DANVILLE, Va. — Danville’s Workout Anytime franchisee Jerry Pugh held a 9/11 memorial stair climb on Friday, Sept. 10 to honor the victims and first responders of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

Located at 211 Nor-Dan Suite 1020 in Danville, firefighters and police, along with participating community members, used Workout Anytime stair climb machines for hour-long time slots with a goal to complete 110 flights of stairs ­– the same amount of floors first responders completed during the World Trade Center rescue mission in Manhattan.

“We’re proud to see our community coming together to honor the memories of those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, 20 years after the attacks,” said Pugh. “We want to show as much support for our local heroes as possible.”

In addition to the stair climb, Danville’s Workout Anytime offered first responders a special deal. Throughout September, all first responders are offered discounted membership rates – $25 instead of $29 for a premium membership and $15 instead of $19 for a basic membership with no enrollment fees.

There was also a free lunch available to first responders.

Workout Anytime is dedicated to ensuring the safety of Memorial Stair Climb participants and preventing the spread of COVID-19. In addition to adhering to the brand’s Clean Routine standards, each machine was properly wiped down after each individual climb.

“As we host our 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb, our health and safety guidelines are designed to keep our clubs sanitized and clean,” said Pugh. “Living a healthy lifestyle – both mentally and physically – has never been more important, and we’re committed to finding ways to be a resource for our members as we continue to navigate this time together.”
