Drew Whitted, owner of Be Strong Gym in Illinois, told his members that they could pick up gym equipment free of charge so they could continue training at home during the Covid-19 shutdown. According to Whitted the members picked up equipment worth of $40,000 in under two hours with help from the gym's staff. While the stay-in-place-orders are still active, Be Strong Gym is offering online training to keep its staff employed.
