I know right now many of us are adapting to our new normal. Parents are juggling home schooling and work from home. Teachers are doing their best to keep up with the learning needs of students using a completely new platform for instruction. Some people have lost their job and are filing for unemployment. Our beloved local businesses are closed. Others families have a spouse titled as an essential worker, and they are putting in overtime. Thousands of men and women are first responders or medical staff who are risking their lives everyday. I don't think anyone has it easy. I think, for the most part, there are still feelings of worry, anxiousness, and stress for millions of Americans as we face all our unknowns with the continuous spread of COVID 19. There just doesn't seem to be any sense of normality or light at the end of the tunnel. The big question at hand is: when will this all end?
I worry about the virus almost daily. I have some days that are better than others, but it's like a thorn in my side: a nagging pain. Now, even though it is a worry, I have gotten to a place of feeling more in control of how I handle all the unknowns. I have really stepped into the mantra: FAITH OVER FEAR. I think that's so important right now. We cannot live in fear or worry too much about things we cannot control. We must remain in a state of FAITH. Living with fear and too much worry are negative stressors, which will only negatively impact the immune system and wreck havoc on fitness goals. It is so important that we stay positive as much as possible. Also, do what you can to control what you can. For example, practice caution around others and use incredible hygiene. We also need to maintain eating extremely healthy and exercising. Proper nutrition, exercise, and adequate sleep are vital to keeping any person healthy. These three things will also keep you HAPPY.
Right now, I am offering MINIMAL EQUIPMENT workouts for just $25 a month. Each purchase will provide you with enough circuits for four full weeks. These plans come with a list of materials, links for purchasing products, and links for videos to demonstrate any movement you may be unfamiliar with doing.
I am also offering live, virtual training sessions. One-on-one sessions are scheduled for 30 minutes or 45 minutes. They are high-intensity boot-camp style.You don't need much equipment, if any. Dumbbells are really all that is required and a device with internet connection. I will literally be working out with YOU!! These sessions are $25 for 30 minutes and $35 for 45 minutes. Group sessions of 2 or more people are $8 per person for 30 minutes and $12 per person for 45 minutes. Talk about fun and making a connection. I will inspire you to love working out from home and seeing the results you're after. Plus, your time with me will get your mind off anything worrying you.
Here I am feeling good post workout. I literally train in my little, Bay Area apartment in our entry way. I use bands and dumbbells and I get a great training session each time. I love the big mirrors in my entry way, too. They remind me of the gym. I put my headphones on and I just get lost in the ZONE!
Many people loved going to the gym because they loved the group exercise classes and the energy of training around other people. However, we are all faced with a real serious situation requiring us to STAY HOME. If you need support with at-home workouts, or want to feed off the energy of working out with another person then TRAIN WITH ME! I'll show you how intense and challenging an at-home, minimal equipment training session can be if done right. My circuits can be done literally anywhere: outside, your living room, or your garage.
