LA gyms reopened at 10% capacity after the county moved into the red tier of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s reopening plan. LA resident Cynthia Godslaw was happy and shocked to get the “welcome back” email from her local LA Fitness, which she returned to right away.
Cesar Fonseca returned only after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. “I'm just happy to … do things that resemble some kind of normalcy in California. … To be able to [go back], it kind of symbolizes a little bit of hope.”
Simone Cromer cancelled her gym membership immediately after driving by an LA Fitness parking lot filled with cars.
