Gym owners holding out hope for green light


Ballarat’s fitness leaders say gyms could be reopened by next week.

Mel Tempest of Body and Soul fitness says the industry has received word the government is considering giving regional Victorian gyms the green light to reopen after the Queen’s Birthday.

However she’s not holding her breath.


"We are having no discussions with the Dan Andrews government, we have lobbied, MP's speaking up... Victoria has 40,000 people in the fitness industry at the moment unemployed," she said.
