Gyms - Are you going back?

Now that the gyms are open again, I had to make a big decision: Go back or be safe.

I read everything that Virgin Active sent me and decided to go back since I got so flabby over the last couple of months.

But man. People aren’t following the rules at my gym and there’s no supervision. Not sure if I should go back. I contacted Virgin Active and they actually replied quite quickly so hopefully they’ll do something about it.

Will you be going back to the gym?

I voted thinking of it, even though I don’t go out to a public gym. I have my own. I’ve barely touched it this year…

I need to get back at it.

Hopefully I’ll get back to running. I also just do calisthenics at home.

I’ll go back when I get back to the UK.
Had a cool basic gym there that included swimming lessons for the kids.
The actual gym is small, but has 2 pools - one Olympic size and a smaller one for kids. Both heated. There is also various courts I’ve never looked into

Im very close to going back, I honestly feel the worst of the pandemic is over.

I just don’t want to sign up and then they close a month later so Im just hanging on.

I have a friend who has a home gym setup but its not the same hardcore kind of awesome workout that the gym affords. Still better than doing push ups at home! * that voken sucks

I will go back since I use the gym mainly to swim and I desperately need that for my lower back. :weary:

However, going back to training on the actual gym floor and using equipment that is being touched by hundreds of other people is something that I am still deciding on. :thinking:

I went to the gym two days this week. Wanted to do 3 but I can barely move now. So sore.

The owner of the club contacted me and said they will enforce the rules more which is good. Will see if it happens. I hate complaining but this is a serious matter.

Overdid it a bit. Can’t believe how much it affected me.

Will take it a bit easier next week.

Something I’ve always struggled with. It’s doing fine, but I think I could benefit from going to a physio/chiro but ain’t nobody got time or money for that. Must actually see if my insurance covers it or wait till it flares up again and pay the casualty a visit >_<

I’m counting the ice rink as a gym. They opened Friday, been twice already.

I can’t walk. Took it mostly easy. Pushed myself a little a few times, stopped when it felt I might pop my knee again.

Also managed to convince some kid Canada didn’t have naturally occurring ice until 1953.

Nah, he’s one of those “tries so hard to be liked, no one likes him” kinds. He said something about “when they started building ice rinks in Canada around 70 years ago”. Of course I’m going to screw with him.
