Nagpur Gym Owners, trainers meet Maha Minister Sunil Kedar, demand opening up of facilities

Gym owners and trainers during their meeting with Maharashtra Sports Minister Sunil Kedar on Thursday

Representatives of Nagpur Gym Owners Association and Consolidated Fitness Trainers Association met Maharashtra Sports Minister Sunil Kedar on Thursday and demanded opening up of facilities. Gyms in Maharashtra were closed in third week of March because of the lockdown imposed in the country to contain the spread of coronavirus.

Gym owners gave Kedar a letter, in which they demanded opening up of their gyms. The association consists of gym owners of more than 500 gyms in the city. When Nation Next spoke to Rahul Maniyar, owner of SPL Fitness Hub, he said, In the letter, apart from demanding that gyms should be opened now, we also mentioned that gym owners will abide by all COVID-19 guidelines stated by the state government. It has been two months since the gyms are closed and that is resulting in heavy financial loss for gym owners and trainers. Plus, fitness enthusiasts are also missing a chance to be fit and healthy.

Stating as to how the lockdown has affected gym owners, Maniyar added, One particular gym owner approached us and told us that he wants to sell the gym as he is finding it hard to maintain it during the lockdown. We assured him of interim financial help and asked him to be patient. We had a positive interaction with the sports minister and we are hoping that we will be getting favourable news after May 31.

The delegation of the gym owners was led by the association president Rohit Sahu, who was accompanied by Maniyar, Atul Tikle, Pranal Lanjewar, Sudhanshu Gupta, Pratik Sabnis and others. Earlier in the month, gym owners also met Canibet Minister Nitin Raut, District Collector Ravindra Thakare and Deputy Municipal Commissioner Nirbhay Jain.
