Wow what a week or two it has been. Life has become overwhelming at a completely new level with everyone’s stress levels on the increase.
In trying to work out how I personally cope and get through the restrictions imposed in response to COVID-19 my thoughts as ever revert to staying active and eating well. I know that only a limited amount is in my control but taking some positive actions significantly lifts my mood and improves my mental wellbeing.
We are in the fortunate position of having access to powerful communications technology and this can bring us together virtually if not physically. Inspire Me Fit already has a membership subscription page. This has enabled participants to supplement their classes with short online workouts at home with many adding a couple of extra 10 minute Pilates or HIIT sessions each week. The only dis-benefit being you need to be able to motivate yourself to login and workout.
Taking technology a step further, for the last 9 years we have run online fitness and fatloss programmes such as Body Reset, through a Facebook Group where workouts are performed via a Youtube video. The key to the undoubted success of this approach is that it allows regular communication between instructor and participant and more importantly between participants. At a time where we face isolation and lack of access to groups this technology can provide a lifeline. You have regular access to your instructor who will be there to motivate with regular prompts during the day and live broadcasts. Connect with like minded people and gain access to plenty of short, effective workouts, which can be done in your own home.
I am so pleased I took the time to learn and set up this technology as everything is already in place to help you stay fit and motivated through these unprecedented times. Furthermore, by next week we should be in a position to offer 'live' group classes via video conferencing. Of course the big benefit of you joining in the live sessions is your favourite instructor will as usual be checking out what you're up to and we can all communicate together.
For many people Coronavirus will have instigated financial worries. Understanding this we plan to cut our prices and offer further reduced rates for those who need it most. If you or someone you know has had a significant change to their financial situation we would like to help. Please contact Debbie for further details. We are a small business comprising local instructors who want to do what we can to help you while trying to survive the impact ourselves. Please hep us by sharing information and posting pics of you working out on our Facebook Page. The more support we get the more frequently we will be able to offer classes. Thank for all your help and support and stay safe.
