My gym is reopening next weekend. They’ve got stringent social distancing measures in place and they’re really looking forward to welcoming me back (or so they say in their email).
But it doesn’t matter how much hand sanitiser is available – I won’t be going back. I’m not the only Australian defecting from the gym. A survey of gym goers around the world by US-based athletic shoe review site RunRepeatfound that 41% of gym members are considering cancelling their gym memberships or have done so already.
