-- Gyms in my area we're already on the precipice even before all this COVID business. In fact, two of the city's major players closed their doors permanently -- Steve Nash Fitness and Vancouver Island Fitness (ref >>> V.I. Fitness Chain Implodes) Gyms are a fickle business and being a former gym owner my self I can tell you . . . it sucked! There's many reasons it sucked that I won't get into now, but let me tell you the day I rid myself of the burden and became a regular gym customer, lemme just say, it was a very joyous day.
As the financial grip tightens I expect many more gyms will close their doors. I know many of my acquaintances have taken to assembling their very own in-home or backyard gyms and won't be going back. I myself belong to a rec. center that will likely never go out of business but as of yet there's absolutely no word of when the doors will open back up. Am I bothered? No really. It's just made more time available for other hobbies I enjoy. Right now I just bide my time and wait patiently for the rec. center to open back up and then I'll return . . . weak as a lamb of course
