GYM CLOSURE – Saturday, March 21, 2020

Hey there, Forte Fam,

We tried.

But unfortunately, the city has decided for us to TEMPORARILY for this COVID-19 outbreak.

Nashville metro announced today they are adding gyms to the list of businesses restricted from being open.

We wanted to let you know we are exploring offering an online class daily to give our crew the opportunity to connect.  More to come on that.

We will also continue to program home workouts to support your fitness while we are forced to stay apart, and will be sticking close to the news so we can open up shop as soon as possible.  Our best guess is that we will be forced to stay closed at least until April 3rd. 

Thank you all for your support and understanding as we’ve worked through this unique and tough  time.  And thank you to all our coaches who were ready and willing to keep sharing their love and talent of fitness with our members up until now.  It means so much to see us all come together to support each other, provide some normalcy, share a joke, or offer comfort to one another.  This is going to be a weird, and maybe a uncomfortable time, but we will all get through it, learn from it, and come out the other side wiser and stronger.
Today’s 5:30 PM class was our last class for just a little bit.  We will be open tomorrow (Saturday, 3/21) from 8:30AM-11AM to give members the opportunity to come by and check out additional equipment.  This will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.  
Equipment allowed:
Slam Balls
Jump Ropes (I have some to give you to keep)
People have asked about barbells. A few weeks ago I actually hired professional barbell cleaners and they will be detailing the bars tomorrow (cleaning, scrubbing, dissembling and oiling etc) – but I may lend some of them out early next week.
I am also considering a couple bikes, rowers, and ski ergs. You will need to be able to transport them in a vehicle large enough to scratch, dent, or damage them. 
Stay well and reach out with any questions or concerns. We will miss you all!
