Bellmawr council revokes Atilis Gym's business license, owner says

The business license for Atilis Gym has been revoked following a council vote, according to co-owner Ian Smith.

Ian Smith took to Instagram Tuesday night to share that Bellmawr council voted 5-1 to revoke their license. 

Smith and Frank Trumbetti have reopened countless times in defiance of the state's shutdown order on gyms and fitness centers and were arrested last month.

The co-owners have long argued that the wording of the order would allow them to open up for members only, and not the general public. When the gym first reopened in defiance, gym staff had taped off workout stations and operated at 20% of the building’s capacity; meaning about 44 patrons at a time. They also were requiring patrons to wear masks unless they were in the middle of lifting weights.
