I am vex not gonna lie.. I somewhat understand that opening a gym is more risky than opening a pub due to it being easier for body fluids to exchange.. but I am disappointing tbh.

Gyms and sport centres offer a whole host of equipment and facilities that most people do not have access to. Something that has been made worse by home gym and fitness equipment being extremely difficult to source over the last three months.

Gym and sports centre memberships aren't that expensive to adults. Although I'm sure anyone still reliant on pocket money from their parents would consider them overpriced.

I agree that they should be opening with restrictions. As should open air swimming pools. You can track and trace with memberships.

Pub re-opening should have been midweek.

The point was you can easily exercise without a high tech erg or what not.

You don't need a gym in order to not be fat. People have managed for hundreds of years to do so without them: you should be able to manage for a few weeks.

They will open eventually. Things are reopening gradually and with caution to help us slowly get back to normal. If we rush it, it won't end well. You've lasted this long without a gym, a few more weeks/months won't kill you. In the meantime, make use of local parks to exercise in or exercise at home. IT may not be as good as a gym, but it's better than not exercising at all.

Honestly, given what we’ve seen with these protests the last few weeks we may as well just open everything. In fact, actually encourage people to lick tables clean. That’s how far away from a lockdown we’ve come.

I agree, but they are an employer and probably worth millions in the economy, so should be able to open if they can achieve social distancing. Easier for them and especially to track and trace than with pubs.

Equally if we had adopted the Belgian approach that travel to exercise or relax had to be on foot or cycle, more people would have exercise instead of sitting in cars travelling to test their eyesight or crowd beaches.
