OLYMPIA - Governor Jay Inslee's office has outlined the criteria for certain fitness and training activities to resume under Phase 2 of reopening in Washington state. 

Under the memorandum, which is effective as of Tuesday, May 19, "fitness and training actives" include staffed, indoor facilities that provide:

  • Instructions for personal fitness training that requires access to specialized equipment, including, but not limited to gymnastics, weight and resistance training, martial arts, yoga and similar instructor-led fitness services. 

Under Phase 2, fitness activities must be limited to groups of five trainees or less, plus a single educator. 

Fitness and training activities may resume under these guidelines if:

  1. They can meet and maintain all requirements, including providing materials, schedules and equipment needed to comply
  2. They conduct only those activities that are allowed under their county's phase status
