Owner Stephen Halloran said they made multiple changes to make sure every client and instructor could stay safe.

“That goal post for reopening just kept being moved and moved,” Halloran said. “I’m in South End. This is an expensive place to do business. I love my community and I’ve been here for eight years. This wasn’t a choice. I had to open.”
