There are around 5,500 gyms and over 100,000 people earn their livelihoods from this industry.

Speaking to news agency PTI, Chirag Sethi, vice president of the Delhi Gym Association, said on Friday that gym owners have suffered the most during the ongoing pandemic.

“Cinema halls, multiplexes and banquet halls were shut along with gyms as a first step to curb the virus’ spread in December. But yesterday, everything was open except for gyms and spas,” Sethi said.

He added that in the next DDMA meeting, authorities should allow gyms to reopen.Pointing out that more than 100,000 people employed in various gyms across Delhi are being affected due to their closure, Sethi hitout at the government authorities by saying that health is never their priority.

“If the DDMA doesn’t want people to be healthy, please let us know and we will also open liquor shops. This is really unfair to the fitness industry of Delhi,” Sethi further said.

Another gym owner told the news agency that fitness centres are shut despite following all Covid-19 norms, but there has been no action taken to prevent crowing at weekly markets.

According to the latest order issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) on Thursday, the weekend curfew has been scrapped, shops can remain open on all days of the week from 10am to 8pm and cinema halls, bars and restaurants can function at 50% of their seating capacity.However, the DDMA has still not allowed the reopening of gyms in Delhi.

Detected to have high BP. Overweight by 12-15kg. A basic clinical check can reveal so much information!” he tweeted.

“In such a patient assessing overall cardiac risk and controlling blood pressure before allowing him to exercise is crucial. In the absence of a pre-enrollment check if any cardiac event like heart attack happens, people will be quick to blame #exercise as the culprit!” he continued.
