Gyms, fitness centers start to reopen after official announcement by governor | News

Gyms and fitness centers officially reopen their doors to patrons for the first time in almost six months.

Even though gyms can legally reopen, many fitness centers are still preparing to let customers back in.

“It’s great being back open and seeing all the regulars. Being able to see some friendly faces back in the club,” said Alex Marion, manager at Burton Planet Fitness.

It’s been a long six months for people like Marion.

On Wednesday, Sept. 9, Marion was able to reopen to the public.

Strict safety measures will be in place to limit the spread of COVID-19, including requiring all gym-goers to wear masks always and limiting the capacity to 25 percent.

Marion said staff has been fully trained on how to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

“We’ve increased our cleaning standards. We are using disinfectant that’s on the EPA’s list of cleaners that are able to treat

Why you need collagen supplements for perfect skin

There’s a skincare ingredient that is all the rage right now – and surprisingly, it’s not something you put on your face.

The edible beauty item that’s rising in the skincare ranks is collagen. Scientific research shows it is not only anti-ageing and good for skin, but also has incredible health benefits such as aiding muscle recovery and helping heal the digestive system.

Once a niche product only found in health food stores and with a pretty expensive price-tag to boot, it’s recently become a lot more affordable and has been popping up on supermarket shelves.

Coles is the latest to launch a collagen range, stocking New Zealand brand Dose & Co and its range of natural collagen products designed to be added into coffee or smoothies.

A spokesperson for Coles said the range – a first of its kind in the supermarket – had proved very “popular” with customers.

Society Notebook: Saco fitness center hosts cornhole for a cause

Evolution Athletix, a fitness center in Saco, hosted a community cornhole tournament Aug. 24, raising $860 and a carload of pet food for the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland.

“They told us they were hosting this cornhole tournament and wanted to donate the proceeds to us,” said Sarah LeRoyer, community engagement coordinator for the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland. “This is our biggest event since February. We had to cancel our two biggest fundraisers – the Fur Ball and Ales for Tails – and we might have raised $150,000 between them. I was excited to get this call.”

Seventeen teams played in the double-elimination tournament, while country music played on the radio and Mainely Burgers kept everyone satisfied.

Competitors included the animal shelter’s facility manager Dan Mastrogior, wearing a T-shirt with an illustration of a cat and the word “antidepressant.”

‘Class Action Park’: Film probes death, danger and outrageous rides at N.J. water park

Brian Larsson watches the comments roll in on Facebook.

“I almost got killed on the Alpine Slide,” people say, looking back fondly on their wild memories of Action Park. “I love that place.”

Larsson thinks about responding. He thinks about the spirit in which they make such comments. These people can laugh because they haven’t lost anything.

His brother can’t. His life was cut short as a result of an accident at the now-defunct Vernon water park.

George Larsson Jr. was 19 when he was thrown off a cart on the Alpine Slide and hit his head on a rock in 1980. He died after a week-long coma.

Larsson, who grew up just a short drive from Action Park in Hamburg, was the first person to lose his life because of a ride there. His family settled with the park for $100,000. Subject to a gag order for years, the

Forget Clorox, Procter & Gamble Is a Better Consumer Staples Stock

Prior to the pandemic, Clorox (NYSE: CLX) had been struggling with weak sales of its household products — including bags, wraps, grilling products, cat litter, and digestive health products — and its international sales had been declining. However, the pandemic sparked fresh demand for its cleaning products, especially in the U.S., and easily offset those weaknesses.

That shift turned the slow-growth consumer staples stock into one of the top defensive plays against COVID-19, and sparked its year-to-date rally of over 40%. Clorox’s stock might still have room to run in this jittery market, but investors seeking a more balanced consumer staples investment for a post-pandemic world should stick with its larger peer Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) instead.
