CrossFit Ladysmith offers online workouts during COVID-19 closure

They will also offer free daily workouts on their public Facebook page for the entire community

CrossFit Ladysmith will be offering online classes to gym members, as well as free daily workouts for the entire community through their Facebook page during the COVID-19 shutdowns.

The gym will close its doors to the public March 17. Members can pick up equipment between 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Those in self-isolation can have equipment delivered to their doorstep.

CrossFit Ladysmith co-owner Tylor Nelson said the decision to shift to online was taken to help keep the community healthy, both mentally and physically.

“We care about our members a lot,” Nelson said. “We have a really tight community, we’ve become really close, and CrossFit becomes part of our daily routine. We want to keep people doing that without putting their health at risk.”

“We don’t train just for aesthetics. It’s more for our overall health. That’s important, especially in times like these.”

Nelson said that CrossFit originated from at home workouts, so it is well positioned to be done from home. CrossFit is done with minimal equipment, so the transition is easier than traditional workouts.

Members will receive new workouts daily at 7:00 pm through their Zen Planner App. Videos of stretches and warmups will be posted daily as well.

In a Facebook post, CrossFit Ladysmith encouraged members to continue with their memberships. If too many memberships are put on hold, it could jeopardize the future of CrossFit Ladysmith.

“As small business owners we unfortunately don’t have a salary to rely on during this challenging time and the next month could put the gym at risk of closing,” the post said.
