Well, it's been a bit of a week hasn't it?
We stopped our running and walking groups around 2 weeks ago. It wasn't possible to keep the recommended 2 metres apart, so with a very heavy heart we decided to postpone our groups until this is all over to keep everyone safe.
Happy Feet Fitness is our beloved business, we really do live and breathe it. What would we do? What would our clients do? Every one of them feels like a part of our family!
Our Facebook group has always been strong with a great sense of community, now was the time to take it up a gear, this was our way of staying in touch, motivating the members and most of all supporting them through this as best we could.
So we have started online classes, these are done live because we want to see what's going on. Rhiannon, who is also a Personal trainer, has a lot of experience teaching classes and knows how quickly things can go wrong, she watches us and can correct our technique if she needs to. It's ace!
The other benefit is that although she can see us, we can only see her, so when we are going in the wrong direction, or using the wrong leg, no one else knows we are going wrong. At the start and end of each session, we all get a chance to have a natter too, it's fab!
We are using the "live" facility on Facebook too, I have never used it before, Rhiannon always does it normally. Well, what do you know, I did my fist one and now I'm hooked! The feed-back from the group when we go live is that it's good to hear our voices, its strange what you miss isn't it, they don't usually like to hear our voices when we are saying "it's only a small uphill....."
I'll leave you with a few photos, and will be back next week.
Stay safe everyone x
