A gym in the Dutch town of Waalre has taken some of its equipment outside to resume operations in accordance with the country's coronavirus restrictions.
People were seen training on Wednesday in the so-called «Outdoor Gym», in the 'Coach' sports centre where they lifted weights, did fitness exercises and used rowing machines.
Gyms must keep their doors closed in the Netherlands until September... Еще 1 due to coronavirus restrictions, but training outdoors is allowed.
Customers of the «Outdoor Gym» have to prebook a time slot of one hour and must clean everything they touch before and after they use it. Some customers gave good feedback on the initiative.
«It's so nice, you can't imagine because you are sitting at home and just reading, and cleaning, and reading and cleaning, and then you think «oooh my god when can I go to the gym?» And then I saw the mail «you are allowed to come», so I made a jump into the air, «yes we are coming!» So yesterday we started and I am so happy and my whole day was good», said Agnes Majoor.
According to the latest report of the Dutch Public Health Institute, the Netherlands has registered 43,211 coronavirus cases with 5,562 related deaths.
