Wearing a mask is compulsory up to the gym

Le port du masque est obligatoire jusqu’au gym

SAGUENAY | wearing a mask mandatory affects all areas of the economy, but what is it to the training rooms?

Go to a gym is different since a few weeks. The main element is the addition of a mask mandatory. Customers must bring in travel between their exercises and can remove it once at their station. The owners and managers interviewed in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean confirmed that the deposit is respected by clients and can even be more than they thought it would.

The clients we work with adhere to the instructions as they wish to be able to continue their workouts in the coming weeks. For some, the addition of the mask to reassure them. A client that VAT News has encountered is back at the gym since the requirement of wearing a mask because she finds the situation more safe.

The ways are different. All equipment are disinfected regularly, and the group classes are designed to ensure the regulation distance of two meters.

Some gyms have even been ingenious. This is the case of the branch Energy Cardio of the borough of Jonquière, in the Saguenay, which has created separating walls between some of the devices to allow guests to exercise safely.

Despite the measures put in place, all clients of the gyms encountered have kept their subscription. They wish to continue to practice despite the pandemic.
