Tracy Jennings-Hill, owner of LiveURYoga, a 1,900-square-foot studio in Roswell, Ga., struggled with the decision to stay closed after Gov. Brian Kemp issued the go-ahead for gyms to reopen. “Gyms should be proactive right now by making sure everyone — from members to trainers and front desk staff — know what’s expected.” At the very least, gyms should follow the advice of the Centers for Disease Control, which offers guidance on reopening any kind of shared space. Many fitness facilities are also working to change class sizes, equipment setup and cleaning routines to give.

  • 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.

  • If planet fitness doesn’t open against these unlawful orders or does open and thinks we’re gonna wear masks etc then I’ll be cancelling my membership along with hundreds of my other clients. This whole thing is an election year hoax and we’re not going to tolerate it.

  • Planet is probably the most clean conscious gym I’ve ever been in and worked for. But man I’ll be honest, people are going to find other ways to stay “fit” relatively speaking-that doesn’t mean going inside a giant box working out next to who knows who, or using equipment after who knows who has used it and gotten whatever on it. especially since Summer is on the horizon. Myself included. Just being real.

  • We could do this to all the people that want to open gyms it’s not the same. You have people sweating pouring, perspiration, have the amount of germs and virus spreading the people stand in the room pouring out germs n viruses all over each other. Your contained in a room working out. They already said six feet is not even enough because if you sneeze or if you call if it spreads 12 feet or more you idiot.
    are you kidding me. Time to rethink your business has it’s time to change because the world is not the same because It cant be trusted

  • If you ain’t getting any exercise without a gym and trying your best with body weight exercising. Then most likely you’re excited to get back to the gym just to perv out or talk story. lol ��

  • Sorry..your owner says no gym privileges. You have to wait until dictator Gavin feels your worthy of that type of freedom. He owns you. You proved that to be true when you followed the orders of a tyrant governor

  • Not about cleaning! Air borne pathogens! Work at hospital know about what safe and not. Miss the gym, charge my life! Have worry if come contact virus without knowing spread family others! Rather wait be safe! If not to me say what’s safe or not. We all can make own choices

  • It’s too hard to enforce social distancing and making sure people are wearing their masks all the time.
    All that talk about keeping the gym safe is great; but in the end, it’s still not going to be safe.

  • They have the Green Light in West Virginia but have decided not to reopen in our state, despite their competitors reopening. It’s insane.

  • I love the gym. I legit workout 6 days a week, and it killed me these past few months. I plan to go back but I plan to wear 2 mask, and I plan to workout less than 40-50 mins. I also plan to only work out 3 days a week in a gym instead of 6.. The rest of my workouts I will do at home….

  • I just wanna go to the gym my physique has gotten very bad I have lost 8 lbs of muscle and I have stopped doing cardio and added 100 calories to my diet but still it’s not going to do much since I can’t workout at my gym. And the olympia was postponed to December when it takes place in September. I was also going to do a bodybuilding show this summer but now I can’t and have lost a lot of confidence and modivation

  • No thank you, people are relising that they can do all the gyming they want at home. You dont actually need a gym when you can do it for free.

  • It won’t happen earlier than you expected. There is still a good chance of Americans not wearing a mask or not following quarantine orders.

  • I love and miss the gym so much..been losing so much gain…but i know, gym currently is really contagious…maybe in the end 2020/beginning 2021 we can start heavy lifting again…now using ur own bodyweight is more safer

  • Great video Scott. I have a home gym, so of course I feel blessed, but my son trains at LA Fitness, and I know he’s going to have issues. I believe commercial gyms are finished for the next 5-10 years

  • if you need to be enlightened that gyms and massage parlors are non essential then there really in not hope for you. i never needed a gym to exercise lol.

  • Don’t get me wrong. I am not one of those who deny the existence of the virus or the complications that often come with an infection. You mentioned that bars were opened one week before and since then the numbers have been increasing rapidly. It’s not possible to come to this conclusion because the median of the incubation period is about 6 days. You also refer to the new infections of May 17th. That is really not a number you can rely on because it is only one day so it may be a statistical outlier or there may be another reason for the increase. I know what you are saying, it is only logical that the infection rate is going to increase just as we see today. It is still increasing but it has not increased a much as your statistics show in the video.

