Some people skip a work out when the weather gets bad, and others are determined to get to the gym even if roads could be dangerous.
Even with the possibility of ice on the roads, people in Huntsville woke up early to drive to the gym. Many were planning to work out this morning even if they did see snow. Gym-goers say getting a workout in is just too important.
Planet Fitness member, Charmayne Jackson, said, “Diabetes runs in my family, so that’s one thing that I want to skip me. I don’t want it to affect me in any way like that, so I try to make sure that I keep my routine, keep my commitment to the gym, and come as often as possible.”
One Planet Fitness worker sprinkled salt in the parking lot this morning to make sure it was safe for gym members.
“We just really are cautious about our parking lot, because it has a lot of places where puddles fill up, so it could easily ice over, so we just really make sure that everything is safe,” said Planet Fitness employee, Demarcus Nesby.
