Gymnasiums, indoor pools, dance studios and yoga studios can reopen on June 13 as more COVID-19 restrictions are lifted across NSW.
And kids' sport can resume across the state from July 1 under the new easing of restrictions announced on Tuesday.
Deputy Premier John Barilaro thanked the community for its patience while the government has worked through its COVID-19 recovery plan.
"I'm proud of this state for following the health advice and flattening the curve to such a point, where we can now re-introduce kids' sports and open gyms," Mr Barilaro said.
Sport and exercise boosts morale and this is exactly what NSW needs right now.
From Saturday, June 13, the following will be allowed:
- Fitness, gymnasiums, pilates, yoga and dance studios can reopen with up to 10 people per class and 100 people in an indoor venue.
- Community centres, including their recreational facilities, can reopen.
- Some indoor recreational facilities including pools and saunas can also reopen with restricted numbers.
- Tattoo and massage parlours can reopen with up to 10 clients.
However, the one person per four square metre rule must be applied at all times.
Health Minister Brad Hazzard said COVID-19 safety plans for each activity or sport were critical to enable a statewide restart on July 1 for participants aged 18 and under.
Mudgee Countryfit Gym owner Glenn Maynard said he's glad to be able to open the doors again.
"I've been here for 30 years and I've never been told to shut my door," he said.
"Knowing that members couldn't come in, that was the biggest thing.
NSW loves sport, and I am so pleased clubs and organisations will now be able to plan their fixtures list for their seasons to resume.
"You couldn't do anything about it, you just have to suck it up. A lot of other businesses are in the same position. We're one of the last businesses to open in the last part of the rollout."
Glenn has taken advantage of the closure, spending every day in the building renovating and updating parts of the gym he's been unable to previously.
"I've been paining t and refurbished the ladies toilet - I've had money put aside, it's something you couldn't do normally because we're 24 hours so I can't shut things down," he said.
"For me I've been busier than what I've ever been, I can't wait to open so I can have a rest.
"I was hoping for another week but I'm not gonna argue with them having all this done all this work longer hours to get it finished."
The gym will reopen on June 13.
Yoga instructor Jessmyn Pileggi said she's just as keen to get back into the studio.
"I much prefer teaching in person as opposed to being on someone's computer or iPhone. We all crave that in person connection that only a studio class can deliver," she said.
Jessmyn was previously doing yoga classes on Facebook live and recently ran an outdoor class with limited numbers.
Acting Sport Minister Geoff Lee said indoor and outdoor community sports for those aged 18 years and under were ready to return from July 1.
"Children and young people will be thrilled they can get together with friends and teammates again and I am sure parents will welcome the news too," Mr Lee said.
"NSW loves sport, and I am so pleased clubs and organisations will now be able to plan their fixtures list for their seasons to resume."
A decision on a potential return date for adult community sport will be made at a later stage.
