Atilis Gym Owners Continue to Defy NJ’s Shutdown Orders

(CBS 3 Philly) The owners of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, New Jersey plan to open for business on Wednesday despite losing their business license.

On Tuesday night, the borough’s council voted 5 to 1 to revoke the gym’s license. The vote came after an hour-long hearing.

The two owners, Ian Smith and Frank Trumbetti, have reopened their gym several times, defying Governor Phil Murphy’s shutdown orders.

The duo has been arrested and have had contempt orders issued against them as they continually defied the orders. They say there’s no proof the gym poses any threat to the public.

Eyewitness News spoke to Trumbetti on Wednesday morning.

“It’s just a political attack that did not need to occur,” Trumbetti said. “Unfortunately, now instead of being on our side the Borough of Bellmawr is now an adversary, and they will be dealt with in the future and they will be served papers. The individuals that are responsible for that are now going to have to answer for what they’ve done.”

The owners say there is another court hearing scheduled for this Friday and that the gym faces a possible $15,000 fine each day for violating Gov. Murphy’s order.
