This is a rapidly developing situation. For the most up-to-date information, check resources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and and local health official updates regularly. This story will be updated as new information becomes available.

Beginning July 27, gymgoers at Life Time will be required to wear a mask at all clubs nationwide. Additionally, clubs are taking other precautions such as putting social distancing measures in place, limiting class sizes, requiring temperature screenings before entering, and increasing cleaning measures.

In some locations where gyms are open and local governments have made masks mandatory, this protocol is already in effect.

Additionally, Life Time has put together a list of tips for how to get your best workout, and do it safely, in a mask, including using your diaphragm to breathe instead of your chest or reducing the intensity of your workouts to start as you become used to breathing in a mask during a workout.
