Exercise is crucial right now and I think it's going to become even more prevalent as the time passes.", said Melissa Whitmer, a co-owner of the business along with Tara Poche.

In addition, the facility is the first fitness center to deploy the Integrated Viral Protection air system which is proven to kill COVID-19, according to the IVP Air website.

Opening up America starts with using proven technology to make the air we breathe safe and viral free. IVPs Biodefense System is a public health game changer as it is the one and only filtration system proven to kill COVID-19 in the air, instantaneously along with other biological threats, such as influenza, making high risk areas, such as a fitness facility like Crush NTX, a much safer and healthier environment. saidDr. Garrett Peel.
