I hope this newsletter finds you safe and well. The weather has been nice to us and today sounds like it will be a scorcher! What a great day to get out and enjoy scenic Jersey in spring bloom. If you can’t get out and about, I’ve included an photo of some stunning wisteria for your enjoyment.
I am delighted to hear your stories of success in these challenging times. One lady in particular emailed me to tell me that just before lockdown she could hardly walk. I know that she has been trying to complete one of our free Pilates of exercise sessions on our YouTube Channel on a daily basis. Now she’s doing at least four miles a day and working with weights too. What a fantastic achievement!
This just goes to show that doing something small on a regular basis can achieve big results. Consistency is key.
If you are interested to see how you might achieve something new or challenging why not have a read of Clare and Kelsei’s blogs on adapting and habit snacking and stacking below.
Reopening the clinic
I know many of you are keen to get back in to see us. We are busy getting things in place for a return to work in the clinic when the lockdown levels ease. We do not have a specific date yet and this is not going to be an easy task.
The recommendation is that we still socially distance wherever possible. This will mean changes to the way we do things for physio, pilates and our strength and conditioning sessions. We will give you more details when we are allowed to open up. In the meantime, we are still here for you offering all of these 1:1 services online on zoom and other encrypted video links. Please call us 01534 490312, book online or get in touch with us firstname.lastname@example.org if we can be of any help.
Following the recent government directive last weekend, we think that handwashing, alcohol gel and face masks will become the new norm in clinics for you and for us. It will allow us all to get back to a new normal. Strength class aficionados could consider the masks as something to increase your training intensity in classes!
We all need a little bit of inspiration:
