Laura Dubler and Will Holmes are a couple who run a small personal training facility called Core Training in Switzerland. Switzerland announced that gyms could be opened from early May, so they’ve had 6+ weeks worth of reopening experience now. I asked them to come on talk about what they’ve learnt during that time. We cover whether or not they’ve kept their online offering, how their clients have found coming back into the gym, how they’ve found coaching while social distancing and a bunch of unexpected things that will help you plan for your gym reopening.
