FitBizWeekly would like to hear from you! How is your facility adapting to the new “normal”?

new normal for gyms

With the Covid-19 global outbreak, physical distancing in public spaces has become the new “normal”. As fitness clubs begin to open across Canada, staff are working hard to accommodate their spaces to reflect these new circumstances. While provincial protocols vary, it is clear that these conditions have been established with the same intent: protecting the public.


From online social platforms to community initiatives, we have certainly seen the benefit of communities coming together to discover innovative ways of approaching these new safety standards. We believe it is important to continue with this momentum and demonstrate the commitment the fitness industry is making to keep members and staff safe.


Send us a photo and a short caption (50-100 words) describing an initiative your facility has implemented. This might include new signage, floor decals, equipment spacing, protective barriers, check-in procedures, cleaning stations or other creative solutions put in place.


We’ll compile the submissions and post up at


Please send your photo and caption to by Friday, June 8.
