One of the unforeseen side effects of prolonged lockdowns is that it’s left SE Fitness with a shortage of leaders (not a massive crisis in the scheme of things but one that will get worse as folks try to get away this summer). Leaders tend to be recruited from within the groups so no groups = no new recruits! This combined with other factors like injury, change of life and lack of creche has left us short.
Could you help out? If you’re willing to help, be that on a weekly basis or maybe just occasionally to cover emergencies or holidays then the best thing to do is have a chat to your leader or give me a call Helyn on 07788 628755. We won’t try to pressure you but we will provide extra information and you might find the prospect is not as daunting as you fear.
Leaders get several benefits, including hi viz leader tops, but the main one is that being the leader helps keep you to your regular routine. Leaders don’t get to bail out for wind, rain or snow and most of us see that as a good thing! Also leaders find that supporting others gives their own session a different dimension which can be very motivating. Please think about helping if you can.
Occasionally, we have been unable to find leaders and I am really sorry for this. Where this happens I hope you will use the contacts in the Bubbles to make your own arrangements and still get out to enjoy your exercise and fresh air. There is absolutely no need to pay when this situation arises! I just hope you will be able to stick to your routine and get a good walk or run. Hopefully, as the groups remain open we will be able to recruit and train more Leaders to fill the gaps. Thank you for bearing with us during this process.
