Right now in Washington, D.C., lawmakers are discussing what to include in the next reconciliation bill. This bill is our best chance to get the GYMS Act passed, but we need to act fast. Government officials need to hear from you that health and fitness facilities cannot be left out again.
Gyms, much like restaurants, were not only indirectly harmed by the pandemic’s impact on the economy but directly bore the brunt of government-mandated closures and restrictions. Unlike restaurants, relief packages have left gyms behind twice. We cannot be left behind again.
In order to support our push to get the GYMS Act included in the next reconciliation bill, we need your help. We’ve created a new one-click campaign targeting your Senators and Small Business Committee Chair Ben Cardin, who will play a key role in deciding what gets included in the reconciliation bill.
In the last year, nearly 20,000 people across the U.S. sent a letter to Congress asking they support the GYMS Act—half were gym-goers and fitness enthusiasts. Your members want to help, they just need to know what they can do to show their support.
So, we’ve created a printable GYMS Act Campaign Flyer that you can print out and post in your facility. The flyer contains a QR code that people can scan with their phones and directly links to the one-click campaign.
