A covid story - Robyn Johnstone
From the moment I walked through the door of CFPB I felt welcomed.It can be a little daunting walking into a new gym where super fit and strong people are expertly lifting weights I would consider suitable to use a forklift for, but that lasted about as long as it took me to get 10 metres inside. Aimee has put together a team of coaches that are most interested in each and every person doing their best, safely, while having fun. CFPB has also attracted the most wonderful members. I quickly found I couldn’t bring myself to miss the tortuous Sunday endurance sessions, because I missed the people, the atmosphere and the little bubble of joy that 2 hours on Sunday morning is. COVID changed how we train, but not the creative, diversity in the program, or the sense of being connected to this amazing accepting community. If anything the COVID months have highlighted to me the energy and passion Aimee has for CFPB in her creative solutions to keep us together in our varied and endless range of situations. My old dumbbell and borrowed kettlebell, have been put though every workout scenario I can imagine. It’s been so nice to see my ‘gym’ on my iPad as I’ve logged on in the local park everyday. I’ve even been known to log on to say hello more than workout. In this little family it doesn’t matter what you can’t do, can’t do yet or where you’re starting from. Everyone will be cheering you on as you reach your own goals. And I CAN’T WAIT to be all back together.
