A Ballina Gym owner says he is reopening tomorrow despite the Government restrictions in place.
Stephen Geddes who owns the "The Gym" in Bunree, Ballina says he feels he has to do something for his members, his family and the locality and try to effect change.
The new measures include the order for all non-essential retail and services to close-- however the Gym in Ballina argue that they are an essential service, because going to the gym can help with members' mental health.
Stephen says he is expecting a backlash but is also hopeful of garnering widespread support for his stance.
He has been speaking to Midwest Radio's Michael D. McAndrew.
