NOTICE:  COVID-19 – Bigfork Valley Fitness Center

In response to COVID-19/coronavirus and directives from our local and state health agencies, and as a precautionary measure, Bigfork Valley will be closing our fitness center as of 8 am on 3/17/2020 until further notice and all Bigfork Valley group fitness classes will be cancelled until further notice. We will work with members on extending memberships once we reopen, so no monetary loss is incurred.

We are working closely with our community leaders and will continue to communicate with you when we are able to reopen the fitness center and resume classes.

We are following the Minnesota Department of Health’s recommendations and allowing them to manage all communications related to COVID-19 cases in the state of Minnesota.

Thank you for your support as we work to ensure the health and safety of our community. If you have any questions about the fitness center, please contact Sue Myers at 218-743-4275
