“We’ve been closed for two months now, and I’ve been doing home workouts and there’s nothing like being in the gym and having motivation around you to keep going,” Saundra Frank, a member of the Charlotte Avenue branch, said.

Lamar Thompson, Regional Vice President, said, “I definitely support that decision and as you can see, we had a lot of members to come in and start utilizing that, they have been sitting idle for quite some time and they’re eager to get going again.”
