3 Ways You Can Help the Fitness Community Get Relief
The pandemic continues to impact the fitness industry. Unfortunately, since fitness businesses have high fixed costs in addition to payroll, federal aid like the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) has been unable to help most local gyms and fitness studios. That's why the Community Gyms Coalition’s efforts to secure aid for gym owners and operators are more important than ever.
Congress is currently considering another round of relief for businesses especially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including gyms and fitness studios, thanks to Community Gyms Coalition, Mindbody, and outreach from thousands of gyms across the country.
However, an extra push is needed from the larger fitness community to make sure gyms receive this much-needed aid.
Here’s how you can help:
- Email your senators to let them know you support aid for gyms and all they bring to your community.
- Tweet your senator asking them to support aid for local gyms.
- Call your senators (select your state from the menu) and leave a message asking them to advocate gym relief.
We're close to success, and we can save thousands of gyms together.
