Can you go to the gym in Madrid, Barcelona and Castilla y León?

This Monday, May 25, phase 1 of the de-escalation plan begins for Madrid, Barcelona and the rest of Castilla y León. The process towards the “new normal” consists of four phases, and will initially last until the end of June. Each of these phases presents a completely new scenario, so there are many questions that citizens ask themselves. One of the most repeated in the last days is whether or not it is allowed go to the gym in phase 1 of de-escalation.

From May 2 it is allowed to go out for sports and to walk in certain time bands by age. For phase 1 of de-escalation, the Official State Gazette reflects the authorization by the Government for the opening of both public and private sports centers for the sport practice individually. Likewise, in High Performance centers athletes can access with their personal trainer if necessary.

And the return to the gym?

The opening of the gyms in phase 1 of de-escalation is not contemplated. Only in High Performance centers and in professional league training you can make use of this type of facility, paying special attention to hygiene and safety measures.

When can you return to Gym? We will have to wait until phase 3 of de-escalation, the last of all. In the best case it will start on June 22 and will last two weeks. The opening will be done gradually, with a very limited initial capacity, probably 33%.

Like gyms, swimming pools they also remain closed to the public.
