Local gyms are affected by the order from San Luis Obispo County Public Health to close their doors; however, some gyms are looking into ways to stay open.

The manager of Club 24 in San Luis Obispo said the gym just re-opened a month ago after being closed down from the first closure order.

He said the gym is offering outdoor services in an effort to stay open. "We are going to offer outdoors in addition to classes on Zoom as well as Instagram Live classes. We are going to offer as many options as possible," Sanaz Rahimi said.

Many gyms are taking this route to keep their doors open for clients who were excited to get back to working out in doors.

"I was very surprised because I obviously just came here around a week ago and just started and I was excited to get back into the gym and I'm a little shocked that it is now closing again," Nicholas Novak, a Club 24 gym member, said.

The order for gyms, hair salons, barbershops and bars, as well as indoor dining at restaurants, to close goes into effect tomorrow.
