The Senate's introduction of the GYMS Act and a new wellness report has many in the fitness industry feeling optimistic once again. Also, the new update to the CDC guidelines moves us ever closer to our pre-pandemic lives and I have some interesting IHRSA announcements to share as well.
Thank you for joining me for this week's Take 5, sponsored by Precor.
GYMS Act Introduced in Senate
I'd like to start off by applauding senators Tammy Duckworth and Jerry Moran for introducing the GYMS Act in the Senate. Also, I want to thank the nearly 14,000 people who already contacted Congress about the GYMS Act. Obviously, we couldn't have gotten this far without you.
The GYMS Act now has more than 110 co-sponsors in the House. Now it's time to shift and continue to build in the House but to also build sponsors in the Senate. Passing the GYMS Act would again help fitness facilities recoup as much as 45% of 2019 revenue to replace revenue lost through the mandatory closures during the pandemic. So please visit thegymsact dot com, take action and share the link with your friends, members, and family so they can help out also.
If you or your business has a Twitter account, we'd also ask you to please make sure you join the Twitter storm on Thursday, May 20. Use hashtag GYMSAct to help get attention focused on the GYMS Act. In the description of this video, we'll include a link to more information and also sample messaging that our friends over at Align Brooklyn have pulled together.
