FREE Live Stream Fitness Classes to Stay #HealthyAtHome During the Pandemic: A week in review

Friday, June 05, 2020




"Your expertise and professionalism is just the start. What keeps me committed every weekday 11+  weeks later is your commitment to us to keep us healthy and sane.  Your positive attitude and great laugh start my pandemic day right!" 
 ~ Local Mom, age 51

** Local Mom has attended FREE Fitness Escape Classes for Advanced/Intermediate classes since Day 1. I'm so proud of your commitment - perfect attendance! Local Mom, thank you for being my workout buddy 5 days a week, for 11 weeks (and counting) . 


Every day for 11 weeks now, I've been hosting 2 30-minute Live Stream Virtual Fitness Classes for Advanced/Intermediate and Beginner/Seniors.  On April 20,  we've partnered with PAFCOM-NJ and Horizon BCBSNJ to bring home fitness to a larger audience.

Today marks the end of week 11. This week ( just like last week, and the weeks before) is emotionally overwhelming. We have feelings that are difficult to process, difficult to comprehend, difficult to express. We listen and hope to learn, be there for each other and do what we can do to make each day better -- the way we know how.

On one of my daily walks to town today, one of the residents asks, "Did people treat you with respect today?" 

I pray that the rainbow makes its appearance soon. 


Here are 5 videos from the Beginner/Seniors class and 5 videos from the Advanced/Beginner class - all recorded in real time, unedited.

I wanted to change the scenery, however, internet connection was unstable. 
The above video did not capture the cool down and breathing exercises.
Always remember to cool-down after a workout.
