Local Gym Says Thank You to Local Heroes on the Frontline
SPOKANE, Wash. and Portland, Ore. – MÜV Fitness (MÜV) is rising to the occasion to be there for the community members who have selflessly put themselves on the frontline as part of the local response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a community ally, MÜV has always aligned itself with charities and local non-profit organizations, and now it is coming to the aid of hospital workers and first responders who are giving of themselves tirelessly to care for coronavirus patients.
To continue their goodwill efforts, seven MUV locations in Spokane and Portland are offering free one-year memberships to these community members on the frontline. In addition, to opening up the opportunity to individuals that are not yet members, if a current member is on the frontline, he or she can pay the free one-year membership forward to a family member. While gyms remain closed currently, all individuals interested in obtaining the free membership can visit: https://www.muvfitness.com/first-responders-membership/.
On the web page, MÜV is taking contact information. Once the gyms are open, individuals that would like to redeem the membership can visit the gym and show proof of their employment. Registration for membership will be completed onsite.
The following individuals on the frontline from first responder and medical fields are eligible:
- Local hospital workers
- Medical center employees
- First responders
“There is no way to fully express our appreciation for the first responders, medical professionals and hospital workers who put themselves at risk every day,” said Jeff Carlson, partner at MÜV Fitness. “We want to take care of our community just as much as they take care of us.”
The brand wants to say thank you through providing health and wellness options as both the physical and emotional impacts of coronavirus take their tolls on healthcare and first responder professionals that are treating patients.
“Supporting local charities and giving back to our community is extremely important to all of us at MÜV. We are there for our communities and we feel like extending our heartfelt thank you to individuals on the frontline continues that commitment,” added Carlson. “Community involvement is at the very heart of our culture. We encourage others to pay it forward as well.”
Amid the pandemic, MÜV has remained dialed into the needs of its extended communities. The company’s leadership team has been active in finding ways to support local organizations, working closely with food banks, and on a daily basis it is evaluating new and meaningful ways to make a difference.
Likewise, MÜV is communicating several times a week with its valued team members to ensure they are home and safe with their families.
The clubs are paying close attention to local, state and federal guidelines, and will welcome back members as soon as possible. When they do open back up to members, guests will be welcomed to refreshed clubs. From spruced up locker rooms to repainting around the club and other improvements, the gyms will be prepared for its members.
