THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND BEFORE GOING TO THE GYM
1. Evaluate your health
If you are feeling unwell or fatigued, avoid going to the gym. Since the chances of you getting infected in such confined places are higher, you might want to stay at home if you are not feeling upto the mark.
2. Sharing is not caring
Brace yourself for the new normal and avoid sharing your equipment with others. Make sure you sanitise the treadmill, dumb-bells, and cycling machines after every single use. Avoid using foam rollers and exercise balls.
3. Carry your own supplies
Carry your water bottles, yoga mats, masks, sanitisers, and disinfectant wipes before leaving for the gym. Carrying your own gear and using them effectively will mitigate the risk of cross-contamination. Avoid wearing a mask while working out as it can increase your heart rate and make it difficult for you to breathe.
4. Practice social distancing
Maintaining a distance of at least six feet apart from others is the need of the hour. The pandemic is still lurking around, hence you must do everything to minimise your risk of getting infected.
5. Avoid rush hours
Call ahead before going to the gym and access all the information about the opening and the closing hours.Avoid peak hours to alleviate risk. Make sure that your gym has taken all the necessary steps like creating markings to ensure distance and is taking body temperature before admission.
