Updates with Covid-19 and my personal training studio
This past Saturday, Governor Murphy mandated many more places to be closed. I believe it’s still a grey area and the patrons of my personal training studio are at minimal risk (it’s the same few people, not very many of them and we wash and disinfect before and after etc.). Physical therapy places are allowed to stay open and that’s pretty close to what I do. While they do rehab, I do prehab.
However, after speaking with my attorney he advised me to go virtual for the time being. So until I hear that it’s ok to be open my personal training studio on Main Street will be closed. Many businesses have been saying that it wasn’t an easy decision.
This actually was an easy decision for me to make simply because it wasn’t my decision in the first place. And though I’m bummed that I can’t train my clients in person, I get it.
Every failure plants seeds for success. With this, it has forced my hand into structuring a way of training people remotely and hopefully not compromising the effectiveness of my training programs.
This can actually be better for me and the war against weakness long term.
If you aren’t familiar with me, in addition to being a personal trainer, I’m also a modern-day performing strongman (I perform feats of strength like bending steel and breaking chains as part of a live show). Many times following my shows, I’ve had people ask to train with me, some even saying they would drive 4 and a half hours to make it to my studio to train with me in person.
And although I think I’m pretty good at training people obviously this wouldn’t be a good strategy for anything past 1 session. But now with training remotely this opens up new opportunities to be able to work with people that normally wouldn’t have that opportunity.
If you are interested in this, drop me a line at StrongmanEricMoss@gmail.com.
There will be some google forms for you to fill out that will ask about your health history, your goals, what equipment you have access to etc. From there I’ll do a video assessment, and write out a detailed customized program for you to do on your own.
And until we can work together in person, stay healthy, stay strong and stay safe.
