We’re writing to share some good news. After more than two months of temporary closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Fitness Equation (“TFE”) will begin Phase One of the government’s multiphase business reopening process on May 29th (barring the possibility of any updated governmental guidelines between now and then). During Phase One, TFE will move from our current “Closed” status to a “Closed (limited to outdoor fitness)” status with outdoor classes starting in June.
While we will be moving to Phase One of reopening, we will continue NOT to bill our members their normal monthly membership and service dues until we are further through the reopening process, and we will provide further updates on this at a later time. The coronavirus has tested our business and our people (members and staff) just like so many other businesses and people in communities around the state, country, and world. It has also shown how strong we are and the importance of working together, so we are going to move forward in our “new normal” together one step at a time.
Because governmental guidelines state that no one may enter our facilities, we’ll begin with outdoor classes and post the outdoor class schedule on our website. For those of you who can’t join us, TFE’s online video library “TFE Everywhere!” will be available. What is “TFE Everywhere!”? – online fitness education through our website that can benefit our members everywhere at any time! We’ll continue expanding our library of at home workouts (pre-recorded exercise classes and trainer tip videos) via our YouTube channel, and in the coming weeks begin rolling out live streaming classes so you can – Take Fitness Everywhere! Reopening means we will be taking extra precautions for the health and safety of our staff, our customers, and our communities. We will have health and safety procedures in place for our teams, and clear guidance for you on how to use our services as we go forward. We’ll continue to closely follow guidance from national, state, and local authorities to ensure we’re operating in compliance with any restrictions in our area. Rest assured, TFE will continue to put the health and safety of our members, community, and staff first.
Few things make us happier than serving our customers. We are so grateful for your support and understanding as we re-open. To everyone who has reached out with a word of encouragement or has helped support TFE through our “FIGHT COVID-19” community t-shirt project in partnership with Cheers Sports, thank you – this means more to us than you could know.
There’s a spirit of togetherness and an appreciation for healthy living that has defined TFE’s incredibly special member and staff community since we first opened our doors in January 2016. We’re reminded that these qualities are more important now than ever. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
