The Phoenix is a free, sober gym community that uses health and fitness to help people overcome addiction.
Due to the current shelter-in-place orders, however, its members are unable to continue their normal workout sessions together amidst the trying times of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Even without social distancing rules, the isolation that recovering addicts experience when they choose to pursue a new, sober lifestyle is profound—so in order to surround its members with support during these difficult times, The Phoenix is taking their classes online, continuing to meet in groups virtually.
Not only have the online meetings served as a source of comfort for The Phoenix’s members, they have also started welcoming sober social media users from around the world as well.
