May 3, 2020
Dear Movement Revolution Family,
Movement Revolution closed our doors on March 18th, 2020 due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic. The past 46 days have been some of the strangest times in our lives. One thing that I have discovered through this process is the importance of human connection, community, and physical activity for our social, mental, and physical wellbeing.
As you know, Movement Revolution is committed to building a strong and supportive community for our clients. We have been working diligently to bring you resources to stay active and strong during these trying times and that effort will not stop.
I am happy to announce that the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity has approved Movement Revolution as an “Essential Business” and granted access to re-open with limited services. As we explained to the Governor’s office, therapeutic exercise is vital and a medically necessary component to living well with a neurological condition. Our motivating factor for reopening is to give you every opportunity to stay active and participate in exercise. Your support throughout the pandemic and going forward will help ensure the ongoing viability of Movement Revolution and the care for our clients for generations to come.
I want you to know that the entire Movement Revolution team is here for you and we care deeply about your safety and well-being. We would not re-open without considering every possible scenario and opportunity to keep you safe and healthy. As of May 6th, 2020 we will be re-opening all locations under strict guidelines set forth by the local, state, and national recommendations on social distancing and personal protection. We’ve redesigned our facilities with “Personal Exercise Areas” (PEAs) where all equipment will be isolated, sanitized, and established with safe social distancing between you and anyone else in the facility. Our detailed policies and procedures can be found in a subsequent document and is available upon request.
We will continue to offer all virtual services including 1:1 training, classes, and new client evaluations, enabling us to stay connected or re-connect without a face-to-face meeting. Our in-person services include individualized training in studios at the Edgewater and Deerfield locations, as well as, and in-home sessions available in Deerfield, Chicago, as well as, West and South Suburbs of Chicago.
The world has changed, and change helps bring to light those things tremendously important to us. We are family and this family inspires me to continue to evolve this Movement Revolution that is built to enhance your health and wellbeing. Together, we will make 2020 a year where we all become stronger, better people through perseverance and hard work. We look forward to seeing you in person (with a mask on) or virtually in the near future.
As always- Think Big. Move Strong. Never Quit!
Eric Johnson & Movement Revolution Team
