What's going on behind the scenes at Worx? Blair is back to give an update on some exciting changes happening while you've been gone!
When Worx re-opens, we're going to have the healthiest possible environment for our community. Our members deserve the healthiest environment for their workout. We also believe the deserve to have a great time while they're here. That means we're making some major changes to our facilities at both Eastmont and Wenatchee!
Blair provides an update on the status of Worx amidst Washington State's emergency shut-down order. It isn't the best news, but we remain optimistic that Worx will be able to re-open for Wenatchee Valley safely soon! In the meantime, if you want to workout from home, follow our Facebook page to watch some of our virtual group fitness classes!
Blair provides an update on how the gym is preparing to ensure the safety of all members of Worx and the Wenatchee Valley community.
UPDATED MONDAY, MARCH 16TH
Amidst the emerging the recommendations of health professionals regarding COVID-19, we will not be curtailing our operations on Tuesday, we will be shutting down. We will target a 2-week timeframe, but are prepared for longer. We will be freezing everyone's dues so that you will not be paying for a time you did not have access.
Worx strives to be a champion of Wenatchee's health. The data coming out of King County is compelling. For our community, now is the time when we can lead or we can follow. We choose to lead.
See the full statement from Blair quoted below, or view it on our Facebook page.
Hi Worx Members,
We have been monitoring this situation hourly and I have personally been on calls with our community's top healthcare providers. All of which have made the data abundantly clear - shut it down.
I am personally feeling quite chagrined by having to do this after all of the planning and communicating we did today.
We will not be curtailing our operations on Tuesday. We will be shutting down. We will target a 2-week shutdown but are prepared for it to go longer. The trajectory of the epidemiology data coming out of King County is too compelling. We can lead or we can follow. We will lead.
Our hope is that we will cause a cascading effect in our community that might get other businesses to follow and perhaps we can greatly reduce the effect on our valley.
I am personally so sorry for having whip-sawed you all like this with our rapidly changing communication.
PLEASE understand that in our valley we have an opportunity if we act fast enough. And if we act fast enough and we can reduce the wave of COVID-19 cases, perhaps we can be a case study in how a small community should respond.
We will be freezing everyone's dues so that you will not be paying for a time you did not have access. Bear with us while we manage all of this. We will be keeping our staff employed and doing projects and/or community service. Whatever it takes to keep them whole during this time and to get them back face-to-face with all of you when this passes. And it will pass.
Going on 40 years of doing business in this valley and we have never seen anything like this. Please hang in there with us, our competitors, and all local businesses.
IMPORTANT: If you are a senior member at Worx and are isolated, please let us know of any errands to run or anything else we might help with. You can e-mail our GM Katie High at katieh@yourworkoutrx (dot) com for your help request [or click here].
This too shall pass. Hang in there everyone. It will get better.

Tacos shells can be a tough proposition for a lot of diets. But a simple substitution of butter lettuce leaves is a low-carb solution for everyone!
