The Pattey Vellney Special

Like we’ve been saying in classes: LET’S KEEP EACH OTHER SAFE AND HEALTHY!

  1. WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY! You’re an adult- don’t be gross and don’t skip something so important. In fact, practice good hygiene and do it before and after your workout. Also regularly shower, hydrate, wear clean clothes, and do things that put you in a good mood, etc.
  2. WIPE DOWN YOUR EQUIPMENT. Before and after. Maybe wipe something else as a bonus just in case- the shortage of antibac wipes in the area means that these shouldn’t be wasted on a single wipe. Be smart and economic so we can get through this together.
  3. WHEN IN DOUBT, STAY AT HOME! Don’t come into the gym if you’re sick. Your fitness, while important, only improves if you can allow the body through the stress/recovery cycle. Being sick is the stress so you don’t need more. Exercising would only risk getting better. Do what’s best for your health and our community. You can always work out at home.

If you were traveling abroad then maybe chill out for a couple of days to make sure you’re not carrying something that could be shared.

    From the MSNBC article:
    “death toll continues to rise”
    “devastating economic impact”
    “civil emergency”

    It’s no wonder mass hysteria is gripping our city with media outlets like MSNBC using fear-mongering buzzwords like these. Don’t get me wrong, we should treat this virus–like any virus–seriously and carefully. We should ALWAYS be hygienic and be careful what we touch in public places. That is how sickness spreads. But whatever you do, don’t give in to fear and panic.

    To put things in perspective: current death toll for coronavirus in Washington AND California is 11 people

    25 million people in the US will get the flu every year
    15,000 – 30,000 people died from the common flu in U.S. in 2019
    73 injuries and 18 fatalities from shootings in Seattle alone in 2019
    3,800 injuries and 235 fatalities from car crashes in Washington in 2019

    We’re not shutting down stadiums for any of the above epidemics.
    The only way you’d be truly safe from anything is by not ever leaving your house… and even then, statistically speaking, you’d be more likely to die from sedentary diseases.

    Go outside and LIVE YOUR LIFE. Be positive and hopeful. Fear is the mind-killer.
