Wearing a face mask has become a norm in the entire world during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. However, most of us do not feel like wearing it during all activities. Wearing it inside a gym is not something that people do always. However, we need to consider wearing masks while going to the gym.
The rise in Coronavirus cases all over the world is a point of concern for many health experts all over the world. The best practice right now is to wear face coverings whenever stepping out of our house. The moment 100% of the entire planet’s population starts wearing facial coverings the virus will stop spreading.
Wearing of face Mask defines you, it’s about your dedication to the well being of your family & society. Wear a face mask/cover whenever you step out of home. Always.

Face Masks are the new accessory for the gym
As you’re wearing a mask and you’re restricting the flow of oxygen into your airways and, ultimately, to your muscles, it’s a much more challenging workout. Therefore, you’re working harder, so as you start to increase your intensity, you can burn extra calories. Following this simple rule inside the gym, you don’t have to worry about the air particles coming from other people.
However, health officials also recommend wearing a cloth mask instead of an N-95 mask while exercising. This is mainly because of the thick layers of the N-95 coverings which at times make it difficult for you to breathe while working out. Therefore, cloth coverings are the best for you while exercising.
