Dear {{recipient-first}},

 

Health and wellness – both physical and mental – are hurting in Ontario.

 

In times like these, exercise and fitness are more important than ever. {{CLUB NAME}}, along with the Fitness Industry Council of Canada Ontario Coalition, is advocating for a safe and responsible reopening of fitness clubs and we need your support.

 

With your help, we can get Ontario moving again, and get physical and mental fitness back on track – fitness clubs are a part of the solution, not the problem.

 

Please show your support for a safe and responsible reopening plan for Ontario fitness clubs by signing our online petition.

Thank you for your continued engagement and if you have any questions please contact Andy Hvizd, FIC-Ontario Coalition lead at andy@srcentre.ca
