Gyms around Michigan have been closed by the Governor’s Executive Order for nearly six months. We are now one of only four states that have not reopened gyms statewide.
What is clear from states with reopened gyms is that they do not contribute to the spread of COVID. After tracking millions of members using open gyms across the U.S., here is what the data says.
Our gyms have been ready to open for months, adhering to guidelines established by the Michigan Economic Recovery Commission and the CDC.
Denying millions of Michiganders access to their personal health in the name of protecting public health makes no sense.
If you are ready to get back to your workout, it’s time to add your voice to the group imploring Governor Whitmer to work it out and reopen gyms statewide.

Governor Whitmer, I want my local gym reopened immediately. Modern gyms are cleaner than nearly any other kind of business currently open in Michigan. Your advisory group set standards for reopening gyms, and these businesses have met the bar. Reopen my gym!
Governor Whitmer, Michigan is among the last three states in the U.S. still refusing to acknowledge gyms don’t spread COVID 19. In fact, studies from around the nation and world are clear – gyms help people achieve better physical and mental health. End the insanity and reopen gyms today!t.
Governor Whitmer, I’m among 1.5 million Michigan residents who count on my local gym to reach and sustain my physical health goals. The gyms have followed your advisory group’s guidance for becoming COVID-ready. Please move immediately to lift the closure on the very places that will help us fight the pandemic by making Michigan a healthier state
Governor Whitmer, I’m one of the 1.5 million Michigan residents who has been waiting six months to get back to my local gym. Two things have become clear in the past six months: gyms don’t spread COVID 19, and obesity is a key contributor to hospitalization for COVID patients. If you want to help lower Coronavirus impacts in Michigan, open the gyms!
