It’s been nine weeks since schools and businesses closed and we went into lockdown against COVID-19. In that time, the world has changed, and we have learnt a very different way of living our lives. 

Now, in Ireland, we’re facing the very exciting (and also slightly daunting) prospect of easing out of lockdown and back to “normality” – or at least, a new version of normal! We’ve been given a set of guidelines following five three-week phases, during which things like travel distance restrictions, business closures and social distancing measures will be eased and we can start to enjoy some of the things we have been missing so much for the past two months. 

In line with the lifting of restrictions and the Government’s exiting lockdown plan, we are really happy to be able to now offer outdoor training in person! We have continued to work with our clients in an online capacity, running Zoom classes and one to one video sessions, but from next week, we will be able to meet in groups of four or less for the purposes of exercise. To comply with the COVID-19 guidelines, we will be offering outdoor training sessions for individuals or groups of two or three, with minimal equipment (sterilised between use), at a distance of 2m and with plastic gloves and hand sanitiser available for trainer and client. 

In addition to that, we have been working hard to come up with our own Intelligent Fitness Exiting Lockdown plan for all of our lovely clients, and we now even have our very own app (powered by the lovely people at Just Coach) through which we can deliver even better content. We understand that the past nine weeks have been very difficult for most people – between the closure of gyms, travel restrictions, worry about the situation and lack of social interaction, the majority of people will have lost some fitness, gained a little body fat and possibly suffered with sleep, stress and mental wellbeing issues as well. Our easing out of lockdown plan is designed to help you get back to where you were physically and mentally, and we have designed it in five three-week increments, in line with Ireland’s plan to ease restrictions, so that by the time life can return to normal, you’ll be feeling a lot more like your old self too!

Phase 1 of our plan begins on Monday 18th May and is designed to help with every area of your life that has been affected by the extraordinary circumstances we’ve been living through. If you decide to sign up for the three week Phase 1 plan, you will get:
