R.I. fitness clubs fined for refusing to close during two-week COVID-19 ‘pause’

WARREN, R.I. — An owner of fitness clubs in Rhode Island is defying an order from Governor Gina M. Raimondo for all gyms and recreational facilities to close for two weeks as health officials try to slow an alarming spike in COVID-19 cases.

The owner of Maxx Fitness Clubzz, Matt D’Amico, leaves his facility in Lincoln on Wednesday. He has decided to stay open despite the governor’s orders for fitness clubs to close for two week. He said the spring closure was financially devastating.

The two-week pause that started Monday closed bars, gyms, and casinos, asks most high school students to learn from home, and orders companies to have most employees work from home.

Matt D’Amico, who owns The Maxx Fitness Clubzz franchises in Lincoln and Warren, opened as usual on Monday, however, and has remained open since then. He said that closing would be financially devastating.

“We did it in March and the shutdown lasted 10, 12 weeks. I just can’t survive it again,” D’Amico said. “It’s not about profitability — it’s landlords, equipment rentals, payroll and staff. And, I don’t think it’s right, when everyone else gets to stay open.”

The Health Department issued $500 fines at both locations and ordered the facilities to close immediately and stay closed until the restrictions are lifted.

But D’Amico has refused to shut down. Both Maxx locations were open and busy Wednesday.

“You can say we’re fighting for freedom. It’s what it is,” D’Amico said. “I invested millions of dollars.”

Raimondo ordered the two-week pause in an attempt to stem the rising wave of new COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, which led to the opening of field hospitals on Monday. Rhode Island was up to 59,005 confirmed coronavirus cases on Wednesday, with 1,032 new cases, 11 more deaths, and 408 people hospitalized.

The governor’s office and Health Department referred questions about Maxx Fitness Clubzz to the state Department of Business Regulation, where a spokesman declined to comment “as it is an ongoing and actively evolving situation.”

The fitness clubs are the first businesses to be cited since the pause began on Monday. “I have legal counsel, and we’ll take it day by day,” D’Amico said. “I don’t think fitness centers should be singled out… I believe I have constitutional rights to be able to operate my business.”

D’Amico said his fitness centers have complied with other coronavirus-related all of the Health regulations, keeping the facilities clean and screening staff and customers for COVID-19 symptoms. Health officials told them that some visitors to the fitness centers had tested positive for COVID, but they inspected the facilities and found no problems, he said.

“We have a bunch of customers, and a lot of new members are signing up,” Stephen Couture, the manager of the Lincoln club, said Wednesday.

Trainerize launches new on-demand and live video coaching features designed to help fitness clubs and personal trainers engage their clients in new ways both during the pandemic and beyond.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As the leading client engagement app for personal trainers, studios, and clubs, Trainerize is upping the virtual training game with two all-new video features: on-demand video workouts and live 1-on-1 video call appointments.

In the face of gym closures in early 2020, Trainerize moved the fitness industry online, setting up trainers and gyms to train clients and engage members remotely. As the pandemic continues, fitness businesses need to continue to evolve to ensure long-term success, and Trainerize will be there to help make that happen.

With all-new video training features, Trainerize continues to elevate the human connection central to the platform and emphasize their focus on client engagement. Trainers can now provide video training, on-demand classes, and one-on-one video calls within the Trainerize ecosystem.

These new video features offer the most human experience possible, says Trainerize co-founder and Managing Director, Sharad Mohan. “To me, video is the most engaging medium available beyond face-to-face interactions. For us, the relationship between a trainer and their client, and the personalization, accountability, and motivation it enables, is a crucial part of a successful fitness journey.” With these new features, trainers and coaches can provide face-to-face interactions to their clients, safely and conveniently.

On-demand video workouts

With on-demand video workouts, Trainers and studios can transform their clients’ fitness routines by building libraries of video content—accessible by paying clients anytime, anywhere. Perfect for instructor-led workouts or classes, clients get to feel like their trainer is right there with them, whether they’re at the gym or working out in their living room.

For trainers looking to build on-demand, subscription-style business models, on-demand video will power a self-selecting experience for their clientele. The client can browse through the trainer’s offering and choose the workout that appeals most to them.

1-on-1 live video call appointments

Thanks to 1-on-1 video call appointments, trainers can move consultations and assessments to a virtual format, allowing convenient, efficient check-ins that keep trainers and clients connected. This feature also enables 1-on-1 video coaching sessions. Remote sessions, where clients can receive personalized instructions and real-time feedback, will drive accountability and spark motivation. Video calls are hosted in-app, removing the need for another software, accessible from phone, tablet, and desktop.

Monetizing video training

While these new features will undoubtedly shake up online programs, they’ll also change the way trainers and studios structure their businesses and monetize services, providing a new source of revenue. As the industry continues to reel
