Is It Safe to Join the Gyms That Are Open Now?

After thorough analysis, experts agree it’s not only safe to return to the gym, it’s also important. Studies show that lack of exercise and isolation are detrimental to our mental and physical health. However, it’s important to follow the guidelines outlined by health experts to join the gym safely.

Unfortunately, despite mandates and restrictions, some gyms are cutting corners on safety to save money. Whether they’re skimping on staff and sanitization or allowing too many people at once, some 24 hour fitness studios and big chains aren’t adhering to protocols unless they get caught. Luckily, there are ways to avoid winding up at one of those gyms! Here are safety steps you can take and the safety steps Sweat440 takes for you.
