Local gym moves online to adapt amid Covid-19

EUREKA, Ca. (KIEM)-California now in stage 2 of the state’s modified stay-at-home order …only allows for certain businesses to reopen at this time.

Some businesses such as seated-dine-in food establishments, shopping malls and hair salons must wait. 

Gyms have had to adapt amid Covid-19 since, they too, are not permitted to open up physically right now.

Humboldt Crossfit has found ways to continue to provide a service to their clients while keeping in line with state and county guidelines.

Dr. Shantal White joined Humboldt Crossfit right before the pandemic hit.

She says the gym has made working-out easy and convenient by moving work-outs online and making personal trainers available to all members via zoom, seven days a week. 

White says there are advantages such as being able to make her own protein shake when done working-out in the comfort of her home.

And the disadvantages, no more socializing with others, which is something she is missing despite being able to see other members while doing online classes.
