Gyms across the state of Texas can begin operations for the first time since March on May 18, as orders by Gov. Greg Abbott go into effect allowing the facilities to reopen at 25% capacity and with new health guidelines in place to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The map above lists gyms and fitness facilities that have announced they will reopen in South Austin on May 18.

Gyms will be following recommendations outlined by the governor’s office. Those recommendations include...

  • encouraging employees to wear face masks;

  • spacing equipment apart based on social distancing standards;

  • making sanitizers and cleaning supplies readily available to clean equipment after use;

  • checking the temperature of staff and visitors as they arrive;

  • capping occupancy to 25% a facilities capacity, not including staff; and...

  • keeping showers and locker rooms closed.


At least 18 gyms and fitness centers in South Austin are planning to reopen, including five Gold's Gym locations, two Planet Fitness locations, an Anytime Fitness and a number of private or independently owned centers.

CrossFit Oak Hill, which is located at 5546 W. Hwy. 290, Ste. 305, Austin, posted their opening announcement online as well as a video about new operating procedures.



Austin Fitness Center, located at 3100 W. Slaughter Lane, Austin, was one of the local centers to choose not to reopen May 18, citing increased hospitalization of coronavirus patients in Travis County and case numbers increasing state wide as reasons why the gym has decided to wait.



Local studio JJ Machado Austin Jiujitsu, located at 11210 W. Hwy. 290, Ste. A200, Austin, has already announced it will not reopen until at least July 1.

YMCA of Austin is currently planning to reopen all of its facilities June 1, according to the organization.






















REOPENING ANNOUNCEMENTBased on yesterday's announcement by Gov. Abbott, the YMCA of Austin will plan to reopen facilities on Monday, June 1. Given the scope of our operations, we will be spending the coming weeks putting measures in place to ensure the safety of our members and staff. Rest assured, we will take all necessary measures to adapt our facilities to provide adequate spacing and enhanced cleanliness. We'll be sharing more details very soon.
