helping one person may not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.

    I will call today( post it here) and find out what the system is; i am sure i have a long list of new rules to follow.

    I just called, a limit of 50 people and you wait outside if they are at capacity.
    No time limit that he mentioned( i watch, most people leave in 45)
    The pool sauna and all things "water" are closed.
    He does not think they will hit capacity anytime soon due to fears and caution.
    That's all he told me.

    Yes 1st day, just got back, garage door was open while we all trained, nothing new there.

    Dead lifted 430 x 2 PR for the 2nd rep (no time to record) then with a nice sore lower back squat cleaned and pressed up 175, finished with front squats 225.

    Everyone managed to at least maintain the strength they had before closing.

    Here in WA State we were one of the first states to "flatten the curve". It's been flattened for 3 months now. Tired of this political spite making the decisions in our life. Open the fckn gyms...

    i am starting back on Monday but i drove by the gym and there were.... maybe 10 cars in a parking lot that holds 75.
    To me this shows that folks are afraid and unwilling to rush back for fear of exposure to Covid 19.

    our gym was open for three weeks. I so love it. The core group is back, it is like family re-union of sorts. Some occupancy limit, but gym rarely reaches it, no masks, hand sanitizers is about only the nuisance, everything else in the gym is about same. Oh, and some machines are taped off, for “distancing”. I have a question. How can we call the distancing “social”? Distance is opposite of social, isn’t it?

    The gyms opened in my city end of May. Some limitations (masks unless 12' separation - yea, right), but they are open for regular hours.

    I have not returned to my local gym. I only went to the local gym to use some machines I don't have access to in my home gym and to use the pool/sauna.

    One down side is that Tennessee is seeing a large upswing in cases. I am happy to have my home gym where I can do everything I want. I will keep isolating and let everyone else get infected.

    None have opened in the UK yet, some have started to do group classes (outside and socially distanced), but other than that they are still closed.

    There is a possibility they may open July 4th but we shall see.

    An update from this weekends workouts during prime hours, Saturday at 10am and Sunday at 12 noon.
    People are staying away for the most part, i saw 15-20 people at a time both days and i think that folks are genuinely scared.
    You walk in masked( you can remove it) and the locker room is closed and every other cardio machine is shut off.
    They added tables with paper towels and 2 spray bottles with hospital grade chemicals; the Purell is filled at stations mounted on the walls.
    People stay 6-12 feet away from each other and just stare from afar.
    The gym has a weird vibe but you can get in and out quickly like in a fraction of your regular time.
    Lastly, 2 staffers are spraying and wiping but it is nothing like what you or i would do if we are cleaning for Covid.
    sums it up a thread will start off promising and then turn into name calling..
    The easiest way to tell when an argument has no merit is when the protagonist mixes in some personal insults.

    Mine is very similar. Noticeably less cars in front. People don't like the idea of always wearing a mask. My only choice is Planet Fitness. Takes creativity, but you can get it done. Most people do the wiping off of equipment, but there is always this one guy that uses loads of equipment and never has the courtesy of wiping anything. I want to approach him, but seems people are already jumpy and I'm not going to jail for being in a fight.

    As of this morning, we have to wear masks while working out. The mask I had made it a struggle because it is thick. Changing for next workout to the bandit-style mask that allows more air circulation.
    Helping one person may not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.

    That "people are jumpy" line really stood out to me, it is as if we all have it, and no one wants to speak or have any contact. As for the mask, i couldn't do it, lol, i would pass out the way i workout.
    Maybe by 2021 we can try to return to normal, maybe.

    I flew out to Colorado last week and trained at a really good local gym 3X. No masks. People kept a distance. I train at home when I'm here. I train legs at a gym up the street, and it's open. No masks.

    I admit that I pulled my mask so my nose was not covered. I rest less than 1 minute between sets, 45 minutes non-stop. I don't do circuit training. Never have. I am doing my own hybrid hypertrophy high volume and a mix of the Big 3 and working smaller muscles. I have lost about 15lbs, but look better.

    Nice to hear there are some good gyms doing their best to stay open and follow guidelines.

    Yeah. To me, distance is about as good as it gets. I could never train wearing a mask. Between sets, as I'm huffing and puffing, I tried to breath out into my towel. It's not foolproof, but it has to help some. in any gym, there is a lot of huffing and puffing. God knows that can't be good when you're talking about a virulent respiratory virus.

    Curious - Do you train legs at a public gym because you need more weight and various equipment to work legs that you may not have at home?

    Not in Toronto yet. We keep getting emails from my gym saying they will open when given the go ahead from the government.

    Will probably entail the same as what the other posters were saying: you have a time limit, a limit of capacity, you have to book ahead of time etc.

    Not too big of deal since I have a complete home gym I purchased 20 years ago but I still miss all the machines for fun
