Lockdown 2 came just as we were preparing for our Christmas competition – although we couldn’t run it in the usual way we were still looking forward to running a socially distanced version and the gymnasts were really looking forward to it.
It wasn’t meant to be and we were lockdown again, a little different this time the gymnasts were still at school until the first lockdown. We set off on zoom conditioning and Facebook lives once again, bringing back our weekly family quiz night on a Saturday but with the added challenge of 100,000 minutes. We also enjoyed a bake along together getting into the Christmas spirit and baking gingerbread people.
We knew the lockdown was only going to last 4 weeks and then we could head back to the gym so we wanted to keep our gymnasts and their parents active during that time. Not including the zoom conditioning we challenged the gymnasts to complete 100,000 minutes of exercise through the weeks and successfully they did it.
