Gym Reopens After COVID-19 Lockdown and Assigns Individual Exercise Pods to Each Customer

A gym in Redondo Beach, Los Angeles is reopening post-COVID-19, but it won’t look the same as it once did before the lockdown. Inspire South Bay Fitness has received a Coronavirus-preventing “make-over” and now requires its clients to sanitize their hands, have their temperature taken, sign a waiver, and be assigned to an individual “exercise pod.”

The pods, which have their own dumbbells and other equipment inside, took three days to build using clear, plastic shower curtains and pipes. According to Peet Sapsin, the gym’s owner, it’s a lower-cost alternative to installing Plexiglas dividers.



Personal trainers will be required to wear face masks and maintain 6 feet away from their clients. There will be sanitizer and wipes available on exercise machines and users will be required to clean the equipment after each use. The gym itself as well as group training classes will be limited in capacity.
