Mountainside Fitness plans to reopen despite not receiving application approval

PHOENIX, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) – More than 1,100 Arizona businesses like bars and gyms have applied to state health officials to reopen. It appears at least one Mountainside Fitness plans to open next week, despite not getting approval from the Arizona Department of Health Services. Tom Hatten, CEO and founder of the gyms, was not available for an interview on Saturday, and their spokesperson did not release a comment.

The fitness gym directed Arizona’s Family to a letter sent to their members, which states that they have not received a response from ADHS regarding their application to reopen. Despite that, Mountainside said they plan to reopen during the week of August 24. The letter also states that they hired an outside health assessment company to certify their gym for reopening. The company is called Healthy Verify.

Healthy Retirement: Save by Being Proactive

Despite all the negative news about the state of retirement savings, 48% of us didn’t save more in 2018… and 13% of us actually saved less.

The shortfall isn’t just about money – it’s about our health too.

A new research report about leveraging your health to drive 401(k) contributions says you can boost your retirement savings to the tune of $100,000 or more simply by making better health choices.

The research indicates that people who take their healthcare seriously make better financial decisions and have more money to save.

High blood pressure – the plague of so many of us gray hairs – isn’t taken seriously by most. Twenty percent of those diagnosed with it don’t take their medication, and 50% stop taking it within six months.
