  • Just get your antibody test and if you’ve built antibodies against the virus your good! Back to business, cant keep living your life in fear!

  • Healthy everyday is the Way to win even Coronavirus, Great words!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks, professionally skill in you ^^

  • Checked out the local Planet Fitness, yesterday. Disappointed they do not REQUIRE masks. One infected person huffing and puffing can infect a lot of other people. Why does this have to be a political issue?

  • Planet fitness is dead. I think I might to equinox. I think equinox might be the cleanest gym during this pandemic. it’s expensive, but it was VERY CLEAN before the pandemic.

  • Dude, with all the heavy breathing and sweating? YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND? This is EXACTLY how you contract the COVID 19 virus. They sent me a letter stating you must wearing a mask while exercising. Who the hell can get a good workout in a mask?..give it up dude. Until there’s a vaccine and effective treatment Im good with my resistance bands, spin bike and pneumonia-free lungs AT HOME.

  • Fortunately as a marathoner I do just fine running outside and x training by hiking additionally. Cases are going up here in San Antonio—the top culprits? They are saying the GYMS and BARS.

  • I’m writing from Turkey.we’re having same diffucilties,you could be sure.But work out with face shield is just a sucks.

    be honest a little bit against to ourself please and work’n out in this conditions ´s too risky and dangerous.if you also decided to work out at the gym inspite of everything, you could not managed to finish it because of damn steam on your face..

    go on to stay home..

  • I teach group fitness and If the weather permissible we take members outside. It’s almost impossible to teach with a face mask. I do see people with them on. Inside I don’t see anyone participating in wearing a mask

  • seems like a lot of these guys like this one are total pussy-like sheep. They can stay home and keep their door locked. What next Rocky spraying down the weights before he lifts?

  • I have or had a membership before the pandemic hit at a hot yoga studio. They are opening on Monday. They are saying that we will have limits in class capacity and social distancing and mask will be required to enter the studio. It would be our choice to remove our mask at our mat space. Please chime in.

  • The Bowflex and Elliptical is all I need at home for a gym. I can get all my weight lifting and cardio done for a fraction of the cost and not risk catching covid.

  • I’m going to place my membership on hold for 3 months after it re-opens. After jumping rope at home for weeks, my neighbor complained so I jumped outside (private sky lounge rooftop no one around). Afterward I got horribly sick. It was just food poisoning but I didn’t know. I felt horrible and immediately wondered if I caught it exercising outdoors. The feeling of being incapacitated sucks. I want to do all that I can to avoid it.

  • I appreciate your honesty Scott. I honestly believe if I did not see this video I would’ve started going back to the gym on Monday. Not a good idea…

  • I live in Baltimore and I want my gym to open Yesterday. I’m getting pissed. My wife would not be telling me not to go to the gym because I am a man (smack)… I mean I love my wife very much and will obey fully. Fuck man.

  • The best way to stay safe is to wrap plastic around your whole body and stay indoors. Don’t leave your house under any circumstances

  • If Planet Fitness ever got Free Weights I would join in a heart beat, but there’s just so much you can do with machines and dumbbells.


    Why have a healthy sport in an unhealthy building?

    Our Air Quality Systems create a magnetic field in the air so particles of dead skin, dust, mat fibers and hair attract together making them heavier so they fall to the floor out of harm’s way. Those particles retain the odors and bacteria you, your staff, and clientele breathe. Our systems effectively address mold, mildew, bacteria, and odors present in gyms. We oxidize the air so your facility smells sanitized so clients can breathe easy knowing you’ve taken steps to sanitize your business from top to bottom.

    They are about the size of a microwave oven, look like a speaker, plug into any 110 wall outlet, use 100 watts of electricity and operate 24/7 and do up to 18,000 square feet.



    Ask for Kevin and receive $300.00 off any system to provide a safer, healthier environment for your staff and clients.

  • Finally building the home gym up, new bench, new small rack, made a pullup bar, lat bar with a couple pullies. Waiting to get the olympic plates & barbell i want whenever they become available.

  • those who need to go to the gym, JUST FUCKING GO..Almost all of the the ones who who push the fact of people falling sick in the gym are the ones who are nothing but lazy and fat poop making machines who just sit, eat and generate poop all day so stop giving them a patient hearing. While you are at the gym keep a distance,maintain good hygiene practices,get your workout done and get the fuck out.. Covid 19 is asymptomatic and It takes one person to spread the virus even without his knowledge but again the chances of anything spreading or catching is less likely if you maintain social distancing..and dont be the IDIOT that puts the mask on while lifting weights as thats gonna create other problems..

  • Please know that our Planet Fitness location has been neglected by the owner. A. Since the doors opened, staff members are used to be “Maids” and there hasn’t been in-depth cleaning in almost a year.
    B. Chronically broken machines. C. There have been many times there wasn’t any soap or paper towels to clean the machines. D. Lockers are not cleaned inside. E. In the shower, the disabled bench remained broken for almost 8 months, and in the ladies dressing room there still isn’t proper benches to sit on.
    F. Mold on shower curtains and the bottom of the shower. G. In an area of high theft, the owner refuses to take down “The key board” and many cars have been broken into
    I have been a member since this location opened. I fell in the shower because the disabled bench wasn’t maintained, 911 was called and no one from management cared or called to see if I was Ok. Heartless.

