    This fundraiser will benefit


    from Mumbai, Maharashtra

This is Akshay Gajria, co-director of Transform gyms. We have a chain of gyms in India, with our prime focus in Mumbai. Our gyms have been made to stay shut due to Covid-2019 for over 60 days (as of this writing), long before the official country wide lockdown was announced. Due to the sudden lockdown, the biggest sufferers are our trainers, who depended on income received from the gyms to keep their house running. We managed to take care of them until April but since we work on a revenue based model and with the gyms being shut, it has become impossible for us to further pay our team of trainers. As responsible directors, we have been pooling amounts together from our individual sources to pay our staff but have exhausted our means.

With no cure in place, we do not see operations of our gyms resuming anytime soon. Even with a relaxed lockdown, and with gym environment being such a high contact zone, it would be prudent for the government to keep them shut. We ourselves are adhering to all government restrictions sincerely and would not want to be perpetrators in spreading this virus, which in-turn leads to unfortunate joblessness of our trained staff along with our means to make necessary payments.

As you know we all are going through this pandemic, it's being difficult for me and my family to meet both ends. Also my father is going through a health issues where in his medical cost too is on my shoulders.

- Anant Patil, Trainer at Vile Parle Gym

These are some of the messages we receive on an almost daily basis and it breaks our heart to see them this way. We have 7 gyms in total (listed below) and each gym has around 15 trained staff. They are all suffering due to the lockdown and without any means to support themselves, we fear for the worst. Hence, we have collectively decided to reach out to all of you, the people, to help bail our team and provide necessary assist to our pool of trainers.

Our centres:
Transform Gym Vile Parle (E) - 17 Staff Strength
Transform Gym Santacruz (W) - 17 Staff Strength
Transform Gym Kandivali (W) - 17 Staff Strength
Transform Gym Prabhadevi - 18 Staff Strength
