100 Days Closed
Today marks the 100th day in 2021 alone of the forced closure of gyms and fitness centers in Malaysia. We’ve been shut down for more than 50% of this year with no end in sight.
100 Days of our coaches not having the ability to help people combat the co-morbidities associated with severe COVID-19 infection risk.
100 Days of our members not getting fitter, losing fat, and gaining muscle.
100 Days of increased BMI, blood pressure, LDL cholesterol levels, and other markers of poor health.
100 Days of our mental health suffering and sense of isolation increasing.
100 Days of ineffective policies failing to improve the health or economy of the country.
100 Days of our business drowning, and the Malaysian fitness industry dying.
We know that prevention is the key to quality health and actively that working on our fitness and nutrition provides far greater benefits than trying to cure illness once it happens. We work hard to be healthy and deserve the right to be so. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
In a time when the world is opening back up and many countries are encouraging their citizens to not just avoid COVID-19 but to improve their overall health through fitness and nutrition, Malaysia has moved backwards. Imprisoning communities behind razor wire isn’t helping anyone’s health, but gyms do.
Until we’re able to reopen we’ll keep doing our best to serve our community under the imposed restrictions. We’ll continue to provide equipment and virtual coaching to our members as well as advice on how to make the best of this extremely frustrating situation. We encourage anyone who needs to talk to reach out.
For many the “cure” is proving to be far worse than the disease, especially for those of us who routinely put our efforts into building our own immune systems and ability to prevent any severe illness. We’re here to help. We hope to see you soon. Reach out if you need anything.
