The owners of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr continue to defy, and question, Gov. Phil Murphy's executive order to keep gyms closed.
In an interview on CNN, co-owners Frank Trumbetti and Ian Smith say the protocols to enter the gym are more extensive than it is to enter a store, and that all gyms aren't the same.
"It's a safe place to be,” says Trumbetti. “It is not a confined space. We actually have 25 foot ceilings in our gym. They have actually taken all gyms and they have actually considered them as one. They are not all equal."
There is still no word on when Gov. Murphy may give gyms the greenlight.
Earlier this week, the governor reduced the number of people allowed for indoor gatherings to 25 people, or 25% capacity, whichever is lower.