  • Now Florida has a spike of covid…. turns out doctors and scientist were correct… it’s not healthy to go to the gym or restaurants in inclosed area ������������… and nope, more people have died from corona in 6 months than a flue kills in a year I would know because…. let’s just say I’ve seen inside the the tube that are being used to be placed on ventilators…and how long? Maybe till December since monoclonal antibody therapy might be out by September, and vaccines will be out by December 2020 or January of 2021… and all depends on how many people get sick aswell, remember, can’t vaccinate all in a supply limited system, so the most vulnerable will be vaccinated first…

  • A bunch of people breathing harder then normal in one area and touching everything…I dont think there is enough manpower & ventilation for that..ill pass

  • The only thing I miss about the gym is when me and my friends get out the showers we will be naked sliding like Sub Zero all over the locker room while we listen to James Brown I feel good song

  • Doing vigorous exercise while wearing a face mask can kill you! There are many such cases of deaths! Please do not listen to those other than qualified specialist! Gym exercises, running, jogging and other sporting activities that require rapid breathing (lovemaking included) mustn’t have any oxygen intake restrictions and co2 build-up in your lungs can cause sudden deaths!

  • this video is not helpful. By the time you get to a tip relevant directly to covid19 (past telling people to listen to local govt, even though some local govts are literally lying to their populace) you mention social distancing. There’s not really any science behind “6 feet”. There’s even cases where people WERE social distanced in enclosed areas and all got the coronavirus (like the choir in washington state). I could go on further about this video, but there’s a reason you have 800k subscribers and get no views on your content.

  • Who cares about the price if you could possible get killer Corona virus from the next person huffing next to you. 6 feet is only good for people not moving you need more than just every other cardio machine unplugged.

  • Gyms ain’t going to be safe. H2O vapors from exercise can travel 65ft on a trail. What hope do we have on an enclosed space. I’ve seen the loss of gains and the long way back to homeostasis. Fu&k that. No vaccines, fit people. Stay fit. Don’t get sick.

  • From an objective point of view you don’t want to be in enclosed areas where there are people with increased respiration.
    It’s an airborne pandemic.
    All fitness should be done outside or in private.
    Adapt or die.

  • I’ve been working out in town the whole time, exposed. I can’t believe the level of wimpy behavior I’ve seen by the majority of people. Giving up personal freedom so easily too ��

  • He seems as shady as his gym. Anyone that starts every answer to every question with “yea sure” just seems like an idiot anyways.

  • Hey everyone I wrote a post with tips on how to stay safe when visiting reopened gyms!
    Check it out
    This blog is dedicated to beginner levels & just anyone who struggles with consistency. Be safe!

  • Since you posted this one month ago, cases in Florida went from 45,588 to 85,926 as of 11pm. Thats a 40,338 difference in 1 month. Florida had a 3000 new cases in 1 day today. Gyms in Florida are petri dish with the A.C. circulating that petri dish.

  • Gyms in Los Angeles have recently opened. I went back to my local gym just to see if it’s really safe. There are hand sanitizers around but far apart from the equipment, at least in my gym, so people are not willing to walk after each of their workouts to grab tissue paper with the sanitizers to wipe the equipment. And no, people do not bring their own towels or sanitizers from what I saw. I was probably one of the very few who did.

    Very few patrons are wearing gloves. Many were touching equipment as if the coronavirus never existed.

    Another issue is although they do temperature checks and require you to wear a mask, people are breathing hard and coughing, and in every set there are those who feel compelled to remove their mask and breathe as if they’re having multiple babies. It looked like an operating room without the doctors and nurses and sterile equipment. So the mask is basically useless when people are not even wearing them.

    Ultimately, I have learned that people are habitual and will continue to be immature and careless about the virus. Luckily I have invested in a home gym with 100lb dumbbells each, a pull up station with a ring suspension trainer attached, and a flat bench for less than $900 together. I will definitely cancel my membership.

  • Don’t expect Trump to be responsible for the health of the death of the American people! Because Trump itself is a selfish men who earns his own pocket and ignores the employees! Trump is a playboy, he will not experience the suffering of the people! Wake up, American people, it’s time to abandon Trump!

  • Florida is really pushing to open our economy back up, but is it too early for gyms? Going to the grocery store or out to eat is one thing. But going to a gym where you are quite literally required to touch everything (with or without gloves), even with a limited amount of people could be a recipe for disaster. It only takes one person who is infected to spread the virus.

    I think it would be super interesting to hear what all of you have to say about this. I am on the fence personally. I see all the dangers on one side, but I also see a failing economy that needs some stability. Also, if gyms do not re-open soon more and more will go out of business forever and there will be NO GYMS to go to once the economy goes back to normal.

