New Jersey shuts down gym that opened during state’s lockdown order

The defiant New Jersey gym that reopened this week in violation of Gov. Phil Murphy’s lockdown was shuttered Thursday by the state.

One of the owners of Atilis gym in Bellmawr posted about the shutdown on Instagram.

“So we arrived at the gym this morning to Governor Murphy’s dirty tricks, playing with his power in the health department,” the owner says in a video. “For right now, the gym will be closed. We have a full cleaning crew inside, once again going above and beyond.”

The video shows a bright orange “Notice of Embargo” notice by the Camden County Division of Environmental Health, as well as a four-page notice from the state, taped to the gym’s front door.

The video also says the owners plan to file a lawsuit against Murphy “first thing this morning.”

On Monday, Atilis Gym opened its doors in defiance of Murphy’s stay-at-home executive order. Cops issued a summons to owners Ian Smith and Frank Trumbetti — and then slapped them with a second summons for reopening the next day.

The gym opened for business again on Wednesday.
