Gyms in Santa Clara County are on the schedule to open starting Monday July 13th. You might be wondering, what will your gym experience look like?
You may find a lot of classes and equipment outdoors as the county is urging fitness centers to do that.
Everybody needs to wear masks and stay 6 feet apart.
Gyms are not allowed to provide any indoor activities or classes that involve cardio or aerobic exercise, nothing that could cause heavy breathing or an elevated heart rate. The theory is if you get heated up, you’ll be tempted to take off your mask. No treadmills, elliptical machines, or exercise bikes.
No water fountains or vending machines and you will have to reserve a time to go to avoid crowding.
Free weights and yoga classes will be allowed.
It’s a baby step and in the words of the Grateful Dead we will get by, we will survive!
