On Tuesday, July 21st at 10:30am, the Michigan Fitness Club Association (MFCA) has organized a fitness workout and rally on the Michigan State Capitol lawn. The event is intended to spotlight the benefits of exercise during this COVID-19 pandemic. Following the mandatory and ongoing closure of fitness centers and gyms throughout the state on March 16th, Michiganders have been left with few options for their regular exercise routines.

The MFCA has expressed concern that without exercise, individuals are facing health conditions that could worsen the effects of COVID-19. Given Michigan’s poor track record regarding obesity and heart disease, the state is in a very vulnerable position.

“According to the CDC, the leading factor in COVID-19 hospitalizations and complications is obesity, meaning Michigan has to get fit to survive the pandemic,” said Alyssa Tushman, Vice Chair of the MFCA. “It’s been four months since gyms have been shut down and despite availability of online and in-home workouts, Michiganders are losing this battle.”
 
The “Quarantine 15” often joked about on social media is no laughing matter. In fact, COVID-19 has led to a disastrous situation for people who struggle with weight. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), severe obesity increases the risk of a dangerous breathing problem called acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which is a serious complication of COVID-19. Also, people with severe obesity are more likely to have other chronic diseases and health conditions that can increase the severity of COVID-19.

“Exercise helps build immunity and right now we all need to make sure we’re as healthy as possible to help ourselves fight this virus. If you suffer from chronic diseases, including heart disease and diabetes, you’re making it worse by gaining weight,” said Tushman.
