Motion Fitness – George
Dear George Motion Fitness Members.
Firstly, we would like to thank you for your loyal support over the last 5 years. It has been a privilege to service your Health and Fitness needs during this time period, but it is with great sadness that we need to announce and make you aware that the Motion Fitness branch in George will be permanently closed from the 01 October 2021.
As many of you may be aware, the Health and Fitness industry, along with the Hospitality and similar sectors of the economy have been adversely affected by Covid-19. Motion Fitness has also not come through this period unscathed. The effect of been closed for over 5 months last year along with much of the last 18 months, only been allowed to access 50 members at any given time, including staff and increased running costs imposed by strict guidelines that were Gazetted, which were put in place to keep us all safe has negatively impacted the business to such an extent it has become unsustainable and has caused the closure of the club.
We put in place numerous initiatives during the last 18 months in order to counter act the negative affect that Covid-19 placed us in, but these initiatives could not sustain the negative impact which just compounded each month.
We worked closely with the landlord over the last few months to try and find a solution to the situation we found ourselves in and the future of the club. After numerous discussions and meetings where various possible solutions were explored, it became evident that an amicable and agreeable solution could not be found and we would need to close the branch down and vacate the premises, much to our disappointment.
We are actively looking for a new site in George and as soon as we successfully negotiate new premises, we will reopen, unfortunately at this point, we have no timeline as to when we will be able to re-open a branch in George again. Once we are successful, we will notify you and welcome you back to a new and improved club.
Yours in Health
Directors and Management of Motion Fitness George.
