As Governor Baker just announced the rollout of which businesses will be able to re-open, gyms and fitness centers will be in Phase 3 of the Massachusetts reopening plan. Based on the estimated timeline, this means no earlier than the beginning of July. However, they are evaluating reopening personal training facilities and outdoor workout sessions prior to the Phase 3 rollout (which I am optimistic about). As we promised to always actively communicate, it’s important for us to be transparent.


With that being said, this more than likely comes as a bummer to many of you. We had well over 100 responses from the survey we sent out last week and a good majority of you can’t wait to be back at the gym. Trust me, we are looking forward to seeing many of you even if it’s at a limited capacity! In addition, the overwhelmingly positive feedback in regards to the virtual coaching and training has been great. This service will not be going away, don’t worry.


Prior to the news, we have been planning and developing our re-opening plans and strategies. I won’t lie, I assumed gyms would not be in phase 1 or phase 2. What I couldn’t predict and still can’t is how our reopening will look in regards to how many people we will be able to serve at a time and how that looks based on functional square footage. My prior communication is that we (CFP) would open in phases, starting with 1-1 and outdoor workouts, then moving groups back into the facility. As I mentioned, I am optimistic that 1-1 and outdoor training will be pushed ahead of the Phase 3 rollout, this would allow our plan to continue…as planned.
