“87% of gym members don’t even know their gym is closed”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic closed many gyms. However, many gym members never regularly went to the gym, anyway.

“87% of gym members don’t even know their gym is closed” was posted on Twitter by “Welcome to the pleasure dome” on April 3, 2020. The percentage (87%) has varied in other versions of the joke.
