How has your week been?
As an avid news-avoider mine has been quite a calm and pleasant place. I’ve gone about my days and week doing what I normally do, in a manner that I consider to be socially acceptable and good for both me and the greater community.
However, I do sense and see and hear all that’s going on from the rest of the world and it feels like panic.
Now, please don’t get me wrong. I am not dismissing the fact that the virus will spread and people will be affected. However, the coverage of the behaviour of other people is what I find tricky to cope with and don’t think it helps.
At FastTrack Fit Camp, COVID or not, my number one aim for everyone is to improve their health and well-being.
This current situation doesn’t change that and, in fact I feel that at FastTrack Fit Camp we are beautifully placed to help you keep a regularity to your fitness and wellness regime in this challenging time.
I am going to cover what I posted in our Facebook group earlier this week and then add why I feel it’s business as usual.
Just remember that this is Friday with Heidi. It’s my view, my opinion and if you don’t agree and choose to do something different, that is completely fine too. We don’t judge or hold grudges here.
Why do I think it’s business as usual…?
- We’re outside, you can ‘socially distance‘ yourself enough from someone and still be part of our group workout. If, as for COVID, you’re looking to reduce ‘droplet contact’, then give yourself a wide berth and get on with your workout. You just don’t have the luxury of that in a gym. It’s all about droplet contact there!
- We’re outside, your mental health will benefit from being active outside. If limited social interaction is nationally recommended then you’re going to need a fix of people from somewhere, even we introverts need a little bit of people from time to time. A fix of wide open space Fit Camp is just the place to get that.
- We’re outside, you don’t need to touch anyone, breathe anyone’s air, touch anyone’s mat or water bottle. Just think of that water fountain in the gym…
- Keeping active will keep you fit and able to fight infection better.
- Keeping active encourages us to eat better. Eating better allows us to fight infection better.
- Keeping active works on strong mental resilience. Strong mental resilience means we’ll want to look after ourselves with good food, social contact and exercise.
- Keeping active is better than starting to get active after a period of inactivity. Keep moving as much as you can.
I could go on.
Just know that I am taking the risks to those at risk seriously, but for the rest of us we need to stay well to be the ones who go to work, to keep things going. We can’t all be ill. Who’s going to make dinner?!
Use common sense. Carry on sensibly and I look forward to when we can talk about the weather again.
Two events coming up:
Wednesday 18 March at 19.00-20.30 I am running a Metabolic Balance information evening. Come and learn how you too can improve your health status, inflammatory conditions like high blood pressure, low immunity, diabetes type 2, heart disease, menopause symptoms, fatigue, depression and much more.

And then in May we have our third Devon Walking Weekender event. It’s a truly glorious weekend of coastal walks, relaxed outside stuff, good food, good company and a step out of normality. We have three unexpected spaces from clients who can now no longer come along. Full details are here if you’d like to know more about joining us…
