Premier, please work with the Fitness Industry to get Fitness Facilities open COVID Safe as a priority - it can be done; it’s been done with great success in Queensland, New South Wales and many countries overseas. 
 
FITNESS FACILITIES are an essential service for the community and they are urgently needed.
 
The Victorian Premier’s roadmap to recovery fails to recognise that fitness facilities are critical to the mental and physical wellbeing of the Victorian Community, at a time when the community is suffering from lockdown fatigue and needs to get back to their health and wellbeing routines.
 
Fitness Facilities will be amongst the last to open -  their 40,000 health professionals are all eager to help the community recover from 7+ months of lockdown fatigue. 
 
Nothing compares to the in-facility experience - professionally led, maximum work rates, terrific sense of community to overcome loneliness, sense of normality, all leading to an optimised immune system.
 
The HIGH RISK classification is flawed - it has no factual basis and the Government has been unwilling to engage with the Industry to share information and collaborate properly on a safe sensible opening strategy.
 
FITNESS FACILTIIES ARE COVID SAFE!
