    "A significant event has occurred, perhaps the most significant event many of us will ever see. A complete restructuring of society is in progress, and it will have profound effects on businesses of all sizes in every sector of the economy. The fitness industry is one of the most heavily-affected sectors, with local and state governments relegating health clubs to 'non-essential' status because they have been exposed as recreational in nature. Jobs and investments are at risk, and a new approach to what we do is necessary. It is our approach at Starting Strength Gyms and our affiliates."

    In my humble opinion what would help the most is for training to be prescribed and covered as a health care item. Itís not recreation then, itís treatment therapy whatever you want to call it to improve someoneís health. It is ludicrous I can prescribe anyone PT, speech therapy, an MRI of their nose, a pill for anything but I canít prescribe them a NLP even though anyone remotely aware of what it is knows it has more benefit than most of the shit that is currently done.

    I would really enjoy listening in on Ripís call to the insurance company to get prior authorization for ďadditional treatments,Ē or to discuss how his reimbursement was reduced due to inappropriate diagnostic icd codes used to justify the cpt billing code.

    Great article, Rip. I'm hoping one of the extremely sparse silver linings that comes out of this response to the pandemic is that the fitness industry stays changed for the better because people who actually want to train realize what is going on at Globogym.

    No kidding. That would make for some serious entertainment. My favorite is the peer to peer to explain why saving someoneís life was necessary and couldnít wait for a prior authorization. Only to have an non clinical MD say well we are going to deny anyway. Medicine is fun.
