WHEN I ASKED THE CEO WITH THIS MOVE SAYS ABOUT THE SITUATION HE REPLIED, “IT SAYS WE ARE FIGHTING FOR OUR STAFF MEMBER NEEDS. WE WILL DO ANYTHING POSSIBLE TO BE A VIABLE BUSINESS DURING AND AFTER THESE CRAZY TIMES.” THE GIANT WHITE TENT THE LATEST SYMBOL OF WHAT THESE TIMES LOOK LIKE FOR INDOOR GYMS.
