Enough Of The Fitness Stereotype
The managing director of FitX fitness center, Markus Vancraeyenest has advocated for an end to old cliches for fitness and sport in the corona crisis. He urged concentration on physical and mental well-being instead of an emphasis on six-packs and muscular body, especially for beginners. In his talk during ISPO Re. Start Days, he stated that feeling good is now more important than looking good and this would be the new trend in the fitness industry.
Vancraeyenest affirmed the whole beauty of fitness should be centered around the mind rather the body. He stressed that during this period, the mindset of people coming to fitness centers should be “feeling good instead of looking good”. Considering the impact of the corona pandemic on the people, the popular fitness stereotypes should be set aside. This is good news for the fitness industry as people are more concerned with health and well-being.
Lampard provides Kante fitness update and praises Chelsea midfielder Jorginho’s ‘professionalism’
Lampard announced that N’Golo Kante, French defensive the midfielder is temporarily out for two games or more due to a hamstring injury. He sustained the injury during the London derby encounter with Watford, ending in a 3- 0 victory on Saturday evening. Subsequently, he would be out for the weekend premier league game against Sheffield United.
Lampard confirmed that Kante would be out for a week at his pre-match conference and hopefully he would be back the following week. He also stated that Kovacic and Tomori are still not ready. However, Kante’s absence could open the door for Jorginho who has not played a single game since the 2019-20 campaign resumed but Lampard remains skeptical as to whether he would make his next squad. Although Lampard acknowledges his hard work and professionalism during training, it seems the Italy international has fallen from favor. Perhaps Lampard might want to reconsider him following Kante’s absence.
Club16 takes over two former Steve Nash Fitness locations
Club 16 fitness gyms will now take over two locations belonging to Steve Nash Sports Club later this year in Richmond and Brentwood. This rare opportunity came knocking club16 door when Steve Nash Club locations could no longer afford rent and they plunged into bankruptcy. Lawson, the CEO, and president of Club16 said closing the deal at the two new locations would be a blessing despite COVID-19 related challenges. Since those two locations would bring club16 to limelight which they had wanted so badly, now they have the chance to utilize the facility.
In another development, club16 would not be competing SNFW Fitness B.C Ltd as they plan on dropping the name of Canadian basketball star Steve Nash from its brand. Consequently, the company is reportedly negotiating with unknown investors in a successful bid but the investors have neither been publicly identified nor has the deal been approved in court.

Attorneys argue for Mountainside Fitness, EOS Fitness to stay open despite Gov. Ducey’s orders
Mountainside Fitness and EOS fitness attorneys argue for their clients on the reason why they had to open against the state executive order during the COVID-19 pandemic. There was a short emergency hearing done telephonically with the Judge after the Arizona gyms were arraigned.
The lawyers argued via phone on July 6, that the state order declared on June 30 was arbitrary as gyms were not favored while others could go about their own business. The lawyers said it was baseless for the Governor to single out gyms to close down for 30 days in Arizona, while other businesses were treated differently.
The governor’s attorney argued that the high increase in coronavirus cases necessitated the shutdown order. The judge would make his ruling on Tuesday. Another defaulting gym is Life Time but has finally closed its doors on July 3rd.
