Like other fitness studios who have been fortunate to have the support of the local communities they serve, Tread Reading is no different. Owner Lori Haverty credits her team—and the clients they serve—with keeping virtual classes functional and fun during this challenging time. Haverty set up a live, virtual platform on the Tread website during quarantine, not behind a pay wall, that allowed people to exercise without an additional financial burden during this unique time.

A Mom’s Village
With 7,600 square feet of space, A Mom’s Village is what workout dreams are made of. With a “Mommy Clubhouse,” a boot camp studio, a barre/yoga studio, and a robust child enrichment program, this gym is so much more than your average place to exercise. In-person fitness classes resumed earlier this summer, and the team is looking forward to getting back to a more normal routine as allowed. During the closure, they hosted free, virtual music events to bring cheer to families. They also offered free or reduced rates to members in need and coordinated and made donations of baby monitors, cleaning supplies, and other things requested by nurses during the pandemic.
