Over the last 12 years of being at Vision Bangor I thought I'd
experienced every change possible…
That was until COVID-19 hit and in no time the gym was shut and I was training in my COVID Cave… the garage.
COVID-19 has put many challenges before me with being a small business owner (Bangor Learning Centre). I had to fight like everyone to survive. Our students and programs were put fully online in 2 weeks which gave me little time for anything else. Working 14hr days was taking its toll with the stress and lack of sleep. I had to preserve myself physically and mentally to get through so I kept myself accountable and put aside the time I needed to train online. Regardless of how I felt, I knew I had to do it to remain strong!
I was sceptical about online PT training but after my first session I wanted more! All my sessions have been carefully planned and have pushed me to a place I didn't know existed. My trainer has been fantastic, not only with each session but also ensuring my mental health is in check. I've also done group online sessions which have been heart pumping! Who would have thought online PT training would be so interactive and enjoyable?
I can feel the benefits of staying committed and I now know I can take on any challenge that comes my way. I have set myself new goals and with the support of Gary and Vision Bangor, in time I will achieve them. I've had to adapt to a new way of training which is now the norm - challenge accepted!
COVID-19 has taught me a lot about myself and continuing with my training has helped me find an inner strength I didn't think possible.
Well done Vision Bangor - you have done an amazing job!
