Julie Burk started this petition to Boutique Fitness owners and clients

As you know, the state and many local counties have been reluctant to allow gyms to open due to an increase in Covid-19 cases.  I am creating this petition because I believe that boutique fitness studios, with our smaller-footprint and ability to limit class size, are uniquely qualified to offer an essential service regarding health and wellness while maintaining a sterile environment and following the safety guidelines from the CDC.  Fitness opportunities are especially imperative at this time as exercise is known to combat disease, improve mental health and boost immunity.  It also improves mood, increases energy and facilitates a better night's sleep, which I think we could all agree is more important than ever. This Covid-19 pandemic crisis, which particularly preys on people with co-morbidities and health issues, demands that we be considered an essential business.  There is clearly a serious need regarding our health and wellness that is not currently being met.  It is alarming to me some of the places that are allowed to open and be considered essential and yet the ability to exercise and even improve health is believed to be non-essential. Please see this study by the NIH- The National Institute of Health showing the incredible effect of exercise on overall health and more importantly, on decreasing morbidity in patients with chronic disease. There is truly a need for us to find a way to fight back against this pandemic and we have the tools and capability to do just that! 

Let’s combine our efforts and send our voices to local representatives, the Governor’s office and wherever we can be heard to hopefully bring back boutique fitness as an essential for the health and wellness of our community! Together we can make a difference!
