Stretched Thin: Gyms Fight For Their Own Federal Relief | WNYC | New York Public Radio, Podcasts, Live Streaming Radio, News

Diane Hart, NAHF President and Executive Director, was recently interviewed by WNYC for a story "Stretched Thin: Gyms Fight For Their Own Federal Relief." You can listen to the story at https://www.wnyc.org/story/stretched-thin-gyms-fight-for-own-federal-relief/ or read the story at https://gothamist.com/news/struggling-gym-owners-say-theyre-left-out-of-pandemic-relief-despite-heavy-losses-from-shutdowns

Restaurants and entertainment benefited in the latest federal stimulus package, but gyms and fitness centers are still seeking help, even though they were also hurt by shutdowns.

VIRTUAL GLOBAL EMPLOYEE HEALTH & FITNESS MONTH
The perfect virtual platform to deliver health and wellness in 2020! (initiative is now available year-round and is translatable to global languages) May 2020 or any month of your choice!

TOGETHER LET’S MAKE VIRTUAL A REALITY!
GEHFM 2020 Initiative is ready to go – all we need is you! Join at www.healthandfitnessmonth.org and show your support for an active healthy world! It has never been easier or more important to keep moving, set goals and create sustainable change in your health and well-being. IGNITE and National Association for Health and Fitness amazing step-by-step toolkits provide outstanding guidance, ideas and tangible examples to ensure success for each participant. Be sure to share your #GEHFM activities and experiences on social media and engage with other participants.

Healthy Moments, Groups & Projects are the heart of GEHFM. From individual activities to corporate events, participants can enjoy health, physical activity and nutrition activities VIRTUALLY while maintaining social distancing.

Healthy Virtual Moments are focused on the individual and are occasions of healthy eating, physical activity and personal health goals which can be done in your home or safe outdoor environments!

Healthy Virtual Groups are small groups of participants who choose to virtually participate and track activities intended to last beyond the month of May - adoption of a group name would be awesome!

Culminating Project is a virtual event or series of events that promote wellbeing – (both physical and mental) personally or through the whole company or community where you live.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, you can safely participate in GEHFM and help stop the spread of the virus by avoid being exposed, wear masks that cover your mouth and nose and practice social distancing (leaving 6 feet between you and any person you come in contact with). Wash your hands often with soap and water; clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. Call your doctor if you think you’re experiencing symptoms. Visit coronavirus.gov for more information.

Wishing you continued good health,

The National Association for Health and Fitness Board of Directors proudly extends our Congratulations to Madam Diane Hart, our esteemed President and Executive Director on being honored with the 2020 Third Age Achievement Award from LifePath of Albany. LifePath’s mission is to provide the vital programs and services to the older adults in our community. The Third Age Achievement Award is not a lifetime award, instead, the award is designed to pay tribute to members of the Capital Region of New York State who have made significant contributions to our community after turning sixty. This award seeks to dispel the myth that getting older means slowing down.

The 60-plus stage of life can be a time full of opportunities to enrich our communities, pursue dreams and provide leadership. The Third Age Achievement Award honors individuals who have excelled in all of these endeavors.
