Masking in the Gym

by Andy Gaustad, MS, NSCA-CSCS Certified Personal Trainer

Let's face it. Nobody likes wearing masks all day. They can be uncomfortable, hot and sweaty. But...we're all in this pandemic together and so close to getting through, so we need to keep working together towards common goals so one day masking can be just a memory!
