Well, guess I'll be taking a small loan out to get a little more exercise equipment such as a functional cable trainer and do my own private business. -___-

2020 has really screwed the pooch with gyms and fitness centers. But people seem to be more willing to meet 1-on-1 as long as it's not packed. Good thing I already came up with a fitness LLC.

It is sort of ironic that two of the hardest hit businesses are fitness and bars. Frequently considered on different ends of the spectrum.

Gyms in my area are staying open against orders at 25% capacity. I'd rather go to a gym with restricted capacity then a grocery store that is packed to the gills.

We are at 75% b/c our governor isn't rolling back anything. But I'd rather the gyms be at 50% and still be open than closed entirely. I'm of the mindset people need to maintain a level of fitness to remain healthy during this pandemic. However, that's a discussion for a different thread.

I agree. Honestly I have never seen my gym above 50% and at the hours I usually go 10 people is a lot.

Apparently we've never come close to 75% capacity. But, frankly, even at 50% it's way too crowded for my taste.

i've hated going to busy grocery stores before it was cool!

in my area, saturday night an hour before close seems to be the best time. last time, i checked the hours as i walked in, it was so deserted i thought they closed early!

I would go after the gym, there was one a block away. Pretty quiet at 6am. I hate crowded stores.

DAMD, I spent over a dozen years as a member of the US Army, Infantry, and never stepped inside of a gym. I wonder how we stayed in shape -