    ( 7:11)Particle Video:

  • I used to go to the gym at least three times a week when it was open and even would schedule things around making sure I got my workout in. However, I have grown to like the chilling out I have done the last several months and have not intentions of going back to the gym.

  • These rules are so stupid to work at a gym wear a mask check your temperature make appointment only have two hours to work out this is so stupid I hope they fix this soon because I want to go back to being normal

  • at our gym we have been taking all precautions and measuring the temperatures of all of our clients coming in, we recently upgraded our temperature scanner with a automated system from so we don’t have to have someone dedicated scanning temperatures, it’s saving us a lot of time

  • Planet Illness won’t allow a customer to terminate an account except by either of two methods: send a letter of termination by certified mail or go to the club and sign a termination notice. A trip to the post office or a trip to the gym is not safe these days. But, no exceptions allowed…Thank you!

  • I don’t care what kind of equipment do people have to clean the equipment in your facility you don’t know enough about the virus cuz no one’s telling you who kills and what it does

  • My gym reopened June 1. It’s safe. It’s fine. We just expanded hours. Open 5-12, then close 2 hours to deep clean, open 2-7. Deep clean.

    Repeat. Yesterday I went from 10- 11:15. There were 12 people in there. And it’s a good sized building.

  • I think ppl need to google the “immune system”. Lol. It prevents you from getting sick just by merely coming in to close contact with a sick person. We’d be extinct as a species by now if we were that vulnerable. ����

  • Naw since planet fitness reopened. It is the same thing except the massages, lockers, and showers are closed. All the staff do it chill in the front. They only take out the trash in the morning, closing, or member complains about it. I don’t see any of them cleaning every hour on equipments after the reopenings. Easy money for them before and after COVID19!!!

  • Went in there a couple days ago to cancel my membership. I don’t feel safe enough to go in that place, I’ve gotten sick a couple times from going in that place. Not to mention that I saw patrons and employees with no masks on.

  • Trust me don’t go cause many havnt showered since march.. that’s a good idea just work out & carry all the germs & virus to your co-workers & go home..what moron decided no shower but wash your hands 20 seconds but the rest of our body was all over them machines..nobody is cleaning just 2 people behind the counter

  • Gyms are a breathing ground for the corona virus. I love going to the but have the common sence to stay away until it’s 100 percent gets a vaccine..more power from the republic of Ireland

  • He looks like a guy who would get kicked out of his own gym!! Hes too fit.. planet fitness is for fat people who ljke bagels in the weekends

  • Wether they open PF or not I don’t think it’ll make much of a difference especially since most of the people that went there already didn’t workout while in there,its no big deal

  • When I saw this I was so hyped and had big smile when I herd about news about gyms re opening i miss letting wights and I cant wait i live in California and there saying California while re open in June 12 im comfortable enough to go back i cane imagine gyms being crowded as hel

  • They need to just stop…the sanitation protocols don’t work too well when you have dozens of members panting and panting breathing everywhere….spraying Coronavirus aerosol particles by the millions throughout the gym…and gyms are filled with buckets of sweat at least every gym I have ever been in…go if you want to and risk your life or those of your loved ones… but just think of it as a nice warm petri dish which is all a gym is with this deadly virus…sorry but it’s so true….and forget the pictures of the guys in white moon suits spraying fog everywhere….you know how long that lasts?..until the first person with Coronavirus breathes on it….they may as well just buy the moon suit on Ebay and spray water with a fogmaker….oh and by the way ask watch them wipe down with the same towel after each use….you won’t go back!!

  • The main source of the corona virus’s spread, the CDC said, is through respiratory droplets from an infected person who coughs sneezes or talks in close proximity to someone else.

    “COVID-19 spreads mainly through close contact from person to person,” Haynes said. “While it may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes, this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.” CDC spokesman Benjamin Haynes

    During physical exercise the amount of exhaled water vapor is linear, but not proportional to heart rate. And so at the heart rate of 140 bpm amount of exhaled water vapor is approximately four times higher than during the rest and equals about 60-70 ml/h.

    It’s not on the surface; it’s in the exhaled water vapor that people are breathing out that has the virus.

  • People who act like gyms need to be so different now post-virus have probably not spent much time in gyms lately. They really aren’t a very social experience. People just normally work out alone or maybe with like 1 other person. People just go on their own cardio machine and then wipe it down. Or wait their turn for a weight machine, use it, then wipe it off for the next person.
    Its not a very social experience unless you attend classes at a gym.
    They can ramp up cleaning and sanitation but anything beyond that is out of their control.

