My winter gym break starts early

Starting today, my county in Ohio have a stay-at-home order that ends on 12/16/20, along with the 3-week curfew that started this Thursday night. Though my gym haven't mentioned canceling classes for a month on the website or via email/text alerts, my winter gym break starts next week due to Covid19. Other than trips to the doctor or to the grocery store, I don't think my trips to the gym applies. So this is it until spring 2021 when the pandemic is over and/or vaccinated, or until the order is lifted and we're out of the red zone.

You can try exercising at home though. Not really the same but it's better than nothing.

Our gyms have been forced to close for the weeks and then will see from there how much longer the newest lockdown will apply. quit going after the first lockdown since they close the times when I'm there freest. (Sp?)

Oh wow. I remember you posted that earlier this week. Good thing I've downloaded some apps on my new phone for home practice until spring.

@KristenH I've lost about ten pounds being laid up and not eating too much I should start some way exercises myself. I could do leg lifts from the bed or a chair. If wait on doing ones while standing until my foot is better.

@MarshaMusselman Not a bad idea, depending on how your foot feels.

So glad it's normal by where you are. It's a chaotic mess over here.

Shutting down an area does seem to be the only way to get rid of the virus. At least, it has worked for Western Australia.

I'm sorry it's starting early. I hope we can get a handle on this pandemic and get it under control so life can take on a more normal state.

Gyms have been especially affected by the virus. I've seen quite a lot of controversy on the news about owners wanting to comply with safety measures but Governors like ours in NJ not allowing them to open. Are you doing any at home exercise to keep fit?

Everything here was suppose to close and the businesses all said NO and stayed open anyway. Only the fitness centers closed.
