As I mentioned in my previous email, Matt and I are doing our absolute best to keep you healthy, safe and most importantly, happy during this unprecedented time in our modern lives. Did you know that you are actually more at risk to become ill when you are stressed out? Click here to see how stress affects your immune system and the ability to fight off an infection.
This email is packed full of information. Below I have listed the highlights but please take the next few minutes to review the information below.
Please note that changes to all of this are VERY POSSIBLE. I ask for your forgiveness as we make decisions based on information coming out.
All BFB Shift Program coaching sessions are cancelled for the next two weeks and will hope to resume the week of March 30th.

About the Outdoor Bootcamp class
You will need to bring your own mat or towel
Equipment may be used during the workout but will not be shared (we will provide equipment beyond the mat or towel)
Equipment will be cleaned before and after the workout
You can bring your own equipment such as resistance bands
Participation will be limited to 10 attendants to maintain social distancing
Outdoor Bootcamp is open to any current acac member or must be accompanied by a current acac member.
This is a great opportunity to reduce stress and anxiety during this time. Please invite anyone who needs a chance to get outside in a safe and healthy way. (Participants must live within a 25 mile radius of Charlottesville)
Outdoor Bootcamp classes may be cancelled if attendance is below 3 participants registered or due to inclement weather.
Freezing your acac Membership
If you would like to freeze your acac membership, I believe the club is still allowing this. You can attend the Outdoor Bootcamp if your acac membership is frozen and you can still be a part of the BFB Programs if your acac membership is frozen. (These are practices only in place during our current situation)

BFB Programs are not Paused or Delayed
Offering these outdoor bootcamp classes are my only solution to our current situation. At this time, refunds will only be given out on a case by case basis. The BFB Programs are not paused and the next two weeks are still considered a part of the Spring Program launch. If you are sick or become ill, you must let me know immediately.
We are offering these Outdoor Bootcamp to still offer a great workout but, more importantly, a big stress relief to you.
I will be 100% honest: I may not be able to offer these discounted small group training programs after March if I need to make mass refunds. This is my attempt to maintain service and to keep training prices low for the rest of the year.
The only exception are those on the BFB Shift Program who complete their coaching sessions in person. We will create custom solutions for you. And exceptions will be made to those currently experiencing illness or virus symptoms or those who are immune compromised.
If I or Matt become sick...
If I or Matt even feel not so great that day, we will cancel the Outdoor Bootcamp workout. Our main priority is keeping everyone healthy and we will put your wellness first. Please rest assured that if anyone in our immediate family is experiencing symptoms, we will quarantine ourselves
On a good note...
Let's take a moment to remember why we are going through this alteration to our normal lives: to save our elderly, those who cannot fight off this infection and our society as a whole. It is through our selfless nature and care for our community that we all are stopping the spread. If infected, most of us would have a terrible week but we have the immune system and lung capacity to survive. We, as a planet, are making these sacrifices to our income, learning and social schedules to save the lives of those not physically strong enough to live through an infection or to keep others from getting horribly sick. In this time of deep sorrow and panic, let's remember how touching it is that we can save those who do not have the ability to save themselves or think about how our actions could negatively impact another person. There are still good people and reactions in this world!
As I mentioned in my previous email, this is a difficult time for us all and I appreciate your understanding in any lack of communication from my end.
