Why should you exercise?

If you don’t then right now is the BEST you’ll be for the rest of your life. Every day you’ll get less strong, less flexible, you’ll have less stamina, and over one year, five years, ten years - what your body will degrade to if you can see it today, you will find it completely unacceptable. And there’s only one way to prevent the trajectory of your wellness from going down to that level of unacceptability and that is to implement SOME kind of exercise routine into your life. It does not have to be perfect, it does not have to be hard, it’s great if it gets a little better over time BUT just doing it is the very first step that you should take . Make it easy, make it fun and most importantly, do it on a regular basis.

This week marks the 11th week of the stay-at-home/self-isolation guidelines and orders imposed by our government leaders in order to flatten the curve, to slow the spread of Covid-19 and prevent the hospitals from becoming overwhelmed with more cases than they can handle.

Why host the daily morning classes?

I started the FREE FITNESS ESCAPE live stream classes because I wanted to have a structure, to provide my clients, family and friends a way to stay active and healthy while staying at home. 

The daily morning sessions ( 2 classes, 5 times a week, 80 sessions hosted so far) make social distancing bearable. They give us a reason to get up in the morning to see friends and acquaintances. The classes help us escape the uncertainties and anxieties that we are all experiencing at this time. They help us remember that we are not alone in this challenge.

What does a Fitness Escape Class look like?

Here are video clips from the first week of #FitnessEscape #StrongerTogether recorded on real time.

The 25-30 minute workout includes stretch, sweat & strength exercises that will get the blood pumping and the muscles burning.

Beginner - Total Body Strength

Intermediate/Advanced - Active Flexibility/Stretch
