 Gyms and leisure centres are an essential service they have been made very safe and are a benefit to all ages including from children, young people to elderly. The government promised tier 3 could stay or re open and now closing. This is a mental health crisis and with most people living without private gyms !! in their own homes ! It is essential they stay open.

For a lot of people it is also important for their social health and well being as people can interact and in a healthy way and for some older people might be the only time they engage with other people and what better way than doing something to improve your health. I see many fit elderly people enjoying themselves and this is surely going to lessen their risk of being poorly and putting NHS under strain ?
For a young person this is so important for their mental well being being around others their own age and after having uni colleges etc closed no proms etc etc this has been a saving grace  for many young person with currently little prospects in their view of the future and feeling low already and will help to avert any mental health crisis as more and more young people become depressed with the impact of Covid-19, exercise release endorphins feel good hormones!! Why would the government not allow the gyms to be there as a lifeline for many ?

 

Regular gym exercise can reduce your risk of developing various medicalconditions including: diabetes, breast and colon cancer. Exercise improves blood circulation to all parts of the body and aids the removal of waste products and free radicals that can be oxidized to form dangerous chemicals and cancerous growth. Gym sessions are prescribed by GPs and the risk of diabetes and obesity is more serious with Covid-19 !

The government are telling people to go and walk around the block ! It’s dark old people are vulnerable and young people are at risk of being robbed on the streets. The gyms are a safe place to be and I feel upset when I think of the amount of different age groups I see in the gyms even over 80s enjoying their workouts.  Please keep the gyms as essential as the hospitals are and let people make their own decisions!
