This one's for you, Peter

What a week!

Good day, Dennis.

This is, without exception, the craziest time I've ever experienced in my 25 years of working and studying in fitness (not to mention the obvious change to the rest of life). I look forward to getting on top of this and return to business as normal as quickly as possible.

For daily updates as they relate to the fitness industry, please bookmark this COVID updates page on the FITREC site.

FREE ACCESS TO YOUR OWN ONLINE PLATFORM

I just came across this today and thought it looked interesting. From the Fitter website, 'Fitter is a multi-purpose workout and program builder enabling trainers to build, brand and deliver workouts, programs and nutritional content to anyone, anywhere. All through their own app.' The service is currently being offered for FREE during the gym shutdown. View the product walk through here.

HEALTHY AGEING SUMMIT GOES DIGITAL

Founder of the Healthy Ageing Summit Ken Baldwin has announced that the Healthy Ageing Summit due to be held in Brisbane on the 27th -29th March will continue to run for all participants in a Digital format.

Ken says that "we wanted to provide an option where people could still have the opportunity to connect and learn from some of the best in our industry. Our Presenting team have done an amazing job, rising to the challenge to record their sessions, podcast and even do some Interactive live Webinars. All will be up and running and commencing, as scheduled, this weekend."

For more information or to pick up last minute tickets, head here. NOTE: All tickets purchased for this years online summit will be good for the 2021 event.

$20 FOR 30 MINUTES OF EXERCISE

Mel Tempest is offering $20 to any Trainer that provides her with 30 minutes of continuous exercise that she can gift to her community on Facebook. You can provide a session on anything from home workouts to dance instruction. The only proviso is that there is 30 minutes of continuous exercise instruction in there. Connect with Mel via her Facebook page.

STAYING SANE IN A LOCK-DOWN

Have you heard of a Netflix Party? "Netflix Party is a new way to watch Netflix with your friends online. Netflix Party synchronizes video playback and adds group chat to your favorite Netflix shows." Get on it.

Connect with friends and family via Houseparty. TBH, I've not used it but it looks interesting. It's apparently a "Face to Face Social Network."

Audible are providing FREE kids books until the schools open again. From the website, "For as long as schools are closed, we're open. Starting today, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories... that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids." Learn more here.

We've also been exploring Scholastic for our youngest as a means to both occupy and educate.

BOOK QUOTES I'VE HIGHLIGHTED:

"WHY SMALL HABITS MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE It is so easy to overestimate the importance of one defining moment and underestimate the value of making small improvements on a daily basis. Too often, we convince ourselves that massive success requires massive action." - James Clear, Atomic Habits

"Every atom you possess has almost certainly passed through several stars and been part of millions of organisms on its way to becoming you." - Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything [blows my mind! D]

"Only self-absorbed assholes think they are too good for whatever their current station requires." - Ryan Holiday, The Obstacle Is the Way

Stay safe, folks. Oh, and we haven't all seen eye to eye on how to get this infection over and done with.

Regards,
