Another day, another gym revealing what its training space will look like with Covid-19 restrictions in place. Today it's the turn of Manor gym, which operates five locations all over London.

As you can see from the video Manor shared on YouTube, the gym started by giving its space a thorough fumigation, which it says it will continue to carry out regularly, as well as carrying out daily deep cleans.

Manor has also redesigned the layout at each of its five facilities, making sure each member is able to stay two metres apart during training and group workouts. Alongside each training space, the gym has marked out a space for belongings to be kept because its lockers and changing rooms will be closed for the time being. Shower facilities are also closed, so members will have to stay in their gym gear until they get home.

In addition to the changes to its space, Manor will also be conducting temperature checks on everyone everyone entering its facilities and anyone with an elevated temperature higher than 37.2°C won't be allowed to train.

In a message to its members, the gym said that it's still in the process of redesigning the timetable and programming "to account for reduced capacities, social distancing, cleaning times and the time needed for members to enter and exit the facilities with social distancing".

While there are no glass partitions or shower-curtain separating devices at Manor, it will still be a pretty strange experience for such a community-focused gym. For anyone who isn't keen on going back yet, the gym says it will still be offering Facebook live and Zoom sessions for the foreseeable future.
