Chair Based Fitness
Dan has been running chair based class throughout lock down on line,he currently has 20 members taking part, this has proved to be so popular that dan now has two classes running per week at the request of the members,
The members are loving the class as they feel they are not sat at home during lockdown doing nothing,
Most have been shielding during this pandemic and they have been very thankful to camm street for keeping them going both mentally and physically,
Being able to talk to dan and engage with others outside of their household has stopped feelings of loneliness and isolation and has really helped them through this pandemic
Pts I currently have 6 pts on line, but one has stood out more than anyone even though they are all doing fantastic,
Her name is Naomi,
Naomi has been a member of camm st just over a year having pts weekly, she needed to lose weight and has anxiety, since lockdown started Naomi has never given up, she has gone from a size 18 to 14, she has pts weekly on line and does every class and zoom session, she has worked amazingly hard,
Naomi Lawrence statement:
I found the classes and pts really enjoyable. With someone who suffers with anxiety on a regular basis these workouts with bevs support have helped me come off my medication as stay of it during lockdown. Bev is really supportive with my progress and making the workouts progressively harder to push my progression. She has really motivated me to keep going and push through.
Mother in law statement
I would just like to say a big thank you for all the support you have given Naomi during the lockdown the regular workouts that you have sent to her to help keep her on track has helped keep her spirits up and anxiety at bay. This has been a huge help she has been even more encouraged since the zoom classes have started these have given her a huge boost thank you so much your support has been really appreciated.
Naomi husband statement:
It has boosted her confidence and she has her bubbly personality back 😊
We currently have over 25 people in each online class all different abilities,
The members who have come to the classes have totally enjoyed them, it has given them a new way of training and they can see each other and it's still fun for them, and they defiantly work harder when they can see each other,it's nice for them to have some social interaction in lock down, and they always end the classes very happy, not everyone is comfortable with zoom so the classes are also posted in a members group,which they find enjoyable and can take it at there own pace, they can have conversations and interact with each other everyday in this group they send photos and just chat about anything, it has defiantly stopped the feeling of isolation and some great friendships have been formed in the group and zoom.
Here's some personal testimonials:
I've really enjoyed the classes Bev has posted on messenger. Each class has been different so you dont ever get bored. They range in ability too from mini raw to her raw class. Bev has been so supportive and has sent classes earlier when we've asked for them to fit in with our daily routines. It has been great that Bev also decided to do the classes on zoom, I think this gave everyone a boost as it was great to see our gym friends and probably gave everyone extra motivation. Thanks Bev x
I'm really enjoying the kettles class that Bev has put on zoom. It's been good to see our gym gang which has definitely helped.with motivation and general wellbeing during this difficult period. Seeing other people rather than doing the exercises on your own has been fantastic, we've given each other a boost when someone has needed it and had a giggle whilst we're doing it. After what can have been a challenging day working and homeschooling it's a fantastic way to unwind. Thanks Bev xx
I have been a member of Camm St. Gym for several years now and absolutley love Bev she is supportive, kind and wants you do your best. I previously attended all her classes and have P. Ts with her. Bev is very positive and gives lots of praise & encouragement. During lockdown I've missed the gym so much. The group Bev created for us all to stay in touch was a great idea. Bev has kept me motivated and focused with the workouts she has been sending and the Live Classes are really fun. If i wasnt able to do the classes i would have really struggled so its definitely helped with my well-being. My daughter has also started to join in with her classes too. I can't wait for Bevs classes to start again the gym
