We Are Doing a Happy Dance!

January 22, 2021

Here in Washington State all fitness facilities were forced to close when our COVID numbers increased. We worked diligently with the Washington Fitness Alliance to explain why we should remain open. In the end….we were able to reopen on January 11th!

To celebrate and as a way to catch the attention of our clients (and potential new clients) we put together this Happy Dance Video and spread it all over social media and sent it out in our weekly eNewsletter.

I also recorded a video explaining all of our reopening details….AND emailed our clients a summary of the updates we have implemented.

Fitness Facilities: Fight AND Stay ‘Open’

January 5, 2021

My announcement to the Northwest Personal Training family about the mandated extended closure.

 

Here in Washington state….health and fitness facilities have been forced to close for the last month or so. I believe that we must take COVID-19 seriously and wish we could stay open. We are part of the solution and not the problem. We know know that at Northwest Personal Training we can provide a safe environment for our clients to work on their fitness, boost their immune systems and relieve stress. All of these things help fight infection and disease.
