During the Covid-19 pandemic, as Quebec enters a red zone alert and initiates a state of lockdown, gyms and other such fitness facilities are subject to the same forced closures as public venues and non-essential business. However, one could argue that these facilities are in fact an essential service as they provide a boost in mental and emotional well-being. Above all else, it's important to note the scientifically proven increase to ones immune system and overall health achieved through cardiovascular and resistance training. One could easily make the case that during a health pandemic, reinforcing our bodies and minds is the greatest gift we can give ourselves.

During the past few months, while gyms/fitness facilities were open, the preventative measures implemented were very satisfactory to keep staff and guests alike safe and healthy. Gym guidelines had been clearly communicated and were being respected. (Guidelines: 2 meter distancing, masks in common areas, disinfect equipment after use, maximum capacity per area, etc). With these measures in place, it shouldn't pose no more a risk to frequent a gym than to visit other establishments that have the ability to stay open.
