As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, gyms will have to deal with a "new normal". That means more caution for the security of members and employees as well.
Because lock-down measures, the fitness industry has been dramatically affected. Not just because gyms had to shut down, but also because members are less inclined to go to the gym, after months of absence. Moreover, the rules and restrictions that every gym operator must strictly obey when reopening will lead to a decrease in members' trust.
It's easy to understand why people will avoid gyms and health & leisure centres in the foreseeable future, even if they reopen and follow all rules imposed by the authorities. That is why it is vital to do everything in your power to regain your members' trust so you can ensure a successful reopening.
If you can gain your members' faith in your facility, you'll see them coming back sooner rather than later, once you reopen. The keyword here is "trust".
