Gyms are slowly opening back up across the country, but they’re definitely not going to be what they used to be. Gyms and social distancing don’t necessarily go hand in hand, and many adjustments have been made for gyms to open back up. Temperatures will be taken, people must stay six feet apartment, and masks must be worn at all times.
Working out with a mask on might not be ideal, but it’s necessary. We’re just going to have to get used to it. If you’re planning on making up for the lost time and hitting the gym in the upcoming months, you want to get a mask that you will actually work out in.
Here are the best and safest ones:
