After the Goodlife Fitness announcement that some locations will no longer offer a childcare service for parents while they workout, several local residents have joined together to start a petition. While Goodlife Fitness has stated that they are only eliminating childcare services at facilities where the service is underused, local City Councillor Josh Matlow has said he’s calling on GoodLife to keep the programs open, not only because they’re being dismissive of their customers’ needs, but also because it’s just the right thing to do.
