The entire country has reopened in some capacity at this point, but the pandemic is far from over in a number of states where new cases of coronavirus continue to rise. Businesses that have in fact opened their doors to customers once again have done so with safety guidelines instructing patrons to wear masks and practice social distancing while inside. But regardless of how many safety precautions are taken, for a quarter of Americans there's one place they won't be going back to anytime soon, even after the coronavirus: the gym.

A survey of 2,000 Americans who typically exercise at least twice a week found that one in four said they would not be returning to the gym for exercise after the pandemic. The survey, which was conducted by OnePoll on behalf of LIFEAID Beverage Co., found that 24 percent of respondents said they were done with gyms forever, while one in three stated they would go less often than they did before.
