Another business casualty: Snap Fitness in Howell closing its doors for good

Another Livingston County business has not survived the COVID-19 shutdown.

Snap Fitness in Howell, located in the Jonna’s Market plaza at the corner of M-59 and Michigan Avenue, announced on its Facebook page last week that it will not be reopening. The business wrote:

Over the past 10 years we have greatly enjoyed our relationship with all of our Members. Due to the recent pandemic, and the new restrictions unfortunately we will not be re-opening. We greatly enjoyed being apart of the community and helping change life’s. We wish you the best!

This is at least the second gym in Livingston County that won’t be reopening because of the pandemic. Maximus Fitness Center in Fowlerville is also closing its doors for good. With all of the equipment and computers that these business have in their possession as they close, they have reported that they will be surrendering most of the electronic equipment to an electronics recycling firm that can better take care of and dispose these materials.

A federal judge ruled last week that gyms in Michigan can reopen on June 25, but Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is appealing the decision, saying they should remain closed.
