It’s no secret that sharing fitness with others provides a whole host of benefits. Even if you’re not physically working out together, to have someone who takes an interest in your progress and your consistency is proven to directly impact how successful you feel.
As an industry, fitness has changed so drastically in the last couple of months. This high touch, close proximity, let’s sweat and high five world has been spooked. But this is when you realize that all the things that make this situation unfortunate are the same things that make sharing your fitness so powerful.
We are personal trainers, which means we like to demonstrate and motivate by looking you in the eye, moving alongside you and through touch. We want you to FEEL our energy and we want to feel yours. It’s all the good vibes that helps new clients take down their barriers and let go of what they knew about ‘gyms’. It’s the body language, the smiles, the support, and certainly the sweat that lets people know they’ve come to the right place.
In this new world of virtual fitness, is it possible to continue to foster a ‘space’ that is all that? Well, we have learned that while it may not be ideal, it is in deed full of potential. The purist in me longs for simplicity and good old fashioned relationship building. However, the coach in me understands that there is still much work to do, many lives to change, and an incredible community to help thrive.
One thing that will never change is that this is a people business, and we are people-people. We still don’t have all the answers, and the timeline continues to be a little hazy, but we do promise to keep Boutique Fitness accessible as we eventually transition into a hybrid studio of in-person coaching, virtual coaching, and video on demand for specialties (think foam rolling, TRX, and RUN classes?).
Our physical presence will always be priority, but if you have joined our virtual classes, you know how much heart gets poured into those too. The Spring Special has been a wonderful experience in preparing quality pre-recorded workouts that have proven to be incredibly valuable to those participating. We believe whole heartedly in what we do and what we have to offer and that these platforms will not only allow us to continue to deliver, but will also expand our reach and increase your options. We want you to stay safe and healthy through your fitness journey. So while logistics may have gotten shook, the community stands strong. One way or another, we have your back❤️
