Dear Midway Motion and Fitness Family,
As you probably know by now, Delaware’s Governor John Carney has issued an order for all gyms to close. Accordingly, we will close tonight, Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at 8:00 pm.
Over the course of the last several weeks, we have doubled down on our usual (very) thorough cleaning protocols. We added a few hours a day of extra cleaning and asked all of our front desk staff to help to continually disinfect the equipment and building.
This has been an incredibly emotional decision because we know how important health is to our members and we are humbled by your commitment. For many, it’s been in spite of significant challenges. You inspire us and those around you! We know you could have chosen any gym in town, but most people choose our gym because we have the best members! We have a good facility and an excellent staff – but let’s face it – our members are what make Midway great. And we don’t want to ever disappoint you! We hope that you will continue to stand by us even though we know this is difficult news to get.
Over the last few days we have been receiving emails and texts offering encouragement and support. Thank you to everyone who reached out to us. We know this is hard for those who have continued to come to the gym and we know that for many of us, the social aspect is just as important as the physical workout.
Some members have been freezing their accounts and we completely understand why, especially for those whose income is impacted by loss of work. However, with each member who freezes, it makes it more difficult for us to meet our obligations and will at some point cause financial issues down the road. We hope each member considers how long we have held out to make this decision, and what a hardship it will be on all of us if membership dues can’t cover expenses. We hope you will think carefully about your decision. We have prided ourselves on being a friendly, welcoming and honest business. We are honored by your support.
We thank each of you for being part of the Midway Motion and Fitness Family. We truly are a family and as we move forward through whatever awaits us, we encourage you to reach out to us, especially if there’s some way we could be helpful to you during this time. The best way to reach us will be through email: Rich@midwayfitness.com. We hope the coming weeks will provide each of us with a time to reflect, recharge, and rest so we are ready for the post-corona world.
We look forward to personally greeting each of you upon your return to Midway! We will send update emails about reopening to members and post the information on Facebook as we receive it.
Many thanks, much love, and please stay healthy!