  • FINALLY someone with common sense am at FITGREEK on YT I share the same concerns though I have a gym at home. I believe GYM and RESTAURANTS both have cross contamination. Seen chicks check there butt not wash their hands and leave the bathroom… same possibility in a restaurant ��

  • No amount of money could make me step my feet inside of any type of gyms.. Absolutely NOTTT. I’m actually going to cancel my LA fitness. Nahh not paying $31.99 just to go there for whenever it’s convenient… I cannot go from going to the gym everyday where I put my money to use to now at 50% capacity. Absolutely NOT.

  • I’m bout ready to join a different gym�� tried to follow along a home ‘work in’ once, video messed up after 30 seconds and I was over it. Just need equipment and headphones and I’m good to set my own pace

  • This old man lies about only paying $10 dollars a month every 2 months they take over $40 bucks from youre credit card without permission I got kids to feed I need my money

  • Damn reading through the comment section & seeing Americans buying into this new normal, is sad.After watching 1.3million people in Germany go out in the streets, peacefully protesting against this Plandemic gave me hope, that one day others will follow suit.But as for America its a sad sad situation.

  • I miss the gym. But the probability of someone forgetting to wipe down or just not being concerned seems so inherently high. Hard to trust people in general.


  • I miss the gym so bad I’ve put weight on and got so out of shape I wear a mask and gloves everywhere but I can’t figure out how to work out in a mask, I’m gonna try

  • I agree, he looks like he goes to a completely different gym to work out. I really hope that they start opening soon. 24 hours fitness leaving while planet staying is a nightmare. Here in my city a lot of the small gyms won’t be able to open again. An honest nightmare. Planet fitness is a gym for people who don’t like traditional gyms

  • One of the reasons why I moved to planet fitness, it’s clean, ppl minded their own business, customers clean up after themselves & non of my co-workers workout there. Thank god.

  • Two year member here. They have done a nice job and definitely make effort to keep their place clean. Members at the PF I go make the difference in keeping it clean.

  • The best alternative I can think of for gems and they should consider it. We’ve seen outside gyms at the beaches of Florida and California for ego lifters want to show off in front of the ladies. If you were to go to all the gyms around the nation knock out all the walls leave the roofs and ceilings the way they cover the front and back and sides depending on if it’s a strip mall or building by itself with chain-link fences unless of course the gym is going to be 24 hour. Get a nice good size fan that can blow air through all of the machines and areas it would be like an outside gym but with a Ramada. And these good-sized fans will keep the airflow through everything so even when people cough or sneeze you’re not trapped indoors with germs. Pools hot tubs and saunas that I don’t know at this time. they’re probably have to have hot tubs that drain and refill and can be quickly sanitized. But the main thing is if you have a gym that is not necessarily indoors and you have good airflow and people still wearing appropriate attire and breathing masks. But anyone watching this video to think about you knock out all the walls leave the ceiling in the roof the way it is increase the amount of fans airflow no germs being trapped indoors. sure you might have a problem with flies and insects flying in but we sweat and we itch when we’re working out so.

  • I’m going back next week 24 hours fitness opens 22 off Monday im going back to get my gains back im glad to go back and work out aging idc

  • I’d say I want to live my life and go to the gym this virus will stay with us and chances to completely avoid it are slim to none. Everyone should have the freedom to make a decision for yourself. If you are afraid to get sick stay home. We should be able to decide for ourselves.

  • This video is a bunch of misinformation, People who are going out right now and going to the gym are fucking stupid As Ron desantis is fudging the real numbers to the real corona virus cases once they’re out the economy will go into a recession:

  • These fake CEOs have zero intention of social disturbing or taking this seriously. They don’t have the room to fully distance. Listen to these vague answers. Gyms are a petri dish for Covid.

  • IDIOTS and VAIN meatheads use gyms. What fools PAY to excercise? VAIN people, you know most gums are lined with glass and mirrors so passersby can see you sweat. IF you’re running around cleaning isn’t that a work out? LOL I PAY YOU to work out in my yard. Insane waste of time and energy, and you pay? LOL suckers

  • Planet Fitness is way too crowded! Mens locker rooms are way to small! Athletes foot breeding ground!! Men walk around men’s locker room bare footed! NASTY!!!!!!!!

  • um… anything with reservations and thermal tech is a failure. Gym is not a germ free environment. People been exposed to germs/virus at the gym daily prior to covid. People will know that if they are sick, they will stay home.
