A pair of New Jersey gym owners who have repeatedly defied the "tyrannical" edicts of Garden State Gov. Phil Murphy, who closed gyms as part of the state's COVID-inspired restrictions, told Fox that they have racked up more than $1.2MM in fines for refusing to adhere to the state's COVID-19-related restrictions.
The co-owner of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, who have appeared in the past on air with Tucker Carlson and others on Fox as libertarians and conservatives opposed to the strict lockdowns rallied to their cause, said that the state and the governor have "thrown everything he possibly could to shut us down."
They've also been given roughly 60 citations, and both have been arrested. Every single day they open their gym in violation of the state order, the team rack up another 16K in fines.
