Lynk: Fitness Center Needs Community Support

Letter from Randy Lynk

Fitness Center Needs
Community Support

As many have seen, there has been quite a bit of pushback regarding the announcement of FoxCare Fitness closing. I am among those who are a little dubious about my local healthcare provider when they decide that preventative care is not worth investing in. Particularly when that investment pays off most to senior citizens and other more vulnerable people in our community. I am hopeful with the pushback and news of collaboration with the YMCA that Bassett will be able to keep the facility open as is (or revitalize is so it can fully recover from the pandemic restrictions). Anything less, in my opinion, would be a failure to our community.

Plenty of letters have been addressed to Bassett leadership. I would like to address the community. We always encourage everyone to shop local to keep our community businesses thriving. We’re lucky to have some fine, locally-owned shops and restaurants in our area. We are also lucky to have facilities such as FoxCare Fitness. If you’ve ever been on the fence about joining a gym or taking a new step on your health and fitness journey, now might be a good time to do so. I get that with so many subscription services, another monthly fee is the last thing anyone wants. I can say from experience, though, that investing in your health gives amazing returns. On top of that, not only are you investing in your own health and wellness, but that of our community as well.
