Well, maybe this is the solution for my gym in Dorval to use?

A gym in California has reopened with workout pods to keep those excercising safe and help curb the spread of coronavirus

As well as taking basic precautions such as using hand sanitizer and having their temperatures when patrons enter the gym, South Bay Fitness in Redondo Beach will assign each gym goer their own pod, with its own dumbbells and other equipment inside.

The pods, which took three days to install, use using shower curtains and pipes – which are far cheaper than using perspex. A California gym has come up with a novel idea of keeping people apart

‘It’s been really tough, we weren’t sure if we were gonna be able to reopen again,’ gym owner Peet Sapsin said. ‘But because now that we’ve come up with this solution, it’s a lot more affordable and, now, we can reopen back up a little more safer and healthier for our clients.’ 

Gyms across California had been shut for more than three months as the coronavirus continued to spread but now the state has released guidelines for disinfecting and social distancing  to help fitness centers reopen.

The gym has also had to introduce other social distancing rules including a maximum of just nine people working out at one time – about half the normal capacity. 

Those wanting to attend the gym will also have to make appointments in order to control the numbers of people using the facility at one time.
