After meet­ing with offi­cials of the governor’s office this week, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Colorado’s gym and fit­ness indus­try say they are grate­ful that the state wants to help them sur­vive new Lev­el Red COVID-19 restric­tions that fur­ther lim­it their oper­a­tions, but they warn the new restric­tions are unsus­tain­able for their busi­ness­es long-term.

On Tues­day, Gov. Jared Polis announced that new restric­tions for Lev­el Red “Severe Risk” coun­ties — includ­ing all eight coun­ties in the Den­ver metro area — will go into effect on Fri­day. Gyms will be restrict­ed to 10% of max­i­mum occu­pan­cy, down from the 25% restric­tions pre­vi­ous­ly in effect.

Lat­er that day, mem­bers of the Col­orado Fit­ness Coali­tion met with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the governor’s COVID-19 response team. The coali­tion was cre­at­ed in Sep­tem­ber to advo­cate for the indus­try in response to the pan­dem­ic.

“It’s a part­ner­ship that we’re com­mit­ted to, the CFC and the gov­er­nor and his team,” said Cory Bright­well, a mem­ber of the coalition’s advi­so­ry board and chief exec­u­tive offi­cer of Chuze Fit­ness, which has sev­en Col­orado loca­tions. “They have allowed us to stay open. Even though it’s at 10%, which is not real­ly a sur­viv­able num­ber for us, we appre­ci­ate that they’re at least lis­ten­ing and fol­low­ing the data and the sci­ence behind the fact that there has been lit­tle to zero spread of this virus inside of health club facil­i­ties. We’re dis­ap­point­ed at the 10%, but we also under­stand that Col­orado is at an inflec­tion point of real­ly need­ing to slow the virus and slow the spread.”

Bright­well said the coali­tion will be work­ing with state health offi­cials to find ways to expand the occu­pan­cy restric­tions beyond 10% by col­lab­o­rat­ing to for­mu­late “addi­tion­al safe­ty pro­to­cols and cer­ti­fi­ca­tions” gov­ern­ing safe oper­at­ing pro­ce­dures.

“We’re def­i­nite­ly not going to see any­thing change for at least 30 days, from what we’re hear­ing, but they are open to the con­ver­sa­tion and explor­ing options,” Bright­well said. “It would need to be addi­tion­al safe­ty pro­to­cols, addi­tion­al cer­ti­fi­ca­tions and addi­tion­al mea­sures to show that we tru­ly are dou­bling down on the addi­tion­al safe­ty pro­to­cols we’ve already been enforc­ing.

“We’re real­ly hun­ker­ing down and doing what we can to sur­vive, know­ing the con­ver­sa­tion is still hap­pen­ing as to how do we come out of this and how can we poten­tial­ly get the 10% adjust­ed to allow us to be at a more sur­viv­able capac­i­ty lev­el at Lev­el Red,” Bright­well said.

Coali­tion mem­bers also are hope­ful that when the Col­orado leg­is­la­ture meets in spe­cial ses­sion to pro­vide finan­cial relief for restau­rants and oth­er small busi­ness­es, gym and stu­dio oper­a­tors will be includ­ed.

“The state is clear that 10% is not sus­tain­able for our busi­ness­es, no mat­ter if you’re a small play­er or Col­orado Ath­let­ic Clubs,” said JoAn­na Maslos­ki, anoth­er mem­ber of the coalition’s advi­so­ry board and chief oper­at­ing offi­cer for the Col­orado Ath­let­ic Clubs’ sev­en Front Range facil­i­ties. “One of the things we talked to the governor’s team about is eco­nom­ic recov­ery and being involved in the bills that come up that give an oppor­tu­ni­ty for some of our busi­ness­es to stay in . No mat­ter how big or small you are as a club, this 10% isn’t sus­tain­able. The state rec­og­nizes that, they told us that, and they are work­ing to get us involved in an eco­nom­ic pack­age that can help our clubs.”

Maslos­ki not­ed that the state expand­ed its COVID-19 dial this week so that the new restric­tions could be imposed with­out resort­ing to a full stay-at-home order that could have closed gyms entire­ly.

“They rec­og­nize this is a lit­tle some­thing we can give you, just so you can try to get by,” Maslos­ki said. “We are so appre­cia­tive of how open Gov. Polis and his team and the health depart­ment have been to lis­ten to what we have to say. They’re not experts in all the indus­tries. We want to be that expert for our indus­try for them, and they’ve been real­ly will­ing to lis­ten.

“We are going to keep work­ing togeth­er to hope­ful­ly stay open and pro­vide more ameni­ties and ser­vices to the state,” Maslos­ki says.
