Don't bring your own towels, reduced numbers and equipment and regular hand sanitiser - it's the future of gyms in the new normal world.
Gyms are preparing to open on Friday and the owners of two businesses in Lurgan and Limavady told the Belfast Telegraph about their new routine.
Michael Lavery (42) owns The Columbia Gym in Lurgan which has been open for 11 years.
While many fitness instructors have turned to online coaching in recent months, he instead rented out equipment to customers and has spent the time refurbishing the premises.
During peak times he previously would have had around 30 customers taking part in class with around the same number in the gym area.
His new set up will include reducing the number of treadmills, keeping gym users two metres apart and asking them not to bring towels and to use hand sanitiser.
In a similar move to supermarkets at the start of the pandemic, he is also introducing quiet hours to reassure any vulnerable members.
Updating his customers on social media, he said, has been key to building up trust ahead of reopening.
He has also called for more direct guidance to be made available to gym owners.
"Usually we would be closed during the Twelfth weekend but we'll have to stay open this year," he said.
"We've really made a completely new gym over the last two months. We used to have eight treadmills but now it's down to four. I don't think any gym will be able to have every piece of kit, so people will just have to use their common sense.
"There's no guidance whatsoever from the government as to what we can and can't do.
"A week ago we started a booking system to see how people would behave using it by themselves, but we're scrapping it."
With a facility of 1,000 square metres, he now expects to have around 50 members attending during peak times but will restrict numbers to avoid crowding if needed.
"The message we have is that if you're sick, don't come. We've taken every precaution that other businesses are taking," he said.
"Customers will have a spray bottle and blue roll, so everything they touch will have to be cleaned."
The gym has toilet facilities but does not have showers or changing rooms
"That makes things easier for us, as people come to use the facilities then leave. Other gyms will have to close changing rooms as well I would imagine.
"About six weeks ago, the talk in the industry was that bigger gyms like mine are going to fold. But I have been inundated.
"I ran a free outdoor class last week and it was full within ten minutes. We have about 1,000 members who are coming back and I've had new people contacting me as well. Hopefully we will get a boom over the next six months. It's not really the time being closed that will hurt gyms, it will be the next six months."
Social distancing was never an issue for anyone using Crossfit Limavady's vast 6,000 sq ft premises on the outskirts of the Co Londonderry town but the previous maximum number of 16 people per class will be further reduced from next Friday.
Andy Chapman who has owned Crossfit Limavady in partnership with Michael Walsh for the past four years said he is eager to get back up and running after a very frustrating lockdown.
He said: "The latter part of the lockdown has been particularly frustrating for us as different sectors were being allowed to re-open but gyms were not.
"Our gym occupies a 6,000 sq ft building which is bigger than a lot of supermarkets so social distancing won't be an issue.
"Even before the lockdown our classes are capped at 16 but once we can open we will reduce that number further.
"We still haven't had any Government guidance about what protocols we need to have in place to open next Friday.
"We have completely revamped the way our gym will operate including temperature checks, hand sanitising units and we have introduced walkways that will separate people waiting on a class from people doing a class.
"We have also introduced a separate exit and reduced the length of the classes from one hour to 45 minutes to allow time for a complete clean between classes."
