While welcoming the step, he also spoke about the importance of proper ventilation and sanitization in gyms. “Lack of cross ventilation is a concern. Equipment must be sanitized before and after use. One needs to use towel and disinfectants on things like benches, stools and chairs.” Ramji added that additional care must be taken when it comes to metal surfaces. 

He also mentioned that it is important for gyms to reduce the number of group classes. "Classes have to be planned with a limited number of people per session. Avoid crowding at any cost. Personal trainers must refrain from close contact with clients during exercising. Also, one must make sure that they don’t touch the face with their hands.”

“Those who manage the gyms have to make sure they allot specific time slots to each member,” said Ramji former trainer of the Indian cricket team.  “Carry water bottles, masks, towels, exercise mats, disinfectant wipes. Take your own shower gel or soap or hair dryer if you are using the shower. Never borrow or share anything,’’ said the trainer who has worked with Mumbai Indians.
