Gov may be giving the go-ahead tomorrow
It’s been just shy of 6 months since opportunities for working out became a whole lot slimmer.
Newaygo Fitness? Tamarac? White Cloud PT Fitness Center? Fremont Community Rec Center? All have had their indoor facilities shuttered since the order came down in Mid March. And while the summer months have made it easier getting a bit of exercise outside, we do, after all, live in this bipeninsular paradise where winter (as well as much of fall and spring) aren’t exactly conducive to outdoor aerobics.
But the closures may be ending soon since speculation has been rife that Governor Whitmer will be lifting the ban on fitness clubs as well as bowling alleys and movie theaters during a scheduled press conference tomorrow (Wednesday, September 2) at 2:30pm.
Welcome news for those who miss spinning, zumba, yoga, pilates, the weight room and for many, the camaraderie that sometimes comes with hanging around these fitness focused facilities.
As for the keglers among us the bowling season (the only season longer than hockey) may not have to be cancelled after all.
And for those who prefer a film experience beyond the den or living room indoor theaters could be preparing to put out the popcorn soon.
It has indeed been a long haul for these businesses and should the lifting of the ban come to pass it is hoped that folks will return to their former haunts and patronize the places that will once again be offering their services.
But check in at the press conference tomorrow at 2:30pm and maybe, just maybe, we’ll be delivered a piece of good news..
And soon be back to pumping that iron.
