Staying Safe, Healthy & Stress-free!

Hello my friends!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, busy working with my in-home clients and getting ready to move into our first new home!

I know everyone is going crazy right now with the CoronaVirus (COVID-19), but there really isn’t a need for us to add more stress and anxiety into our lives.


COVID-19 is a viral infection that originated from animals, specifically seafood sold in the Wuhan city fish market. There are now more than 100,000 cases of the virus, with most of them occurring within China, South Korea, Italy, and Iran. The global death toll from the virus has surpassed 3,800, and could continue to grow.

The virus can be spread through human-to-human contact. Symptoms include cough, fever, and difficulty breathing. According to the World Health Organization, one out of six people who get infected with COVID-19 become seriously ill and experience the worst of the symptoms, primarily respiratory difficulties. Due to the disease being viral, antibiotics won’t be much help.

Your recovery depends on the strength of your immune system, as most of those who’ve died from COVID-19 were already in poor health before getting infected.


Here’s some good news. You are most likely not infected with coronavirus if you have not travelled through China, Iran, Italy, or South Korea recently, as these countries are dealing with the largest outbreaks.

If you’re experiencing common COVID-19 symptoms, you’re more likely to have a regular flu. Get in touch with your health care practitioner and follow their advice if you’re worried.


Your best bet to protect yourself is to avoid exposure to the virus. You should also focus on boosting your immune system, since the health of your immune system determines your recovery from the virus.


If you’re worried about going to a gym, find an in-home trainer in your area to come to you or try your own home workout program with a company like or create your own workouts.


As an in-home trainer I make sure that I ALWAYS sanitize workout mats, dumbbells and any other equipment my clients use before and after we use them. I also wash my hands as often as I can and carry hand sanitizer with me. It’s also critical that if you have a trainer coming to your home that you notify your trainer if you have any cold/flu symptoms. They may want to avoid coming to your home so they can prevent spreading any illness to their other clients. They may also be able to provide virtual training for you so you can still get in your workout.

Last, but not least, do your best to not stress yourself out over this virus. Adding more stress to your life will just breakdown your immune system. Stay positive, active and hydrated!

Have you been affected by COVID-19?

Stay healthy my friends!
