Good News For Gym Rats March 6, 2020

Posted by nrhatch in Exercise & Fitness, Health & Wellness.

If you like to exercise at the gym . . . don’t let fears about the coronavirus stop you:

Should You Avoid The Gym During the Coronavirus Outbreak?

But do make sure that your gym is following approved sanitation protocols.

And, if you are sick, stay home!

Aah . . . that’s better!


1. Jill Weatherholt - March 6, 2020

I have a home gym, so I’m good.πŸ˜‰

nrhatch - March 6, 2020

Good! Exercise is good for our immunity system (and all the other complex and integrated bodily functions).

Hope all went well for you this week with your prep & exam.

Jill Weatherholt - March 6, 2020

Thanks, Nancy. A few suspicious spots were biopsied…waiting for the results.

nrhatch - March 7, 2020

Fingers crossed for you, Jill.

Protocols are in place for yoga studios too. Wish I’d bought shares in Proctor and Gamble πŸ˜‰

I bet no one is cleaning/sanitizing/policing our neighborhood’s fitness room. Gives me cause for pause. 😯

Do people in your studio bring their own equipment (blocks, mat, etc.) for the most part?

Val Boyko - March 7, 2020

We’ve asked them to bring their own blankets. The blocks and props get sprayed down after each class. I also have my purell ready to spring into action when I can’t get to wash my hands….

Good plan!

Thanks for that info Nancy. We do go to the gym but we just use their hand wash facilities on the way in and on the way out. Fingers crossed that is enough!

nrhatch - March 6, 2020

As long as you don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth before sanitizing your hands, and stay clear of any “spray” from coughs and sneezes, you should be (and stay) in good shape!

I better not take a chance; no gym for me.

nrhatch - March 6, 2020

That’s a prudent decision, AR! πŸ˜‰

5. anotherday2paradise - March 6, 2020

Our gym is well sanitized and there are wipes available to wipe off machines and screens after use. I’ve noticed it hasn’t been as busy as usual which is nice. πŸ˜ƒ

nrhatch - March 7, 2020

That is nice! Enjoy the extra space.

6. Kate Crimmins - March 7, 2020

Since I’m a germaphobe, my normal routine will work for this (or most other) viruses. My gym does have hand sanitizers and sprays available for anyone who is a tad more neurotic.

nrhatch - March 7, 2020

Stay well.
Stay warm.

Enjoy the weekend!

7. L. Marie - March 9, 2020

Good points!!!!

nrhatch - March 9, 2020

Stay well!

L. Marie - March 10, 2020

A friend told me her personal trainer canceled all further classes. 😞

nrhatch - March 10, 2020

Wow! That’s a bit shocking. 😯
