Looks like Dave Blondin may have to close Prime Fitness after all. The town of Oxford cut the power and water supplies to a gym that welcomed its members back in defiance of the state’s four-phased reopening plan.  Dave had been staying open despite being ordered to close because of the state’s reopening plan. Dave has racked up thousands of dollars in fines for violating Baker’s reopening plan and has said that he would go to jail, if necessary, in order to keep his gym open.

A protest calling for the gym to stay open is planned for Saturday.

**UPDATE** Dave Blondin just reached out to us. Despite the water AND power being off, the gym is STILL OPEN AND PEOPLE ARE STILL WORKING OUT! According to Dave “We have a water tank and porter potty’s and generators on the way”
