Ladies and gentlemen, it saddens me to inform that we were officially shut down by the town today. The Fire Marshal came around and personally informed me that because of the Governor’s Order, in an effort to force “social distancing” on businesses, we cannot stay open.
The Fire Marshal was a complete gentleman, by the way. He was not happy about having to be the bearer of bad news. I was hoping by limiting the attendance per session that we wouldn’t be included in the establishment closings. I was informed that the town was sending people to every business that holds an Assembly Permit and limiting the size of the “assembly” does not matter.
I asked what the penalty for me to stay open would be and he said I could be fined and I would lose my Assembly Permit. Losing my Assembly Permit is unacceptable as that would make it impossible to run a gym under our current brand and in the location we are in now.
The Fire Marshal could not tell me how long this would go on for because he did not know. I don’t believe anybody knows. So in the meantime, we will work on the Bodyweight Only and Limited Equipment programming for any of you who wanted it texted to you. Let me know if you’re interested. If you are let me know what equipment you have at home. I received about 15 requests between yesterday and this morning. I’ll keep the website updated with articles and my own messages, but no workout. I’ll leave today’s workout up for those of you with a jump rope, rings, and a pull-up bar.
We’ll get through this as we’ve gotten through other adversity. Not knowing how long a period of time we’ll have to wait makes it more difficult. Have patience.
Stay in touch. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.
