Gyms and indoor sports courts will be able to reopen from 31 August, Nicola Sturgeon has announced.
The first minister told Holyrood she was bringing forward the reopening of the facilities, which were previously expected to open in mid-September.
She said it meant people aged 12 and over could take part in non-contact activity in places such as dance and gymnastics studios. Younger children will be able to take part in all activity.
The news comes as a relief to many gym owners, who have had to wait particularly long by comparison to some other businesses for a chance to re-open. Conditions will be very different inside these premises, post lockdown.
Have your say. Have YOU missed the gym? Could YOU do with improving your fitness after lockdown?
