Today, March 1, marks 350 days since gyms, spas and health clubs were able to consistently operate indoors in California. California is currently the only state in the country that will not allow indoor fitness to open at every tier, despite data and science that demonstrate indoor fitness—with proper COVID-19 protocols in place—is safe.
