Here’s a message to anyone going gyms currently about mask wearing.
Please make sure to wear a mask and wear it correctly as well as applying a little common sense. What to I mean by this, please let me explain.
First and foremost when wearing a mask make sure it fits and make sure it is covering your nose 100% of the time.
Let me explain further for those who may not understand…
You don’t just wear a mask when NOT doing a set, or just keep it above your nose when NOT doing a set. No almost covering the nose, there is covering or there is not…not a hard concept. The most important time is during your set. You avoid this situation by wearing you mask at all times in the proper manner.
You don’t wear your mask so low that it falls off every time you do a set (yes we’re wise to that trick and yes people see you doing it).
If you’re using a smart phone don’t pull your mask down every two seconds for facial recognition, just use your passcode.
When drinking water just pull down you mask down when ready, not before unscrewing the cap or getting your water out of your bag etc. And please no sidebar conversation before it goes back up. Pull it down, drink and pull it back up, very simple.
A quick note on masks themselves, as mentioned before make sure they fit, and please do understand a face shield goes on top of a mask. Just wearing a face shield is utterly useless.
None of this should be news to anyone, but it sure as heck may be a reminder to some. If you’re not taking these safety precautions you are either willfully ignorant, stupid or an asshole and possibly all three.
We have vaccines coming steadily but we are not out of the woods yet, please be safe and courteous to others by wearing your mask properly and again using some common sense. It’s really not that big of an ask.
Train Hard, Train Safe!!
