Member Update From Our CEO

Dear valued member.

As you probably know we were instructed to temporarily close our doors on Monday the 23rd of March. We absolutely respect and support the authorities in making these difficult decisions and applaud the speed with which they are moving in what is such a difficult and complex issue to address.

We, like most people were informed of the need to close our business on Sunday night the 22nd of March whilst watching the news. I am so proud of our team, whilst they knew that this closure would directly and drastically impact them personally, when we met together early Monday morning there was unanimous agreement that we would immediately cease any charges to our members and then they immediately turned their focus instead to ‘what can they do to help our members’. This really is the heart of what ifeelgood is all about. So proud!

In this incredibly tough time and despite personal hardship, we as a team and as a community are committed to do what we can to help each other. We’ve always believed that feeling good comes from more than just exercise, it comes from how we think, the choices we make, and our choice to genuinely care. To the team and I, you are our priority and so our commitment is: that despite our own challenges, we will do all that we can to continue to help, to serve and care.

I encourage you to do the same. I have no doubt that there are massive challenges that each of us is facing. Personally, I stand to lose a lot, but I’m aware that how we feel is very much impacted by the choices we make. Can I ask you that despite the pain, choose to find the good and celebrate that. Reach out to someone around you and lift them up, and as we are all faced with having to establish new ways of doing life, choose to establish healthy habits. We believe that life is about good relationships (that’s why we keep bangin’ on about it), so in this time where we need to socially distance ourselves let’s not let anyone around us become isolated. Look out for someone else today.

We are all part of a family and I encourage you that if you’re finding it tough please don’t do it alone, reach out to your ifeelgood family by connecting on our social pages, messaging or calling and let’s not just ‘get through’ this, but let’s make this year amazing. Let’s make this #feelgood2020.

Praying that you and your family remain safe, build healthy habits and find good even in this tough time. We’re in this together and we aren’t made to do life alone! Although we don’t have a lot ourselves and we’re faced with some pretty stiff challenges at the moment, please reach out and we will do everything in our power to help.

I look forward to us all getting through this together. I truly believe that we will come out of this better, more caring and more present if we make the commitment to be there for each other now. No-one should fall! I can’t wait to see your smiling face in the club on the other side!

Cheers
