Thank you for stopping by. I’m very glad you’re here.
I am not able to offer in-person training or fitness classes right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I expect we may see a resurgence in cases in the fall/winter, so my current plan is to hold off on any new in-person programs at least through the end of 2020.
I plan to offer remote training at some point, but am not in a position to take that on at the moment. Don’t let that stop you in your quest be fit. Your health and fitness are more important now than ever.
You probably came here thinking of working out, but before you hit the gym here are some of the best things you can do for your mental and physical health:
- Eat well. As Dan John says, “Eat like a grownup.” Colorful vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, unprocessed protein…
- Get plenty of sleep. Sounds lazy? It’s great for fat loss and your overall health and energy level.
- Hang out with friends. Create a supportive social network for yourself. Get together for dinner with a few friends online each week, or arrange a couple of regular calls to catch up.
And yes, be active. Walk, lift things, push/pull stuff, play on the floor, and generally get out and move. Find activities you enjoy. Work in the garden, run around the neighborhood, hike in the hills, play tennis, go kayaking. Prefer to stay inside? There are also many excellent videos and online fitness programs available. Take care of yourself.
If you are considering joining a gym or finding an in-person trainer, great! The lowest baseline for health and fitness is to stay well. Familiarize yourself with the Covid-related requirements for fitness facilities in your area. Be sure the trainer or facility you choose has a plan to keep clients safe – and that they follow it.
