Lockdown-Defying NJ Gym Offers Free Memberships to Unvaccinated Customers

'If it works, what are y’all so worried about?'

The New Jersey gym that has refused to comply with lockdown orders is offering free memberships to customers who don’t want to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Frank Trumbetti and Ian Smith, owners of Atilis Gym, responded to an announcement from Kristy Kreme that anyone who showed their COVID-19 vaccination card would get a free glazed doughnut “anytime, any day, even every day, through the remainder of 2021.”

They said they’d make a similar offer—but only to those who don’t want to get vaccinated.

Trumbetti and Smith have made headlines several times throughout the pandemic for resisting New Jersey’s attempts to shut their business down.

In August, New Jersey suspended the gym’s business license because the owners continued to operate.

When Trumbetti and Smith continued to allow customers to work out anyway, the police boarded up the gym. Trumbetti and Smith were then arrested for taking the boards down.

“The bottom line is we are fighting for our constitutional rights,” Trumbetti said at the time.

“We all have the right to make a living,” he continued. “We all have the right to actually do what we want to do as Americans. We are promised liberty. And they have actually put such oppressive restrictions on us that it’s just unacceptable to us.”

Smith tweeted Thursday that Americans who do choose to get the coronavirus vaccine shouldn’t be worried about those who don’t.
