The company recently announced that in an effort to make their customers’ workouts more mindful, they would be not be showing any politically-charged or negative programs on the television sets throughout their facilities.
“The decision to remove the national cable network news stations results from significant member feedback received over time and our commitment to provide family-oriented environments free of consistently negative or politically charged content,” the company announced in a statement shared on Twitter. “It always is our goal to meet the majority of members’ expressed requests and we believe this change is consistent with the desires of overall membership as well as our healthy way of life philosophy.”

Practicing mindfulness throughout your day, and on a daily basis, means improved mental health and a more powerful ability to improve your every day.
