As coronavirus rates creep up in New York and businesses worry about new restrictions, gym owners say they are a safe and have the data to prove it.

The New York State Fitness Alliance had a press conference at Metabolic in Green Island Tuesday morning.

They've been doing a survey of 225 of their member-gyms, since gyms were allowed to reopen in late summer. 

Out of 2.3 million check-ins to their gyms, gyms have only received 18 contact tracing calls. That's .0008%. 

No publicly known cases of COVID have originated or were transmitted from a fitness facility.

In addition to safety protocols, the fitness alliance says gyms are better able to track possible cases.
