Evolve Gym November 2020 Closure Update
Dearest Evolve member,
First and foremost we wish that you are all in good health and spirits during this tumultuous time.
It is with regret that we have to temporarily close Evolve Gyms due to Saturday’s Government announcement of a further National Lockdown impacting all Gyms across England.
As a responsible business and one whereby our members, staff and local community are of paramount importance to us, it is the most sensible action to take.
When we went into lockdown back in March this year, we froze all memberships for free. We didn’t know that it would be another four months until we reopened, during which we still had rent and bills to pay and no financial compensation from either the Government or insurance company. We took a massive financial hit because of this and we are still in the process of recovering. Another month without income will most certainly be the final nail in the coffin for Evolve, which is why we have taken the very difficult decision of keeping all memberships running as normal.
We of course totally understand if you disagree with the decision and if this is the case, we can freeze your membership instead at the rate of £5 per month or a nominal fee of your choice if you so wish. Please ensure you email in your freeze request to the address below. Ultimately we appreciate any and every financial support from our members to ensure there is an Evolve Gym to return to once lockdown ends.
We will be running our online platform Evolve On Demand on our main Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/evolvegymofficial/ whereby our amazing PTs will be taking you through a whole host of classes, Q&A’s and challenges to keep you fit and sane throughout lockdown. Members who are freezing or letting their memberships run as normal throughout November will have automatic access to Evolve On Demand.
We will of course keep you fully updated so you know exactly when our club is re-opening. As always, please get in touch with the team on the contact details below if you have any questions.
Finally, we would like to thank all of you once again for your support and patience.
Stay fit and healthy and we look forward to seeing you training with us again very soon.
