The Rise from Lockdown

The Rise from Lockdown

The closure of fitness facilities around the world brought troubling times for gym owners and managers, but the light is now glimmering at the end of the COVID tunnel. Lockdown has put life on hold, but it has also given us the time to reflect on our fitness ventures. Thankfully, we have still been permitted to take regular exercise outdoors to protect our physical and mental wellbeing, and we have had access to a wealth of amazing online workouts and advice on how to stay fit and healthy. Many of us have rekindled our relationship with outdoor exercise, such as walking, running and cycling, and taken to the parks for some HIIT al fresco. 

At CYC, we have seen how creativity and determination, with innovative, compact kit and the smallest of spaces, have given rise to impressive home gyms for PTs and fitness enthusiasts to keep training. Though it has been challenging, we have continued to advise and distribute supplies to keep the fitness wheel turning. As we ease out of lockdown, and back into commercial facilities, we are all wondering what post-pandemic communal fitness will be like, and how we will meet stringent government guidelines. It is an anxious time to prepare ourselves and our clients for the return to the gym. To allay some of those concerns, we have compiled a list of practical pointers that we hope you’ll find useful:
