COVID-19 & VIRTUAL TRAINING

Hey folks, 

This email is written with as much honesty and transparency as I know how to deliver. Please bear with me as I share our position as a studio at both Kinetics and Kinetics Flow during this Coronavirus pandemic. 

Let me first mention this because a few people have mention it to me. This is not another “stay strong” email written to keep people from cancelling their programs. It is true, we are a small business and it is your commitment to us that allows us to keep our doors open. But I think you could agree with me that this is WAY bigger than that! We genuinely care about everything that is happening right now. We care about our people! We care about you!

This email is about how to NOT MELT WHEN FACED WITH CHALLENGE. It’s about how to KEEP GOING with the commitment to become stronger daily.

As it relates to Kinetics or Kinetics Flow programs, for those of you who can stand with us while we all get through this, we greatly appreciate it. For those whose situations are rocky, we understand and are willing to help you adjust your program in a way that makes sense.

As of yesterday (Saturday March 21st), Governor Murphy ordered that we all stay in our respective homes accept to go out for essential items like food, medicines etc.

If you’re like most of us, this order sounds scary and stressful. We are used to normal and nothing is functioning normally. Many people in our communities are hysterical, panicky, angry and going crazy in our homes.

This is all very understandable, but WE MUST REMAIN CALM, because the alternative of freaking out won’t be beneficial to anyone.

​Everyone in our community has a role; a part to play. Our part as a facility is as follows:  

  • to help maintain order where there feels like there is none 
  • to help keep you physically and mentally strong
  • to add a bit of fun and camaraderie to what could be very frustrating days
  • to be an outlet of support
  • to make waiting out this pandemic a little easier
  • to provide your families with activities that will create productive bonding
  • to rely on some level of normal so that you can continue to be productive

​I could go on and on, but I think you get my point. From every administrator to instructor and trainer, we are here to help! Providing the community with an outlet for better health and wellness is our life’s work. 

​And, now more than ever before we are committed to helping you and ourselves get through this. 

So, my overarching message is…

WE DO NOT MELT WHEN FACED WITH CHALLENGE. WE STAND UP AND POWER FORWARD TOGETHER!

Because of the new order delivered by Governor Murphy both Kinetics and Kinetics Flow here is our temporary new normal.

We will deliver all training virtually. 

DO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT… It is literally here for you!

So here is the low down:

Group Classes:

  • group classes are taking place virtually every day, multiple times a day
  • you can check the Mind body website or the KINETICS​ AND KINETICS FLOW​  websites to confirm schedules
