**To the Sequim Community**
It comes with great sadness to inform our community that all classes starting this week will be canceled and we will be closing our doors and terminating all memberships effective 12am September 1st 2017. After careful consideration, we are unable to continue offering services in the same capacity to keep our operation going forward.
As you know, I support all health initiatives in our community and always will. As I have written in the past and expressed in the many conversations to our community, I believe that being healthy is the most important thing and people need to find the way that works best for them! I still believe this and I will continue supporting those initiatives.
Unfortunately, as a small business our expenses are exceeding the revenue. We have been working diligently on maintaining a facility that offers highly professional services in an atmosphere that is comfortable, quaint and friendly. With membership decreasing we are unable to maintain the same level of service our community has come to depend on.
While I believe our services are top quality, we are unable to pay high payroll wages, payroll taxes, federal taxes and our increasing cost to keep our facility open. We have been working towards offering different services in our community, that I WHOLE Heartedly believe in, but the amount of debt and decrease in overall membership has left us unable to continue going forward.
It has been a great honor and experience getting to know this community. I will continue working in this community and bringing great services. At the moment our family will be regrouping and deciding how to move forward.
I want to personally thank everyone who has supported the Sequim Gym and Northwest Massage. It has been an amazingly fun experience to share this part of my journey with you.
Please feel free to reach me directly with questions, comments or feedback.
