My hope is that all of you and yours are safe, healthy, and of course, sane. Our live-streaming classes have been rocking with both familiar faces, and new faces from all across the country. I am so grateful for all of the instructors who have not only been teaching fabulous classes from home, but who have also become tech goddesses, learning Zoom and Facebook Live, so awesome!
For me, the structure of teaching everyday has been a sanity saver, and seeing many of you joining in, filling the classes with your smiles and positive energy, has helped to make this crazy month a lot brighter. I cannot thank you enough.
New Live-Streaming Classes
I hope the structure of the live streaming-classes has helped you find a new norm. To add to that norm, I am happy to announce two new classes coming to our live-streaming schedule:
This cardio class is part of our Rock Steady Boxing program, usually only open to people living with Parkinsons disease. Basic boxing moves and foot work are put together in brain challenging combos, combos are timed so the intensity is up to you. This is also a great low-impact cardio workout for Silver Sneakers Circuit-goers, or anyone looking to sharpen their mind-body connection or add some heart pounding cardio into their world.
Cris is joining us in her regular time slot, Thursdays 9 a.m., to bring some high energy cardio into our lives. If you’re not familiar with Piloxing, it is part Boxing and part Pilates. You take some basic punches, mix them up with some standing core work, add in a rocking play list and you’ve got a fun, calorie burning class that has been a favorite at Jen Murphy Fitness for many years.
In addition to these new classes, don’t forget to check out the full live-streaming schedule, that includes the recent addition of TRX with Deb, Hatha Flow Yoga with Patti, Gentle Hatha Yoga with Eileen, and Yin Yoga with Nancy.
For those of you that can’t get to a live-streaming class, I have been shooting videos that can be watched whenever YOU want to workout. You can view them on the Jen Murphy Fitness YouTube channel. You will find a little bit of something for everyone, and more to come, as we are adding new videos every week. Don’t forget to subscribe to the channel, so you’ll be notified when a new video launches. If you have an idea or request for a video, let me know; I’d love to hear from you!
Have you seen the MilfordToGo.com site yet? All of our local foodie spots that are available for take out or delivery are listed with their contact information. This is a great way for us to offer our favorite restaurants, grocery stores, and specialty food shops our support.
A big thank you to all the owners, grocery store, and restaurant employees working so hard to keep us fed. You are truly essential to everyone.
Finally, the big question: as the country is getting closer to loosening the quarantine and slowly getting back to “normal,” it is my mission to keep all of JMF’s members and instructors healthy and safe. We are a relatively small facility, so when we do reopen, changes in the schedule will be made to maintain social distancing and allow time for disinfecting and cleaning equipment.
The important message here is that the studio WILL reopen. Of course the silver lining in all of this mess is that I will continue streaming classes even after we reopen.
I wish you all a safe, happy, and healthy quarantine!
“See” you in class!
