The owner of this gym says only 30% of his members are coming in to exercise

Gyms in the city were allowed to open their doors to the public on Aug. 10.

V. T. Mahadevan, the owner of Fitness Paradise, a gym at R. K. Mutt Road, Mylapore, which has been around for more than two decades, says that only 30% of his members are coming to his gym to exercise.

He says, “Before the lockdown, atleast 100 people would drop in everyday but we are seeing only about 30 people now. Home makers usually drop in between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. They are unable to come out due to online classes for their children. Seniors aged 50 and above are also not allowed and that too has resulted in a decrease in the number of people visiting the gym”.

Everybody who enters the gym will need to get their temperature and oxygen level checked. A pair of disposable gloves and towels will be given to them.

Tissues have been provided at every equipment. Members will have to wipe their sweat off the equipment after they exercise. Mahadevan’s team also sanitizes the equipment after the members have finished using it. The oxygen level of the member is checked at the end of the workout too.

The members are given a kashayam made with ginger, tulsi, pepper and turmeric before they leave. Only 15 people are allowed into the gym per hour. Group training and book camp workouts are done in the terrace.

The gym now accepts new memberships. The gym is located at 52, R. K. Mutt Road, Mylapore. It is open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. everyday. For details contact them at 9884255666, 48566677.
