COLORADO SPRINGS — There's no arguing that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed a massive portion of our daily lives.
In the midst of these changes, many local businesses are finding ways to overcome and adapt to keep their doors open, while at the same time, help those around them.
Similarly, businesses hit hard are reporting a tremendous outpouring of support from the community.
This outpouring reminding all of us that while this global epidemic has changed so much, it HASN'T changed people's desire for community.
This is We're Open Colorado, a segment dedicated to highlighting local businesses that are still open and finding unique ways to serve the community.
With all of this in mind, let's take a look at Crossfit Bonnie and Clyde, a Colorado Springs gym that is working to provide online workout sessions via Zoom and offering a "pay what you can or what you want" option so that those who are struggling financially can still have access to guided workouts.
"It's not about the money anymore," stated Lisa Vazquez from CFCB, "for us it's about keeping everyone mentally healthy and physically healthy, especially when there's some virus [going] around town."
The organization is offering three sessions each day and believe that those involved benefit not only in a physical way, but in a community aspect as well.
Crossfit Bonnie and Clyde hopes to continue offering their online sessions as a pay what you want/can through the duration of the crisis.
"Why not do it," asked Clint Jordan of CFBC, "why not do it if we can, and we can. So why not?"
