Temporary Closure While the Shelter-In Directive is In Place
Dear Members, Staff, and Friends,
When I wrote you last week it appeared that our business operations would be temporarily interrupted for a couple of weeks. Each day that has seemed to change. What has not changed is our commitment to you and our staff’s health and safety. Unfortunately, we will remain closed until Governor Newsom lifts the stay at home directive.
To keep you Living Fit and Living Better, it’s important that we continue to provide the best exercise routines possible. You’ve been coming to us for 39 years and now it’s time we come to you! Currently, we are providing 90+ at-home virtual workout classes with Les Mills that are accessible anytime day or night.
As of yesterday, our instructor, Toni Kuhn, launched her Mat Fusion Classes LIVE online via ZOOM with more classes from other instructors and trainers to follow. Use the button below for a link to our supplementary online class schedule. Think about it, for the first time you can work out with us in your pajamas, and no shower required! I expect all of you to come back healthier and fitter, as we all have more time for exercise! You can even add these programs to your child’s home school physical education requirements. Remember, in these difficult times exercise helps relieve anxiety, stress, improves sleep, builds the immune system, increases energy, and makes you look better, which is a good thing since you’ll be spending more time with your spouse or significant other!
Unfortunately, one thing we will currently have to put on hold is Outdoor Fit. Reports have indicated that local trails have seen increased traffic and maintaining safe social distance would be problematic. Additionally, State authorities are going to be limiting access to some park areas as some people are not following the directive to shelter in sufficiently. We don’t wish to put people at risk so we will be postponing all current hikes.
So, as I close this letter, as uneasy as it makes me feel, I need to ask for your support. Our desire is to keep our employees in place. Nearly half of them have been serving you for over 10 years! Our staff is our greatest asset and I believe they set CACFit apart from other gyms. To ensure that CACFit opens as soon as the ban is lifted, we must keep our great team in place. CACFit has other obligations, as well, some will continue during our closure. Staying current is crucial to our rapid reopening.
I want you to know we are doing our part. Without solicitation, each of our investors called and told me to stop their monthly dividend payments until we reopen. Our local bank, First Northern Bank and Juanita Mercado, within 48 hours of application approved a line of credit to help us with working capital and get through the next payroll. I have already submitted a loan package to the Small Business Administration Disaster Relief and have been told approval will take 2-3 weeks.
I understand that many of you are in the same financial situation as we are and if keeping your membership is a burden call or email us and we will freeze your membership free of charge until we reopen. Additionally, we know you need to exercise now more than ever so we will provide the online workouts even while on freeze. You can contact CACFit Monday through Friday 9 AM to 5 PM or email us at email@example.com
Thank you for your continued support. I will close with some of the heartwarming responses we are receiving from our members.
“U guys are GREAT! I am keeping my membership until u open again, even if this ban lasts longer.”
“We’ve been members for 30+ years & will remain faithful to “our gym”. Let’s hope this will pass soon & we all can go back to our normal lifestyle. Wishing you the best.”
“FYI, did the online class with Toni this morning & it was excellent!!! Thank you so much for providing us this opportunity to keep in shape.”
We will get through this and come back Stronger!

Our Message, Our Mission, Our Promise
We have helped change the lives of our members so they can live the life they want to the fullest! We don’t believe that exercise is an end but rather a means to an end. Recently, I was on a hike to the top of Mount Ballie with my wife. When we reached the summit we were overjoyed by the breathtaking view of the Fall foliage lining the East Coast. It was there that I was reminded again how keeping fit over the years has helped us enjoy life to the fullest. Now in our 60’s we continue to wish the very same for our members.
We originally opened Courthouse Athletic Club (CAC) because of my love for racquetball. Even back then, I exercised to keep in shape to play racquetball (and perhaps vanity played into that as well). We love hearing stories from our members telling how a healthy lifestyle has helped them live the lives they desire. Being fit has a different meaning for each of us; one of our members recently trained to climb Mount Whitney and were able to reach the summit! Another member, a Grandmother whose desire was to play with her new grandchild, worked hard to lose weight and increase energy and now can do just that. These are the very reasons that we opened the old CAC back in the day and it’s precisely why we are still in business today.
Our goal continues to develop programs that will enable our members to get the results they desire in the shortest possible time so they can spend more time enjoying the life they desire.
Join us where friends, fun, and fitness come together!