  • All the other gyms in my city are open. PF is still not open so I will be leaving them. May 1st? It’s now almost June. Home workouts do not have weights! If I wanted to do calisthenics why the f*** would I need a gym membership?

  • Oh right. It’s bad enough going to the supermarket or the box store lumber yard for necessities and having to endure the atmosphere of fear, foreboding, and distrust of a large percentage of the clientele not to mention the staff, so I can only imagine the heightened tensions in a gym. No thanks. I only frequent establishments where the staff and clients are more distrustful of the restrictions than they are of the potential for contracting the virus. I’m all for taking necessary precautions but I just can’t imagine, with the heightened tensions that all this is causing in the public square, that the gym experience will be worth it any more.

  • I go to my gym sans-muzzle six days a week. Not afraid of the social engineering scam on any level. Pathetic how people are so easily whipped into a fear frenzy by the gov media.

  • As Shakespeare said “Much ado about nothing”. This little virus is on the same level as common cold and flu viruses; maybe a little more contagious but no more deadly. There is no evidence that anyone has ever died strictly and solely from COVID-19. It’s always accompanied with other diseases but the doctors in the U.S. are under a lot of pressure to put down COVID-19 as the cause of death because the hospitals get an extra $39,000.

  • FYI, the white mask you are showing has a exhalation valve. The internal plastic flap behind the white grille will let air pass freely as you breath out. Some countries/agencies have recommended not to use it.

  • Doctors in Northern California say they have seen more deaths from suicide than they’ve seen from the coronavirus during the pandemic.
    “The numbers are unprecedented,” Dr. Michael deBoisblanc of John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, California, told ABC 7 News about the increase of deaths by suicide, adding that he’s seen a “year’s worth of suicides” in the last four weeks alone.

  • I’m really hope that when it reopens planet fitness does the teen summer challenge this year because I’m really looking forward to join ��

  • Not smart to wear a mask while working out. Breathing in your own Carbon dioxide excessively can be poisonus. And people are nasty! I work at a gym and people dont clean, barely wash their hands after using the bathroom. People who know how to work out effectively, dont need a gym. Your body is your machine!

  • Honestly…why even go to the Gym now? Just go for a walk. Play some tennis. Jog. Gyms are VERY unsafe now and should be closed. ����

  • This is a great video and an unusual one!:Most of the videos out here are saying “go back to the gym and get healthy”! However, the biggest thing that people don’t seem to understand is that this virus is transfered person to person through the “mucus membranes” mouth, nose, and eyes! These droplets can hang in the air for 3-4 hours. You go to the gym and because of exercise you are taking bigger and deeper breathes. Therefore, you are more likely to pull the virus in your lungs! And, another false thing that gyms are telling people is that they are “wiping down” everything all the time! All they are doing is spreading the virus around hard surfaces! The Coronavirus lives on hard surfaces for up to 28 days! Lysol sprayed directly on the hard surfaces is THE ONLY THING that can “kill” this virus! And, there is another problem with that, stated on spray Lysol bottles, you can get extremely ill and or die inhaling Lysol. And, the worst thing of all is that you can have the virus for 14 days or longer and not have any symptoms! So, you can go everywhere, grocery stores, pharmacy, restaurants, gas stations, etc.and spread the virus to people with compromised immune systems who may die! Going to the gym seems like a “little bit selfish thing” to do right now! We all love to go there. It almost makes us feel “euphoric” and “righteous! However, the consequences to ourselves, our loved ones, and total strangers doesn’t seem a responsible thing at all!

  • Why are we even discussing this? Trump and the Republicans have decided on the Herd immunity scenario. There’s really not much point in continuing this discussion. The decision’s been made. Some of you will die. And you’re just going to have to deal with it. Donald J Trump

  • I absolutely hate this. I will never live in fear when I go to the gym. Cause this will never go away so once I have that mindset that I can’t touch 3 or 4 peaces of equipment when the you have to go to work or your going places and touching things that will never go away. You have to live your life

  • Is anybody else distracted by his veins popping out of his neck??? Lol..this is a great video though, I’m really conflicted on going back to the gym right now and after watching this, I think I’ll stick to my home workouts!!

  • RIP Gym. No one can be trusted to keep machines and weights clean. People are aerosolizing sweat and saliva constantly. Better to work out at home and be outside.

  • Excellent video!! if i have your home gym I would not even go no question ask lol gym are opening up in 22 days here and its winter.. i have weak immune system i dont think ill risk it either

  • I may go to the gym at 7am in the morning while there is no one.
    Gonna use the sanitizer after every exercise.
    Gonna wear the mask.
    And gonna use a antiseptic liquid spray bottle on the equipment before use.

  • All government employees should only be able to draw 50% pay with no reimbursement for lost wages. When we had total shut down they should have been at zero pay, with no reimbursement! If this had been the case they would have said stay at home if you’re at risk and self quarantine. Otherwise everyone else do what you want. Don’t create a world for us to live in and then exempt yourself from that world!

  • La Fitness is open if Florida as of three weeks ago. I’ve been going the last two weeks. Bottom Line: NOBODY is wearing a mask! I am literally the only person who wears a mask. And i don’t understand people in there running on the tread mill. Go run outside…it’s Florida! You can bet there will be a second wave…wait no…the first wave is still going on and getting worse. Cases in FLA jumped last Thursday to the highest they have ever been. It is a hot zone in the gym and no one wearing a mask. They should require a mask….or just wear one out of common courtesy.
