Let's get restarted: Physical Company offers advice on keeping gym members safe

As countries around the world gear up to relax their lockdown rules, there remains a question mark over gyms and studios, which in many markets will be one of the last sectors to be given the green light.

Yet even in these more cautious markets, positive pressure is being applied on decisionmakers to bring gym opening forwards; a dual-pronged approach by organisations such as ukactive and EuropeActive is highlighting the proven benefits of being active for our immunity and virus resilience, and laying out strict guidelines for gym re-opening to assuage safety concerns.

Readers are no doubt familiar with the recommendations; the full documents can be accessed via the links above for those who are yet to download a copy. But the topline is this: from stringent cleaning protocols, to social distancing, to the need for masks and other protective measures, gyms when they re-open will be very different places from how they used to be.

So, how will you prepare your fitness areas to ensure, at a minimum, they meet the safety guidelines?

How will you then go the extra mile to reassure your members that you’ve put them first, ensuring they feel safe enough that the benefits of exercise – more compelling now than ever – outweigh any residual concerns they may have?

We've designed our Let's Get Restarted document to offer a few helpful suggestions and hands-on tips, embracing the areas in which Physical Company is uniquely positioned to be your go-to partner – your First for Fitness Solutions – as you prepare to re-open.

Let's Get Restarted contents:

  • • PROTECTIVE FLOORING
  • • WELLNESS & PROTECTION
  • • EXERCISE MATS & SMALL EQUIPMENT
  • • OUTDOOR EXERCISE
  • • GYM DESIGNS & LAYOUTS
  • • RE-LAUNCH CAMPAIGNS
  • • RESTART PACK1000

Company Details
Physical Company Ltd
Fitness provision has changed dramatically over recent years, with ever larger spaces being allocated to free weights, group exercise, functional and small group training.

This shift in focus has brought our expertise to the fore; we specialise in everything today’s fitness spaces should be built around, from flooring to functional equipment and programming, rigs to combat, studio accessories to wellness solutions to complementary innovations from best-in-class manufacturers: Merrithew’s Pilates reformers, Ecore Athletic performance flooring, Reaxing’s neuromuscular training range.

We let each unique space dictate its needs, then create exceptional training opportunities.

This is why our mission statement is ‘First for Fitness Solutions’ – because we should be your first phone call. However large or small your fitness space, we’ll work with you from concept to installation and beyond to ensure it exceeds expectations.

It’s time to think differently. It’s time to turn to Physical Company first for your fitness solutions.
