Hello Strength Squad! As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 impact on our local and global community, we have decided to go virtual to minimize unnecessary contact with others and slow the spread. There are two options to choose from: video chat sessions or online programming. The video chat option will use FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp, or Zoom so you can train "in person" with me. For online programming, we will use the True Coach app and you will be provided with 2-5 training sessions per week that are designed for you by me. More details for both options are listed below. VIDEO CHAT SESSIONS:
To prepare for your scheduled video sessions, please let me know any equipment that you have available to use. We can do a whole lot with only a yoga mat, but if you want to dust off something else that might be laying around - let me know and we'll work it into your training.
Sessions will be 45-minutes in length. If you're a current client, warm-up prior to the session start and we will get in a full 45 minutes. If you are a new client, I will teach the warm-up during the first several minutes of your session.
At the start of your session, you'll receive a call from me, if we're using FaceTime or WhatsApp. For Zoom or Skype, log in with the details provided to you via email.
Online booking is open - You can book up to 60 days in advance.
Please note: Your appointment reminder email may provide a location for our training - Please be assured that we are training virtually. 😉
Using the True Coach app, personalized sessions are available for you based on the equipment and space that you have.
Video tutorials as well as written descriptions of exercises are loaded into your workouts to make sure that you are confident during your sessions. Also, you can send videos to me for form checks and track your reps, sets, and resistance.
Plans include 2-5 days of training based on your preferences.
With the Social Distancing plan, you'll receive three weeks of training for an investment of $180.

Please take care of yourself. Social media is abuzz with movement challenges, creating to-do lists, implementing schedules, and the like. Check in with yourself.
Step outside when you can. Breathe in the air. Notice the squirrels chasing each other around the trees. Hear the birds singing their songs. Observe the leaves shifting on their branches. Wave and smile to a neighbor that is walking on your street.
Ground down. Set a timer to check in and ground through your senses. Try the five things strategy:
Notice your breath.Then, identify five things you can see. Find four things that you can touch. Notice three things that you can hear. Recognize two things that you can smell. Pinpoint one thing you can taste. Check your breathing again.
Rest. Even if you feel like you're not moving much, your nervous system is getting a workout right now, which can show up as anxiety, depression, worry, panic, and numbness. Move around. Do things that you want to do or need to do. Connect with others. And also, rest.
Pace yourself over the upcoming weeks. We will be riding waves of hope and fear. Let's stay connected + strong as we support ourselves and our community as best we know how. If you have any questions or concerns or need support please let me know. Hugs + High-Fives, Erin
