ICYMI: Gym owners call on Congress to provide targeted relief to fitness facilities

In case you missed it, Community Gyms Coalition members and gym owners Deb Strougo of Row House and Jordan Holland of Riot Athletics joined Fox & Friends this morning to explain why local gyms need relief in order to survive the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the interview, both gym owners highlighted the devastating impact that COVID-19 has had on gyms and called on members of Congress to provide industry-specific relief and corrections to the PPP.

Unfortunately, the relief bill that was just passed did not include targeted relief for gyms or corrections to PPP. This is disappointing given that nearly 40 percent of gyms in the United States will not make it through 2021 without federal assistance.
