Athlete community friends,
These are truly unprecedented times we’re living in. It’s important to acknowledge that compared to the dire circumstances many humans are facing these days, that the absence of sports is an incredibly tiny component of what has been a worldwide crisis. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those both affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and those working to serve society in the battle against it. We truly are all in this together.
As a brick and mortar business Applied Fitness Solutions has been closed since the executive order was released on March 16th. A few days later our entire team from all 3 locations was laid off (leadership included). We know many people reading this have probably had similar experiences with their employers and businesses and we’re thinking of you and pulling for you. Many people are struggling. Luckily, AFS has an incredibly strong culture and on the same day we all “laid ourselves off” we also pledged to continue serving the community during these uncertain times. Within 24 hours of the mandated shutdown our team had constructed a fully functioning “virtual hub” which you can find HERE. Through the hub we’ve been providing live streaming virtual workouts, expert discussions, even yoga and breathing exercises all free of charge to the community which has now grown to over 3,000 people. We invite you to check out this resource by clicking here or searching: “AFS community virtual hub” on facebook.
Helping Keep Athletes On Track
In addition to the resources mentioned above, we also want to make our athlete specific tools and training aids available for all. AFS serves hundreds of athletes across our 3 locations and we have access to some incredibly effective tools that thanks to our volumes we can offer to the public free of charge during this time.
VOLT Training App
Specifically we’ve got a partnership with Volt Athletics which is a training app developed by Gatorade and the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Using this app, we can set up your athlete on a sport specific training routine that is tailored to the equipment you have and tracked intricately right on the athlete’s smartphone. So whether your family has a full gym, or nothing at all your athlete can train for their sport during the quarantine without losing a step. *This app costs money to the public, we will get you full access for free.
