San Antonio Gyms Are Reopening Now & Here's How They'll Be Different

So many will be opening Monday!

It has been quite a few weeks since Texas went under stay-at-home orders that required most businesses to shut down for not being essential. Gyms and fitness clubs were a part of this group, and they have been closed for quite some time. As Texas reopens this May, gyms are allowed to reopen once again to their members. However, things will be quite different going forward.

Two popular chain gyms that will be reopening soon are Gold's Gym and Life Time Fitness. Other big gyms such as Joe's Gym and Body Gym will be reopening as well. These fitness centers are eager to start running again, as are many of their members.

San Antonio Bars Across The City Will Be Opening Tomorrow

They just won’t be serving anyone.

According to KENS5, "Turn Up The Lights In Unity" is taking place tomorrow in San Antonio to show Texas Governor Greg Abbott that bars are ready to reopen.

A Mystical Rare 'Blue Dragon' Was Just Found On A Texas Beach (PHOTOS)

They know how to defend themselves.

Spotting a rare creature from the sea isn't common in Texas, especially with the lack of tropical fish-filled near-shore beaches compared to states like Florida or Georgia. However, last week, a Texas beach welcomed a rare creature after a family saw it wash up onshore and it's unlike anything Texans have ever seen before. While it resembles a sea slug, its name and characteristics are not what you'd expect them to be.

A "blue dragon" was found at Padre Island National Seashore last week after a family saw it while they were walking along the beach.
