October Restrictions Update
With today’s announcement that the country will go into another lockdown period, we know that it means we all have a hard time ahead once again. We hope it will not be too long until we can get back into the gym as against all odds we’ve been having a wonderful season with our athletes.
Our extra conditioning has made every athlete in the gym stronger! We’ve had so many athletes hit personal goals, pass their levels and become better overall athletes. Goes to show what you can do when the chips are down. We’re proud to share that with you.
Here’s what happens now:
We are reiterating that all club accounts will be frozen until the club reopens again. Whether you are on week 10 of your term or week 1, you will still be able to access the remainder of your term when we reopen.
This coming week, we will be giving our coaches a very well earned break. We’ve been open since June 29th 6 days a week, and they have been blowing it out of the park. We couldn’t be prouder of our team this season and we know the kids love them – Ola, Aileen, Caitlin, Wiktoria, Molly, Caoimhe, Jayleesa, Fiona, Marie, Jamie and Hilton all doing our very best to keep our athletes safe and remain in sport.
Starting from October 26th, we will be launching our online offering once again but in a different format. Everyone is somewhat “Zoomed out” so we will start the online classes as Facebook/Instagram live sessions that all athletes can join whenever suits best. We will offer a mix of Gymnastics, Tumbling, Dance and Ninja, along with specialty classes such as handstand focus, TikTok specific routines, jumps, flexibility and of course conditioning. We will then upload the class to our Youtube platform so you can watch them again any time.
We advise all competitive athletes to attend a minimum of 3 conditioning classes per week. They will be broken down into full body conditioning twice per week, endurance training once per week and cardio training once per week. All athletes can join in if they wish. These sessions will be mandatory (3 per week) for elite athletes. We will offer some limited zoom sessions each week to keep club members feeling connected and you can see what the coaches are up to on our club Snapchat where we’ll be updating our carry on every week day.
Marie will also be working to promote mental health and wellbeing while we are closed for athletes and parents. We’ll follow up with more details soon.
Coming into the winter months without sports is a scary prospect. Stick with us and we can help our athletes to get those endorphins flowing through their brains! Start this one on the right foot – remember all the promises to get fit etc last lockdown…. Make a plan to stick to this time. It may be more than 6 weeks, make sure you have something to show at the end of it.
Remember we are freezing all accounts so there is no charge for any of our online classes. We’re making them available to the public as so many of our athletes last season were uncomfortable with zoom so hopefully we can reach more of our members this way.
We’d like to wish you all the very best, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support this term and before. It’s shown the very best of people and we love being part of this club.
