Gym goers in the western German city of Cologne enjoyed one last session on Sunday night before new virus restrictions come into effect nationwide from Monday.
Last week on Wednesday, German officials agreed to a four-week partial shutdown in a bid to curb a sharp rise in coronavirus infections.
Restaurants, bars, cinemas, theatres, fitness centers and other leisure facilities will be closed.
However, unlike during Germany's shutdown during the first phase of the pandemic, restaurants will still be allowed to serve take-out food while shops and schools are to remain open.
The latest restrictions caused mixed reactions amongst some gym users.
Large swathes of Europe enter lockdown this week, with England joining nations from Austria to Greece in concluding that tougher action is needed to stop the coronavirus spreading out of control.
Over the summer, leaders attempted to strike a balance between protecting public health and fostering an economic recovery. But in a region which has seen more than 220,000 deaths from Covid-19, their hands have been forced by the sheer number of infections, with a winter peak threatening to be even worse than the initial wave in the spring.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who on Saturday announced England will enter partial lockdown, will on Monday try to fend off a looming rebellion from members of his Conservative Party by trying to reassure them the measures will only last four weeks.
