PureGym Shows What They Will Look Like For Re-Opening
With gyms set to reopen in the not-too-distant future, PureGym has released a video to prepare members for the changes they can expect to see when it's back up and running.
Although there is no guidance as to an actual date just yet - this is expected to come this week - it looks like PureGym has prepared for the 'new normal' that we are hearing so much about.
The video above was shared on Facebook, with the caption: "We're not open yet, but we're ready! At PureGym, we've always put our members first. That's why we're committed to providing you with a cleaner, safer place to train and you'll still find everything you need for a great workout.
"When the government confirms we can reopen our gyms, we'll be ready to welcome you back in the gym.
"We'll be in touch with all of our members when our gyms start to reopen, but for now, take a look at what you can expect when you return."
The video explains the social distancing measures that will be taken in gyms to make sure people stay safe while they work out.

Included in the new steps taken are extensive and frequent cleaning of all equipment and machines by staff.
As we've seen in supermarkets and the like, stickers on the floor will give people a guide as to how close the can stand while queuing to get in. They will also indicate one way systems put in place.
Something that should've been brought in years ago are boxes on the floor to stop people getting too close while you are using equipment or taking part in classes.
The video also shows that treadmills and exercise bikes will only be available for use on every other machine.
Gym opening hours will be temporarily reduced while the classes will be running on a smaller schedule. Gym-goers will be encouraged to plan their visit around busy times and to check the app for the capacity, as well as new opening hours.
If you're planning on joining the gym though, you will have to wait until they have opened up again. The gym confirmed that they have not been accepting new members during the pandemic, but will open up to new members 'shortly after' they get the go ahead to reopen from the government.
All gyms were closed in the UK in March in a bid to slow down the spread of Covid-19.
