Gym reopen in Gurugram

  • | Wednesday | 16th June, 2021

After continuous decline of covid cases in Haryana Govt, has allowed gum to open with 50% capacity and for a short period of time.

Gyms have been allowed to operate from 6am to 8pm with 50% capacity from this week.

They will have to adopt requisite social distancing, regular sanitization and other COVID-appropriate behavioural norms. While most gyms in Gurgaon are still planning their reopening, a few opened on the first day.

Among the few gyms that reopened on Monday was Fab Fit Gym. Urmimala Baruah, a personal trainer from the gym, shares, “The gym has reopened after a long time. Though people will take time to return, we know our customers will eventually come back. The last time when unlock happened, it took a while for our business to pick up and as it was getting back to normal, the second wave hit us. We have incurred losses but are hoping people will come back.”

Anubhav Rai, Founder BOMISO Gym, shares, “We have come with a new concept.

It is an outdoor training concept with equipment, and we have been getting queries from our members about the reopening.

We will reopen on Wednesday since we are getting sanitisation and deep cleaning services done in our gym before reopening.”

While gym owners are expecting their clients to return, gym enthusiasts stand divided. Annu Marbaniang, a gym enthusiast, who went to a gym on Monday, shares, “I was comfortable on the first day because proper precautions were taken and social distancing was in practice. I think people can return as long as they follow the guidelines. People can wait and return by next week.”

Arjun Ranjan, a resident of Sector 52, adds, “I am still not sure of returning. In the lockdown, I changed my workout completely so that I don’t need to hit the gym to keep myself healthy.”

Apart from following a strict sanitisation policy, gym owners are also asking people to book slots in advance. “We know our customers will eventually come back but that can take a while.

I would suggest that people should opt for gyms that are spacious and book your slots before coming in. We are also not letting our clients take showers in the gym and encourage them to use their own water bottles and towels,” says Ashishh Gupta, Director, Gold’s Gym, Gurgaon.

Urmi also agrees with Ashishh and adds, “Along with booking slots, we can only reopen with 50% capacity currently as per the government order.”
