Has your fitness routine been disrupted during this time of social isolation? Do you need help and encouragement to pick up the routine again albeit in a different way?
Do you need a virtual exercise buddy or check-in buddy to help you stay accountable to a fitness goal?
We will hold weekly meetings to discuss fitness ideas and provide encouragement. Ideas that we brainstorm will be listed below for those who can not attend the Zoom meetings.
