HONOLULU (KHON2) — Under Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s new reopening strategy gyms and fitness centers will be allowed to open, but only for outdoor exercise and at limited numbers.
The caution for indoor training comes after two Oahu gyms were linked to clusters of COVID-19 cases back in July.
Before the second stay-at-home order went into effect, Parado Power Personal Training owner Blake Parado upgraded his facility to make it compliant with the guidelines.
“We invested money and tried to follow all the protocols, we actually tried to exceed the protocols,” Parado said.
He says he now has to take things week by week to see if his business can survive until tier two, where they can go back indoors with just 25% capacity. That’s followed by tier three at 50% capacity.
Group fitness classes are allowed
