Straightright Boxing & Fitness COVID-19 Update
How does it affect your gym?
Pursuant to an Order of the Governor of the State of Arkansas, all gyms in Arkansas must be closed to prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus. Accordingly, Straightright will be closed until further notice at all locations.
March 29, 2020:
We want to update you all on Straightright Boxing & Fitness gyms as we continue through this unprecedented time of uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic. Following the directive from the Arkansas governor and Arkansas Department of Health to close all fitness facilities, Straightright gyms will remain closed until at least April 17.
As you can imagine, this is a hard blow for our business, as it is for all businesses.
We feel the best approach to this most unique circumstance, with the most current information we have on gym closures, is to bill all members for their full amount of April dues, as we would in a typical month. We would then issue a credit for these dues in equal increments over the remaining nine (9) months of the year, ending in December 2020. Here is an example of what this would look like for our Gym Plus members.
Gym Plus monthly membership dues = $99.99
April membership dues monthly credit = (11.11)
May - December membership dues = $88.88
Our members accepting this proposal will drastically help us to maintain positive cash flow, continue to be able to pay our coaches and keep Straightright afloat while our doors are closed. If you would like to discuss your account specifically please contact your gym manager/coach. We miss seeing you all!
Hoping you all are enjoying our social media workout videos, challenges and other posts. We are excited to roll out our virtual classes for our members in the coming days. Watch your text and email for more details on this! Stay in workout mode, work on your technique and stay safe!
As we learn more about this ever changing pandemic, we will communicate with you through email, text, social media platforms and at www.straightrightfitness.com.
Straightright Boxing & Fitness Staff
Founder & Head Coach Kevin Lightburn & Little Rock Head Coach Anthony Tucker
Hi, I'm Kevin Lightburn, owner & founder of Straightright Boxing & Fitness. I would like to personally welcome you to our Straightright family.
I've been fortunate to have been around boxing for over 35 years. In my first competition ever, I became the Iowa State Golden Gloves Champion. From there "Boxing 4 Life" became my motto, and I went on to become the National Golden Gloves Olympic year Silver Golden Gloves Champion, a two time Kansas City Golden Gloves Champion, a National P.A.L. Silver Medal Champion, and achieved a ranking of 7th in the nation for amateur boxers. I've trained champions from top ranked amateurs to former world champions. With this knowledge of both boxing and fitness, I decided to share my passion by creating Straightright Boxing & Fitness. Our classes are designed to energetic, fun, and never the same. We train all fitness levels, from the top athlete to those who have never thought about putting on boxing gloves before. These workouts really are for everyone!
