Fitness instructors ready to keep people active during lockdown
Wellness and fitness workers are taking their bootcamps indoors and online to offer a lifeline of activity to locked-down customers.
Lauren Rountree of Cronulla Bootcamp in Sydney's south said she had to adapt to video conferencing when strict social distancing and self-isolation regulations came into force.
"I have to make sure that all the exercises can be done with absolutely no equipment and in a tiny space," she told 9News.
Using her lounge-room and a laptop, Ms Rountree can still give her charges a boot camp experience.
"I can still keep an eye on everyone, I can still motivate everyone, I can still check their form, and correct them if I need to," she said.
Lisa Bianco of Ascension Astrology and Yoga said they were getting "great attendance" at online classes.
"They're still working hard, for sure, and they're having to take more responsibility for themselves actually," she said.
But she admitted she still longed to reach out and correct wayward students.
"I miss being able to go, 'it's this way'," she said.
"But that's okay. Social distancing!"
