service, we are still in operation. We have taken all precautions that we can, providing our employees with face masks,
gloves, hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes. In some cases we are able to do quotes over the phone, with the assistance
of the customer emailing us pictures, which limits the amount of time we are in their house. Although we have closed

Filming exercise videos and creation of our HomeFit and EquipFit series to keep people motivated and working out together. Doing live exercise classes twice a day on Zoom to get a group together and get that “vibe” of community going in a workout setting. Creating workout programs for our members to do at home based on the equipment they may have available to them. We started two week lifestyle challenges for people to focus on something positive during this time where they can use our App to track sleep, exercise,
eating, mobility and workouts. Each section awards points to win prizes. We also have a quarantine bingo game, which is another fun way to stay active and share positive messages on social media to everyone and win prizes.

There are many other businesses in the area that are still providing service to customers. Please contact them directly to see how you can continue to support them during this time.
