LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Board 30 LV is a gym that caters to all types of people from young to old, fit to inexperienced with a special style of low impact workout.
However, the coronavirus pandemic got in the way of those services when it had to shut down for months.
Trainer Erin Wicker-Campbell says their loyal customers still wanted the workout but they couldn't legally provide it.
"People were asking, 'Is there any way you could do it, maybe?' And we said absolutely not," Wicker-Campbell said.
The closure was hard. Wicker-Campbell says trainers tried to stay in touch with their clients by providing virtual training, but it wasn't the same as the true in-person experience.
"Nothing like this has ever happened," she said. "we had no idea what the timing would be. How long it would last."
Fast forward, and the gym is back open. It specializes in variable intensity, low impact, resistance band workouts, and workers understand they have to do it safely.
The training is perfect for the elderly, who are susceptible to COVID-19 complications.
"We take health very seriously in this industry," Wicker-Campbell said.
She says the gym mandates masks up to the minute the workouts begin. Patrons are spaced further than six feet apart at all times, they eliminated communal storage spaces, bought air filtration in with equipment being cleaned between every class.
"All of these things are non-negotiable," Wicker-Campbell said.
Board 30 LV is offering certain specials to attract new customers, and you can make an appointment for their services on the Board 30 LV website.
