On Tuesday, July 21st at 10:30am, the Michigan Fitness Club Association (MFCA) has organized a fitness workout and rally on the Michigan State Capitol lawn. The event is intended to spotlight the benefits of exercise during this COVID-19 pandemic. Following the mandatory and ongoing closure of fitness centers and gyms throughout the state on March 16th, Michiganders have been left with few options for their regular exercise routines.
The MFCA has expressed concern that without exercise, individuals are facing health conditions that could worsen the effects of COVID-19. Given Michigan’s poor track record regarding obesity and heart disease, the state is in a very vulnerable position.
