Michigan Gyms Finally Opening Back Up This Week
As of right now, gyms and fitness centers will be allowed to open back up this week. This is the moment I've been waiting for since back in March when gyms were forced to close because of the coronavirus pandemic.
I'm just hoping they stay open and aren't forced to close again. That is something Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was pushing for. She was hoping to keep gyms closed as Michigan continues to monitor coronavirus cases. A federal judge in Detroit rejected that request.
According to ABC12, that federal judge ruled on Friday that Whitmer had the authority to close indoor gyms and fitness centers earlier. But now that other businesses are allowed to reopen, keeping gyms closed is arbitrary.
Do I plan on going back to my gym? Hell yes, I'm desperately in need of physical activity especially after gaining 10 pounds during the quarantine. I haven't exercised since mid-March and it's killing me. Yes, I could have gone running or whatever during the past few months but I'm the kind of person that has to physically go to the gym or I won't work out.
I'm very confident that my gym will do everything in their power to keep things as clean as humanly possible. I go to the gym between 4-4:30 am and sometimes I'm literally the only person in there so I don't have too many concerns about socially distancing.
