Back to the Gym

By: John Kecman

 

Hesitant about coming back to the gym? I know many people are not ready to come back inside the gym, or any indoor space for that matter, where they may face an interaction with people outside of those they have been quarantined with. For many the risk of exposure in an indoor setting with others, even in a place designed to help improve one’s health and wellness like the Aspen Hill Club, do not justify the rewards. Since Covid-19 is something we will all be dealing with for the foreseeable future, there are a few different services we are offering to help ease concerns.

For those who do not feel comfortable leaving home, virtual training is a viable option to help you get the most out of your
at-home workouts, whether you have equipment or not. Accountability, and direction in your home workout programming is something our trainers have had to do since March so having them assist you on what you should be doing, and how to progress makes more sense than fumbling around in the dark on your own.

For those who are comfortable with working outside, but are not ready to venture indoors, we offer outdoor training where social distancing is more than capable. Both our outdoor small group (max. 5 people), and personal training offer exercise variety that we cannot offer inside. Nothing more functional than moving heavy, awkward, yet everyday items from point A to point B. If you have ever chopped wood, you probably know it is not easy. Come try swinging a sledgehammer a few times and tell me it is not a wholebody workout.

If you feel comfortable coming inside the fitness center but are not comfortable being around people, we can accommodate those conditions as well. Meet with one of our trainers during the gym closure from 12:00pm to 4:00pm Monday through Thursday, or 12:00pm to 2:00pm on Friday. So, you and your trainer, based on availability, can enjoy the fitness center as your own personal training studio.
