Post 3-30 3pm
Reminder to check here a few times weekly for more workouts and meetings. See below [post 3-26] to obtain the current session. This week I am taking appointments for PT home programs via Skype or Duo. I want to help with your personal goals. I am also very concerned that you all work around any pre-existing injuries. I have had multiple requests for triceps and for "bra-fat" help lol, so I will do Instagram tutorials for those this week rather than sending to each individual. Regarding Instagram, I have a personal request. Please join me in my #nohatefromhome campaign. Remember when Instagram was just fun stuff, kittens, and party pics? Several members have told me they are done with Instagram because of all of the hate and politics. Of course everyone has the right to free speech and of course we can say, "Simply don't follow me"; but as one member put it; "I can un-follow, but I can't un-see", and I will now look at that fellow member in class VERY differently. I have been told of members posting Evers hanging from a lynch rope with horns on, Trump with a bullet in his head, and laypersons pushing their politics.. This is all very distressing to say the least and won't uplift anyone. In my day, the hate that mortified me was directed to ethnic hate, gays, gay clubs, and more. Looking back, those haters are now mortified by their behavior. I haven't seen any of these Inst posts as I do not follow any members or instructors. I just follow businesses. I do hope you will continue to follow the shoppe as I will keep it professional, and un-follow any haters or those posting suggestions of death. For those of you posting negatively - consider how your shoppe family will feel about you when we are all together again. Our rights have been taken away, for us, regarding social distancing responsibilities so... possibly consider monitoring use of social media rights on your own? One idea may be to track your daily minutes on social media and devote the same amount of minutes daily researching how to correct underlying diseases - cholesterol, diabetes etc and improve your numbers and your parents numbers. All I can do is put the ideas out there, and pray for kindness. Spread the word ladies for all to join your gym in the #nohatefromhome campaign. Feel free to mention the Shape Up Shoppe as the #postpositivegym :) On that positive note - we have 56 doing the home workouts and I have been told it is helping your mental wellness as much or more as your fitness wellness. I am so happy, that is what I was hoping for! I would love to see a pic of you doing it, or a 10-second video sent via Inst. I miss you all and am working on another workout for you. LOVE PEACE KINDNESS HEALTH j ...and hopefully the last drama filled update. Let's sweat!
Post 3-24 7:00pm: CLASSES IN YOUR HOME!
To be prepared to workout to the class video as soon as tomorrow evening [if there are no glitches] be sure you are familiar with YouTube. If you could workout to it on your TV or laptop it would be easier to see obviously. Find a space where you can move around a bit, but I will do the routines stationary just in case your area is small. I still expect you to work out hard and I may have to use profanity even though it is lent. I will do my best. Rather than listing it as "Private" I will have a viewer link for you. That way you do NOT need to have your own YouTube account. You can simply enter the secured link which will keep it available only to members. I will also be offering several live SKYPE nutritional chats NEXT week, inviting 5 people to each session.. If you are interested in joining in on the chat, download Skype to your phone and email me your cell number so I can easily add you to the group[s]. I will post more about this soon when I have the days and times For now be ready to sweat to the current session and look forward to the Easter session in 2 weeks! :)
Basic dumbbell moves and core ideas will be posted on Instagram after a short break. People are getting a little Insta Obsessive right now, and getting a little goofy too....how about giving your eyes a little break from screen time.
