Virtual Online Training
Written on the 23 March 2020
Dear Members of the GIANT family,
Firstly we want to say a heartfelt thank you for all of the support over the past few weeks. As this situation escalates we must do our part to minimise the spread of the impact of COVID 19, and as per the Prime Minister's announcement we must cease classes from midday today (Monday 23rd March 2020). It is not an ideal situation but there are still options available for your training!We will be keeping up regular communication with you all through Facebook, emails and text messages during this time. We appreciate your cooperation with this.
We are currently working on transferring all our classes into the virtual world and moving to online training!
Now more than ever we need to master ACTIVE REST!
It's important for everyone to have a planned daily outine consisting of work/school work, outdoor sunshine, mental stimulation, house chores and exercise. Our online training will help structure all of this so we minimise junk food, Netflix and video games all day.
Active Rest ensures that when you return to training, the skills and muscle memory are not lost. This requires a strength and conditioning program, specific drills and exercises plus the mental focus.
GIANT students need to be active, to move, to engage their mind and to interact with others! This is exactly what we'll be providing with our Virtual Classes. Currently you have free access to our Online Resource Library, and in addition to this, we are working on interactive classes where you as the students can train along with us at home. Watch this space!On top of that we'll go live regularly to keep up face to face communication and answer any questions you have about your training or techniques. Requests are welcome!
We would like to extend our appreciation to those who have expressed their desire to continue to support us and the school. This is the reason we have chosen to teach Martial Arts, it is to help people, and to receive that help back is truly amazing.
Getting Active Rest right will ensure you will be the most prepared than you have ever been when you get back to regular classes. We will get through this, and when we do, we will all be stronger for it. We will not forget your loyalty.
If you'd like to swing past the gym and grab some equipment to train at home, please shoot us an email and if we can provide it, you're more than welcome.
You are welcome to stop your direct debit fees should you not require our new arrangement of services to you. To members who have paid upfront, let us know if you will not be training online and we will credit your upfront training to when the restriction on classes is lifted.If you or your family are experiencing certain financial hardship that we can help with, please reach out. It will all be in the strictest of confidence. We are here to support the community and we do not want you to stop training. WE REPEAT, WE DO NOT WANT YOU TO STOP TRAINING!
Doing the right thing is easy when things are going well. The real test of community and strength comes in times of hardship. So please take care of yourselves and each other.
