    010: Let's Get Active with Coach Hernsy

    Let’s Get Active y’all.

    Self-care is what we need right now – and physical wellness plays a big part. In episode 010, we talk with Coach Hernsy. If you’ve been to one of his fitness classes in Amsterdam or Dubai, you know he brings a unique energy to each and every workout.

    We ask him how he got into fitness, why it’s important to keep moving during lockdown and the transition from in-person to virtual coaching. Plus, hear a bit about the workout series he’s making for TQTB, Let’s Get Active.

    007 Life’s weird now

    Marie-Anne and Obi try to articulate some of the whirlpool of thoughts we (and likely, you) have had over the past few weeks due to COVID-19.

    What paradoxes have come about due to this pandemic?

    How do we protect and support our most vulnerable people?

    What on Earth, generally, is going on?

    We can’t answer ANY of these questions. But we’re chatting about it anyhow.
