Along with the many doors closing recently during this time of the Coronavirus it was only a matter of time before the gyms started closing too.

I got the text from my daughter last night all upset about her Plano location of Planet Fitness closing. She is there about six times a week. She has been texting her trainer to keep her posted and she got the final word last night. So I knew it was only a matter of time until I heard from local friends here too.

It happened. Here is the official word from Planet Fitness here in Amarillo:

Out of an abundance of caution, this Planet Fitness will be temporarily closed effective Tuesday, March 17th. We recognize that you were recently billed for your monthly dues and we will credit your payment for our closed days on your next monthly bill upon reopening. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will reopen as soon as permitted.

And don’t forget, tune-in to our daily Facebook Live for FREE at-home workouts for anyone and everyone. Get moving with our trainers and even some surprise celebrity guests for a 20 minute or less workout because we know to stay healthy, we need to stay active. No equipment needed!

It makes sense. I get it. I am just hating this for all of the employees again who count on the hours. They are just added to the list of restaurant workers and other service industry folks who have taken a big hit the past couple of weeks.

I'm really looking forward to the over-abundance of stories about places beginning to open up again. They will happen....I know it. They can't happen soon enough for me. We got this.
