By now, you may have heard about how armed police in the UK shut down a gym after it refused to close while strict lockdown rules were put in place in the city.

The community gym in Liverpool wasn't the only fitness center dealing with tougher messages abroad, however, as a Polish gym manager in Krakow recently went viral after sharing the lengths she has gone to in order to stay on top of local COVID-19 restrictions. Namely, rebranding her gym into shop and a church so that it can stay open.

Writing in a Facebook post, the manager of The Atlantic Sports and Fitness Club in Kraków, Poland explained that instead of focusing on fitness, it will now be a shop where people can come and try out its machines and also the 'Church of the Healthy Body'.

In the Facebook post, Atlantic Sports' manager, Marta Jamróz wrote: "Dear customers, we know you've been waiting for our decision...we were waiting for the regulation and we were hoping that despite yesterday's press conference of the prime minister, someone would be wise and change their decision... unfortunately we didn't make it.
