New Jersey gym defies state's coronavirus lockdown rules

More small businesses are challenging coronavirus state lockdown orders by getting back to work.

A New Jersey gym owner on Monday reopened his Bellmawr-based Atilis Gym against Gov. Phil Murphy’s orders.

Frank Trumbetti and Ian Smith, the co-owners of Atilis Gym, reopened the workout facility with social distancing measures in place and a crowd of supporters protesting the stay-at-home mandates.

"The government has failed at protecting our rights and failed at protecting our health. We are proposing an organized peaceful reopening of the state, not just our business,” Trumbetti said in a video posted on the gym's Facebook page.
