    Default Soooo how busy is yr gym?

    I reopened mine June 1 due to the prior lockdown and its never been slower

    The stat I heard was 60% of members of facilities are not coming back which will spell doom for many gyms, luckily I carry no biz debt and have only minimal personal living expenses so I just may survive, OTOH my local market here my competition will be hard pressed to keep open thusly correcting the market

    But for now its a ghost town! If yr a loner you would LOVE my gym as many times yr the only one here

    So how about the rest of you? Are people leery of coming back w the virus? BTW I spent a good amt of cash on sanitation procedures, mask here are optional

    I own a gym in NY so I am still shutdown. It's unbelievable actually. Don't even get me started.
    Luckily my business is in a very, very affluent area and we do a ton of personal training. Im fact its over 65% of my revenue. I've been lucky enough to keep my business going by training on the down low. My gym is in a unique building off of a main road so I have been having clients park in the back and come in side door. Its fucking ridiculous that I have to do it this way. I feel like I live in Russia.

    My schedule is booked solid and I have a few other trainers doing some work as well but im busting my ass more then I have when I opened 16 years ago.

    I intend on doing this as long as i don't get shutdown. I am a part of a class action lawsuit that will be decided on August 20th. There is no reason to keep us shutdown so im hopeful we will get to open.

    However, my business model will be changing to a more exclusive training facility rather then a membership based club. Luckily my gym is in an area that will be able to do this. Most clubs in my area are closing or will likely close which will give my club a larger share of the local market. Its totally saturated anyway.

    Good luck to you.

    Yes Ive seen yr Gov on tv, the guy is clueless isnt he? ANd the other gym owner from NJ who got shut down and eventually arrested, what a police state that must be?? My state isnt too far behind.....

    Glad yr up and running even on the sly,good for you. I am in a very bad market, in the cornfields, a rural area where 40K is good income so my PT biz is all but shot.

    My facility is a smaller 7500 sq foot hard core gym and it seems that hard core is always tougher to make it in these days

    ANd good luck to you too Sir!!

    I have a few friends in the USA who own gyms and they say business is about 1/3rd of what it was before this 'pandemic'

    Its terrible. These fucking commie governors have to go. Im surrounded by a shit load of rich fucking liberals. I have to lie through my teeth everyday about my political beliefs because if they knew they'd boycott me and my gym. So much for liberals being tolerant of other people's views...fucking hypocrites!

    I understand that we have to be safe, but IMO this is all a political stunt to try and beat Trump. We have to keep the lib-tards out.

    Something for you people in the USA to think about is who will be BIDENS running mate. There's a good possibility that that person could end up being your president.

    Ive always thought his VP will in fact be the next Pres, its pretty obvious Bidens mental state will prohibit him from finishing his term should the unspeakable happen and hes gets elected

    I'm not knocking Mr. Biden by no means, but something people should take into consideration. The fact is he's just not as mentally sharp as he was when he was VP years back.

    Same for me in Tennessee. Our gym seems to be about normal...no masks...classes are running.

    Follow iansmithfitness on Instagram. He runs the gym in Jersey that is fighting the Governor. They are facing fines of $15k a day, I think.
