Our View Regarding Kenosha’s Civil Unrest

We are so incredibly sad at the state of our beloved town right now. We are in disbelief at the events that transpired since everything that started on Sunday afternoon. This week has seemed like a twisted nightmare, and we are desperate for it to be over. 

First off, we want to apologize for any service interruptions, especially class cancellations this week, but obviously the safety of all of our members is paramount. We can’t risk you getting caught in harm’s way just for a workout, we will be here when this is all said and done. Thank you so much for understanding.

Secondly, Harbor Park Health and Fitness will continue to be a safe harbor – one where EVERYONE is welcome and treated EQUALLY and FAIRLY. To our members of color, you are free to come here and be unjudged and unbiased. You are free to let your guard down and be human. To our law enforcement members, you are free to come here and relieve the stress of your jobs. You are free to show our community that underneath your uniforms, you are amazing humans that truly do want the best for all of us. 

We believe that the divisive narrative pushed by mainstream media is doing nothing to solve our nation’s and now our beloved city’s issues. The only way we can make real, lasting change is to come together as one and to talk, listen and truly understand each other. And that is why we will continue to invite people of all walks of life under our roof, to come together, to workout together, to forge the strong bonds that we have for one another, and to move forward together.  

Let us be an example for our city, our fellow Kenosha citizens, and our nation.
