I was not a member of Gold Gym. I have membership at Club Fitness in St. Peters/St. Charles, MO. I should say as of this posting anyway. Like everywhere else Club Fitness is “temporarily” closed due to the stay at home/quarantine orders of the COVID-19.
What happened to Golds Gym in the St. Louis area and Alabama markets is happening to other businesses in our nation. This solution (and I don’t have a better one) is destroying businesses and families. This COVID-19 Chinese epidemic has been spread world wide, spreading along with it chaos and economic destruction. Who is getting back to normal the quickest? ………CHINA. The picture I am seeing, as it becomes more in focus daily as we learn more…….China staged biological warfare on the rest of the world. I have no proof it was intentional, but it certainly looks like once the virus broke in China, they released it, knowingly to the world. It has been reported, China stopped domestic/internal flights within their boundaries but allowed international flights. Knowing the virus would spread. President Trump said we were fighting a war, we thought just against a virus, but it is looking like the virus was a weapon of war used by China.
Back to my original purpose of this post, the gyms closing (I get carried away in my rants occasionally). The members that lost their gym will find other gyms, like Club Fitness. However, we don’t know how well Club Fitness will come out of this financially either, not yet. Maybe they see possible new members from Golds Gym being a safety vest sort of speak. Time will tell, but we are running out of it. Below is a news link of the Golds Gym closings in the St. Louis metro area. It includes a couple of gyms out near me in St. Charles County (MO).
