Now that we are slowly getting back to our normal routines after the COVID-19 lockdown measures have been lifted, a lot of us are realising just how out of shape we have become. Whether we have lost some muscle mass, gained some extra weight, or just reduced our endurance levels a bit, the inactivity of the 4 months or so of lockdown is really showing its effects.

gym by offering monthly deals and reduced membership prices.
