Here we are 12 weeks into lockdown. I know I'm not the only one who really did not think it would be this long!
But, given the current guidance (or lack of), I thought I should give you all another update.
You may have seen that gyms and leisure centres MAY be able to re-open from July 4th. This is not guaranteed. But, what we do, in a community setting, does NOT fall under this guidance. And so it is highly unlikely that group fitness will be resuming in the same way any time soon. 😥 It is being suggested throughout the industry that September will be the earliest return for us, still with measures in place too.
The fitness library is now growing though, and I encourage all of you to jump in, get doing classes at home and, for now at least, embrace it! I've been getting so much great feedback from so many of you, especially now we have some of the favourites being added.
Just the same as you, I do miss us all having a laugh together, I love seeing all of you! However, not Burlexing for even a few weeks really made me realise how much I love it! (BTW, we now have Burlex in the library 😍) So get stuck in! Now that we can see other people, get together with your friend in the garden and dance away the stress! Make the most of being able to choose the time you do it! There are so many advantages to this current way of doing it!
I put out a post in the group yesterday regarding maybe looking to do a few outdoor classes. This would only be available to 5 people at a time, but multiple times could be offered. I have already had 2 very generous ladies offer space for this, however I would need to see if there is enough interest. So please do let me know if it's something you might want to do.
Become a Burlex Instructor
I know many of you absolutely love Burlex, and I know that unfortunately I can't cover all the areas where people would like classes. So, if you or anyone you know would love to become an instructor, we are holding a Burlex Instructor Training via Zoom on the 27th June. If you already have a Level 2 fitness qualification you can book direct here
Don't already have a qualification? Don't worry! We have teamed up with EMD UK to offer a duo qualification which means you pay once and can do both your Level 2 AND Burlex training giving you everything you need to get started in the world of fitness teaching.
Find out more here
Be quick though, booking for our training closes this Sunday!
So, now you've got started with doing online classes, why not treat yourself to a little merch! The store now has more items and I'd love for you to send in your sweaty selfies in some Amazoness gear! Grab yourself some treats 🤩
Please note that orders are taking longer than usual due to Covid-19.
A Little Something That May Help
Here is a link to a meditation for stress & anxiety. I know from talking to you guys, seeing my friends struggle and the wider social media community, that Covid has really impacted some people and taken it's toll on mental health. This woman is AMAZING, and I highly recommend giving it a go!
That's all from me at the moment, next up on the blog will be some more food ideas because...you know.... FOOD! 😂😋
Take care my lovelies xx
