TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.
The Glo Barre Boxing Bounce says "We're Open, Tallahassee" - virtually. People are still encouraged to be active, even with gyms and fitness centers having to close their doors.
The gym's owner, Kirsten Strickland, says she's going a different route than other gyms or fitness centers. While they are closed, she is not charging a monthly fee.
Instead, she's offering a much cheaper, online package, that allows people to do workouts like sculpt, barre and cardio classes.
While this is not ideal, Strickland says she's thankful for her "Glo family" and to be able to spend time with her children.
"I want everyone to stay on their routine, and keep working out, and keep doing everything they can to stay fit during this time," said Strickland. "because we need to stay healthy, and the worse thing you can do is sit around and eat Cheetos, so I'm hoping that everyone can stay active and keep their workout routines."
Our goal with this "We're Open Tallahassee" initiative, is to offer informational and positive stories of resilience in our communities. We're in a different environment than ever before, but now is the time to support our local, small businesses as much as we can.
This is not just Tallahassee. South Georgia small businesses, we want to hear from you too!
