What a year 2020 has been so far! In many ways, this year has felt excruciatingly long, but the fact that it is already November is, well, staggering. We have so much on our minds - Covid first and foremost - trying to be as socially responsible as possible; maintaining connections with our extended families and friends; navigating our new work/school situations; the American election (even up here); and finding ways to stay as active as possible.
As a personal trainer and fitness instructor for the better part of my adult life, I have thrived on the interactions I have with my clients, class participants, fitness peers and the YEG fitness community. So when we had to shutdown, all seemed lost. However, YEG’s fitness community is second to none. Which was never more clear when social responsibility meant gym closures and staying home. As a community, WE ROSE - supporting each other and our essential workers, donning our masks, and providing YEG with as many ways to stay active as possible via online options, social media or outdoor training. It was spectacular to say the least!
My family, my friends and my community are what propel me forward each day, knowing that at some point we will get through this, TOGETHER. Hopefully we can all continue to #LiveActive as we navigate through these tough times.
