DETROIT – On Friday, a federal judge ruled that gyms in Michigan can reopen on June 25th.

The ruling was made by U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney in the Western District of Michigan after a lawsuit was filed by the League of Independent Fitness Facilities.

The judge granted a preliminary injunction against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order that closed gyms across the state.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s office said they will be fighting that ruling.

In Royal Oak a gym has opened its doors in an attempt to beat a Guiness World Record for getting fit. They’re hoping they can officially open next Thursday.
