Good afternoon guys and after some really tough conversations in my own head over the past 24/48 hours I’ve decided that it would be for the best for us all if I close the gym for a while.
I’m actually writing this with a tear in my eye because of the resilience that we’ve built together as a strength and fitness community and for me to have to give in now is gut wrenching.
This is not a self pity style post guys as finances don’t matter a feckin thing to me, I’m sure I don’t have the disposition of someone who is gonna go hungry but I really wanted to keep the gym going just as an escape for our members through this tough time but alas, it’s not to be unfortunately.
Being an Asthma sufferer myself I wasn’t really thinking straight on a personal level either and although Ross offered to look after things if I wanted to steer clear, that’s not something I was prepared to do.
Without sounding patronising as I’m sure you’ve read this a hundred times already but the health of all our members and their loved ones really is the most important thing to the two Ross’s, Dave and myself and that was what finally made this tough decision for me.
So, where do we go from here??
As a small business, who knows and I’m sure there are a lot of very anxious small to medium business owners out there, but one thing we won’t do is give up, hardly much use in printing the indomitable words ‘No Retreat, No Surrender’ across your gym wall and then giving up because there’s a few bills to pay.
There’s not one human being out there who is not going to be affected in some way by this disastrous virus but it’s now more than ever that we need to take care of each other.
I’ll be setting up a Facebook Group to keep us all motivated and I’ll be posting workouts and stuff and trying to stay positive and have a bit of craic on there. Please keep an eye on my own personal Facebook page and find the group INDUSTRIAL ISOLATION CREW 🤷‍♂️ and ask to join when I get it set up later.
I’ll review the situation as regards the gym next weekend again so please keep your fingers crossed.
As regards membership etc, I can chat to you all on an individual level but I’m sure you all know that I’ll do the right thing in regards to finances as I’ve always tried to do over the past five and a half years.
Well, what more can I say guys?
It’s with a heavy heart that I say sorry to anyone who was hoping we’d be able to continue but it was weighing too heavy on my mind.
Thanks to everyone for understanding.
Much love to you all.
Chat soon.
Pa ❤️
