Our neighborhood gyms are mostly family-owned and are so much more than just a place where we work out. They are an essential part of our community, keeping us healthy and sane in these crazy times we live in. For many, the gym provides an outlet that is more important than ever as we navigate this new reality. For people working from home, while taking care of loved ones, it's not just about physical health and staying active, it's a place where we can focus on ourselves, get mentally stronger, relieve anxiety and depression.

Without access to safe indoor fitness studios as the cold winter months set in, many people will have a hard time coping. Boutique gyms like our beloved F45 studios go above and beyond to keep us safe. They have implemented reduced class sizes, social distancing boxes to work out in, no shared equipment, gaps between each class to allow for cleaning, cleaning with an electrostatic sprayer throughout the day, touchless entry and exit, staff wearing masks & gloves, members wearing masks at all times outside their dedicated box, screening questions prior to entry. There is not data supporting closure of this facilities, as they have not been the source of an outbreak or Covid-19 spread. 

Keep our local gyms open, help small business owners survive in these tough times, they won't make it otherwise and we will lose access to the one place that keeps us healthy and sane.
