Yesterday we had an online coaches meeting and spent some time talking about leadership especially in times of fear and uncertainty.
Sometimes leadership requires making tough decisions.
We have made the decision to close the gym and move everything to online/virtual training for at least the next 2 weeks after the completion of classes today (Monday March 16th). With the stricter and stricter recommendations and guidelines coming through we think this is the best decision for the health and safety of our community at the gym and our community at large.
The really awesome thing is that when faced with difficult times there is also the opportunity for tremendous growth.
As your coaches we have the opportunity to grow our skills to extend our reach beyond the gym and inspire, teach, motivate, and support you all to continually improve your health and fitness and have fun doing it.
You have the opportunity to take a look at your habits and shore up any holes you might have in your health and fitness game, get the support you need, and come through this stronger than ever.
Here is how this will work:
- Each person will be assigned a 5VCF team member who will be your point of contact in keeping you accountable, making sure you are doing well, and continuing to get results.
- We will run live classes daily via Zoom that you can do with no equipment or stuff you can find at home (Live classes will run weekdays at 6am, 12pm, and 6pm). Link will be emailed out, posted to SugarWOD, our Blog, FB and Insta.
- We will also release workouts with movement demonstration and instruction daily so you can do the workout at another time if you can’t make the live online classes.
- You will get ongoing nutrition and health education through online meetings and check-ins
While this is a scary and uncertain time it will pass. I think we all want to be able to look back and feel like we made positive decisions that helped us deal with it and continue to move forward.
If we close ourselves off, don’t do the things in our power to keep ourselves fit and healthy in mind body and spirit, we will be kicking ourselves down the road.
Let’s look back and feel courageous, strong, and united.
As a small business owner this is a frightening time on many levels for me. I want to be able to support the 5 Valleys CrossFit community for many many years to come. I want to be able to continue to support our coaches, and staff, as well as my family.
The only productive path is forward and not just playing the hand we are dealt but embracing it and making the most of it.
I’m asking for your support during these times. Myself and the entire 5VCF team pledge to deliver maximum value in supporting you in being fit and healthy and coming through the other side stronger than ever.
Thank you so much for being a part of 5 Valleys CrossFit.
