Ian Smith of Atilis Gym on $10,000 Per Day Fine

The Dom Giordano Program
Wednesday, August 5th
Ian Smith, owner of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, NJ, joins the Dom Giordano Program for an update on the situation which went viral, in which the owners of the gym continue their months-long standoff with the state of New Jersey over reopening during the Coronavirus pandemic. Last night, Smith and co-owner Frank Trumbetti appeared in a contentious interview on CNN with Chris Cuomo, in which they tried to get the message across that they shouldn’t be villainized. Smith and Trumbetti have been targeted immensely by Governor Murphy, now with threats of a $10,000 a day fine for remaining open. Also, Smith reinforces the notion that he and Frank have wanted to work with the state of NJ to get through this controversy, yet have met a number of dead ends. (Photo by Mark Makela/Getty Images)
