BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (WAND) -- Gyms across the United States have been shut down due to COVID-19.

But it's what's being done at the "Be Strong" gym in Bloomington that is keeping members in shape at their own homes.

The gym allowed members before the stay-at-home order was in effect to go and sign out the equipment. Members took home over 40 thousand dollars worth in all.

Gym owner Drew Whitted, who served 25 months in Iraq and completed over 250 combat missions, says it's the right thing to do.
