Returning to the gym becoming easier

Many people heading back to fitness centers like the Door County YMCA are finding out they can get back into shape safely. A survey done by the International Health, Racquet, and Sportsclub Association showed 88 percent of people who have returned to work out after shutdowns are confident in their safety and cleanliness measures. Approximately 54 percent of gym-goers said they missed the routine of going to the center to work out and 36 percent admitted they missed the sense of community they received. The Door County YMCA has changed many of its procedures over the last several months including spacing out their equipment and mandatory masking. Tonya Felhofer from the Door County YMCA says people are still surprised by how safe they feel when they come in to work out.

Felhofer says many of its visitors are also slowly getting used to working out with masks on, adding that it usually takes a few sessions to get used to it. Visitors to the Door County YMCA are also being asked to check the Angel Tree and its gently used shoe drive to help children not just in the community, but around the world.
