With Pubs reopening in July, why are Gyms being left closed? Gyms are easily controlled areas, that are extremely hygiene conscious. During a pandemic where the majority of  people who have died had underlying health issues, opening pubs before gyms borders on national neglect. For the good of the nations Physical & Mental health, gyms should be a priority not an issue. With the majority of business opening again in July, forcing gyms to remain closed with no added financial help could see a number of gyms, especially small independent gyms close their doors for good. We can certainly control sober people in a gym better than trying to control drunk people in a pub. 

With Scotland's increasing health problems including, mental health issues, Obesity, Drug and Alcohol abuse, Suicides, Heart Disease, the list goes on, we need to make opening and saving gyms a priority. We are the answer not the problem to a lot of this countries health, fitness and wellbeing issues.

Thanks for your support. x
