In an effort to take advantage of this “away from the gym” time, we are providing an accessory program focused on different movement issues and limitations. There are four tracks (choose one or two) designed to be done three (non-consecutive) days per week for about 10-15 minutes alongside normal Cove programming.
The third Weakness Work track is Core Engagement! The programming is here and the accompanying video is below.
Next track: Single Arm Stability
QUARANTINE CARE with WRENN
If we were sitting together in my therapy office right now, I might tell you that if you are anything like me, these past weeks have brought a whole lot more scrolling and a whole lot more screens than I am used to. I am taking in more messages about what I am “supposed” to be doing during this time of quarantine and social distancing than ever before. Suddenly, everyone else seems to be the expert on my life.
I have heard that if I don’t come out of this with a new skill, new hobby, and new side hustle, then I have failed. I have heard that if I don’t come out of this having lost those pesky 10 pounds, then I have not taken advantage of this once in a lifetime event. If I don’t take the time to clean out every closet, log every old receipt, scrub my baseboards with a freakin’ toothbrush then, yep, you guessed it, I did not use this time correctly.
I am here to offer you a different message.
You are doing an incredible job surviving in the midst of a global pandemic.
Yes! You really are. Whether that means you are showing up to every zoom workout, or if you haven’t made a single one. If you are using your equipment or staring at it from your couch. If you have scrubbed your baseboards or if your trash is piling up. If you are using food as fuel or as comfort. You are doing a great job.
Surviving looks a little different for everyone right now. And that’s okay. I invite you to do whatever feels best to get through this. Your nervous system is on high alert, your amygdala is in overdrive. This is the time for gentleness towards all of your parts, urges, and feelings.
Also, while I am on the subject. Your hard is your hard. And while we all might be experiencing this differently, each of our experiences matter.
I cannot wait to see you all again.
Take good care of yourself,
