“CGC and IHRSA thank Congressman Quigley for offering the GYMS Act as an amendment to the American Rescue Plan Act. The GYMS Act would save tens of thousands of gyms and millions of jobs. We are incredibly grateful for his leadership, along with Congressman Fitzpatrick and the 42 additional co-sponsors of this legislation, to make sure Congress does not overlook our industry – one of the hardest-hit by the pandemic. Congress must act now to include this provision in the American Rescue Plan Act.”
