HOLTVILLE — Local gym owner Frank Valenzuela is in a bit of a crunch — a crunch that he might not be able to get out of without throwing in his sweat-soaked towel.

The recent statewide order to close all gyms and fitness centers due to COVID-19 concerns has forced Valenzuela, like all gym owners in the state, to close the doors to his gym, Vikings Gym.
