Group Training

With gyms, closed future training would be done in small groups or one-to-one virtual sessions. The small group of fitness enthusiasts could easily fit in a limited space while maintaining a minimum distance of 6 m apart from each person.

Instagram Live Fitness

Turn your bedroom into your workout studio and use the social app Instagram to learn from your favorite trainer on Instagram live fitness video sessions. Many instructors publish their one week timetable for their live workouts class. Take advantage of the technology and try out some new workouts or maybe a modified workout from all over the globe.

Gyms Re-Open Expectation

It will be a while before you see gyms opening again. As soon as gyms start to open, it wouldn’t be the same to walk into the gym main door and start using your favorite exercise machine. There will be a temperature sensor to read your body temperature at the entrance, no changing rooms or showers, regular sanitizing the equipment after one user uses it, and fewer machines to use for fitness.
