To my FWH Tribe!
I hope you are all healthy and strong and loving on your families! Anne and I returned from Ireland on Tuesday and have both been tested Corona-free and show no symptoms…YAY!
I am so thankful for the pre-scheduled vacation closure at FWH. It’s allowed me to get home, get acclimated and develop a FWH plan in time for next week. So…here’s what I’m thinking as of today, this hour, this minute. (hint: who knows? this could totally change!) :0
Fuel your body well – especially in times of crisis. Are you heading to the fridge out of boredom or in search of comfort? Are you eating unhealthily or more than you should? Ugh, right!?
Don’t forget that your body and brain have a hard-wired, auto-response to crisis that may not fall in line with what you know to be good for you. There is a vast selection of fresh fruits and vegetables in the grocery stores right now. My friends, we are so fortunate. NOW is a time to reset your nutritional health. You have the time to focus and make this happen – no excuses. Reach out and find an accountability partner who is also stuck in the house in need of connection and a healthy reset. They don’t have to be part of FWH, YOU can be their connection! You have the resources and power to come out of this crisis stronger than when you went in and why not bring somebody along?
I’d like to challenge you to join me in a 4-Day Kickstart this Monday, March 23.
Health and nutrition is something you can control right now by boosting your immune system with nutrient dense, healthy foods! If you’re feeling helpless, this is something you can do. Grab a friend or spouse, it’s free, simple and easy to do from home. By ditching processed foods and sugars, you significantly improve your immunity, increase your energy and jump start weight-loss. Bottom line…you will feel better which will help you live better and help you manage crisis better. Sign up below. Let’s GO!
Obviously, I am convicted about how important it is to move in connection with others. That’s why Franklin Wheelhouse exists. It’s been my sanity – no wait, YOU have been my sanity in that space for years now. I am so thankful! There are so many benefits to our movement. I won’t list them all here but remember that movement impacts physical, mental and emotional health in a BIG way. It’s the single-most under-prescribed drug. I write that from both professional and personal experience. I also acknowledge, however that we are in a health crisis that’s being spread by human contact and shared space. We all must practice social responsibility. Your health safety is my top priority.
Beginning Monday, March 23, you will have the opportunity to participate in online training sessions.
Beginning March 23, online streaming of classes will be made available. You can rent disinfected TRX straps with a $100 deposit refundable upon return. Please purchase by using the link below or send Venmo and indicate studio pick up (Sunday, March 22: 9am-12pm) or home delivery option.
and just so you know...
FWH Cleanliness Transparency
- The studio has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Every door handle, each piece of equipment including TRX straps, surfaces, etc. We will continue to thoroughly clean before and after class and even in-between to ensure all equipment and surfaces are kept as clean as possible.
- We have purchased new, top-of-the-line mats. All our mats are constructed with environmentally friendly TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer) closed cell foam. They are 100% latex, PVC, phthalates and chloride free. *TPE is key as it denotes no water or body fluid absorption.
- We use Mat-Kleen in spray bottles to clean equipment and surfaces. Mat-Kleen is a phosphate-free disinfectant cleaner designed to clean, deodorize and disinfect all TPE and non-porous surfaces. Matt-Kleen is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria, is virucidal (including HIV-1, HBV and HCV) and inhibits the growth of mold and mildew.
- We use Zep on our Floors and hard surfaces which reportedly kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria including HIV, MRSA and influenza. This product is suggested for use against the coronavirus.
We are prepared and anxious to transition to limited or full capacity studio classes as soon as local official ban is lifted. Until then, move and fuel your body well, wash your hands all the time and stay healthy! We will emerge from this crisis even stronger in body, mind and spirit. During this health crisis spread by human contact and shared space, we all must practice cooperation and social responsibility. Your health and safety is our top priority.
