Fitness studio owner Sinead O’Meara who shut her doors in Torquay this week to work online, is launching a new fitness class next week, which she’ll stream to her clients, along with her other regular classes, thanks to her Go Retrieve system.
She said: ‘I had no choice but to shut up shop because my daughter came home with a raised temperature and we have to protect our clients,’ she said. ‘I’ve had to think outside of the box here as this is my only source of income. Also I do my own therapy through it. I started my business because of poor mental health and so I know just how important exercise is for your mental and physical health. And in these very difficult times, we all need to concentrate on our self worth and happiness.’
GO Retrieve co-founder Lee Wilson said adding integrated virtual classes to the management system was the only way gyms and fitness studios would probably be able to survive the current crisis, now that they’ve had to close their doors.
‘The addition of virtual classes to GO Retrieve is our commitment to our customers,’ he said.
‘The virtual classes will work in a similar way to existing classes, where clients can continue to book and pay online. They’ll get the same reminders and push notifications, with the addition of a personalised invitation to join the class online.’
‘Why won’t happen of course is the journey to the gym. But they’ll still be able to chat and interact with their trainer during the class. The only difference is they’re not in the same room.’
