Due to the new Shelter in Place emergency set for the state of Georgia, only essential businesses will remain open until further notice. However, you can still support many of the local businesses in your area. Many local businesses are still able to offer drive-thru and takeout options, delivery services, and online orders. Please check the social media pages of local businesses to see what they offer during this time.
We pray this letter finds you and your family healthy and staying safe in these unprecedented times. Now that we’ve had a moment to get through the whirlwind of the last several weeks, we wanted to provide you with an update on your membership.
We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of our members and staff. That’s why we are following the guidance and recommendations set by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the state of Georgia in playing our part in the COVID-19 containment efforts. Per guidelines from the state of GA, Anytime Fitness of Sandersville is temporarily closed.
We sincerely want to thank each of our members for your support & loyalty! We are an independently owned & operated small business franchise with a local staff that depends on you to keep our doors open and provide our livelihoods so we can help each member with their health & fitness journey.
As you know, our motto is “Let’s make healthy happen.” We say “Let’s” (short for “LET US”) because our goal is to truly help you. In these uncertain times we feel we can do two things to help you right now..
1) We are freezing your membership payments. This simply puts a temporary pause on everything in regards to your gym membership and payment. Although many gyms are continuing to charge through this time, we felt this was a simple way we could support you. Once we are permitted to re-open, your membership will return to active status, your key fob will work, & regular membership fees will resume. Due to the billing company & bank processing timeline, all dues will be frozen effective April 6, 2020.
2) While the gym may be temporarily closed, we are working to provide as many resources for you as we can, so you can continue your fitness journey—anytime & anywhere.
From the Director
The staff and board of Lockerly are always focused on providing the safest and most enjoyable experience for our guests. To that end, please be assured that we are monitoring the dynamic and evolving situation with regards to the COVID-19 novel Coronavirus and all its potential impacts.
We want you to know that we take the health of our visitors, volunteers and staff very seriously. As an outdoor venue with ample fresh air to breathe, Lockerly Arboretum continues to be a great place to go to find respite, solace, and peace in these uncertain times. We encourage you to continue visiting Lockerly for your mental, emotional and physical well being. 30 to 60 minutes of moderate activity can help your immune system keep viruses at bay, can help clear your head and reduce anxiety.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Jennifer Pollard, Executive Director
