The fitness and combat sports gyms across the nation have been closed for more than two months now due to the Coronavirus lockdown in India.

Although the current phase of the lockdown is only up to May 17, the chances of it ending on the decided date seem bleak considering the increase in positive cases.

As we reported earlier, this could worsen the situation of small businesses in the fitness and combat sports industry. Most of the fitness and MMA gyms across the nation have had no practical revenue over this time period of the lockdown while they are still supposed to pay operational costs such as rent.

In an attempt to ease up the situation for the gyms in Karnataka, Members of the Association of MMA Karnataka and Members of Kabba Karnataka Amateur Bodybuilding Association met with Deputy Chief Minister Govind Karjol last day.

AMMAK was represented by President Prasad Gaitonde and Sharan at the meeting in which they presented strategies through which fitness centres can reopen by following safety and hygiene measures.

In a statement given to LockerRoom, Prasad Gaitonde noted that the officials have assured some actions if things get into control soon.

A lot of the gyms out there have come forward with online classes to tackle the issue but at the same time, the relaxations on wine shops have drawn comparisons.

India so far has had 59,662 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 1981 deaths while around 17,847 people have recovered from the virus. The number of COVID-19 cases around the world, meanwhile, have crossed 3.96 Million with 1.32 Million recoveries and 275,000 deaths.
