It may not feel like it yet, Seattle workout warriors, but the city’s fitness scene has begun to make gains. Gyms and studios can resume hosting private workouts and small group classes as part of Phase 2 of the state’s pandemic recovery plan.
Still, some facilities may not reopen until capacities are back to normal, and even when they do, members may be hesitant to move from downward dog into child’s pose, or drop to the floor for a fresh set of push-ups, outside of their socially distant living rooms. For now, these Seattle studios and gyms will continue to offer exercise and yoga classes to stream from home.
