Sooner or later, gyms and fitness centers around the country will re-open.  But it’ll be anything but back to normal.  This could happen sooner than you might expect thanks to a big lobbying push from the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association, (IHRSA), as well as big shot gym executives, billionaire Steve Ross, and the U.S. Surgeon General, all of whom were part of the White House’s Opening Up America Again Phase 1. And the landscape at your gym is likely to be very different.  Expect many changes including strict adherence to social distancing rules, temperature scans, touch-less check ins, signed waivers, jacked up sanitation rules, and routine closures for cleaning.

In case you haven’t heard, we are in the middle of a global pandemic.  Wearing a face covering isn’t a political statement, it’s an IQ test.  The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluations, an influential model used by the White House, predicts over 208,000 deaths by November, 2020.  If 95% of the population wore face coverings, according to the IHME model, it could save as many as 45,000 lives. Yet, Americans continue to push back on mask wearing citing a variety of reasons including everything from a loss of individual liberties and government imposed social control to discomfort and inconvenience.

Under the best of circumstances, coping with the daily stresses of life can be overwhelming.  Psychologically, stress can cause depression, anxiety, irritability, and restlessness.  It can leave you feeling overwhelmed, unmotivated, and unfocused.  Excessive stress can affect your sleep, impair your memory, and cause you to make bad decisions.  Physical symptoms of stress and anxiety include low energy, headaches, and muscle aches.  Stress affects your digestive tract and causes symptoms like diarrhea, constipation and nausea.  Prolonged stress and anxiety can cause chest pain, rapid heartbeat, loss of libido, frequent colds, and infections.
