I'm sure you are all aware that Governor Charlie Baker Decided that schools in MA are now closed until May, 2020. Due to this we now will need to postpone the start of our season to this date. We want you all to be able to stay in shape and still have the ability to at least erg in the meantime so we have posted an erg rental for $25 a month for our Rowers. If you would like to rent an Erg please visit the link below and contact me at email@example.com to arrange pick up of your rowing machine.

I also wanted to say that this delay in our season has hit everyone. We are saddened by not being able to be together as a team during this time. We also have hope for the day we do get to get back on the water because we all know May water is warm, the sun is up longer meaning you'll be getting a nice tan while rowing on nicer water!
If any one is looking to do yoga during this time I found a great app that is free and guides you through short yoga routines that has really motivated me to stay fit as well. I'll link that here for you in both the Apple App and Google Play stores!
Lastly, I know you have been told this a million times but remember that this is all temporary. We will be together again soon. we are doing everything we can to reduce the spread of COVID-19 now so that we are able to get together sooner. staying at home for a few months will for sure be tough but you are rowers! You are strong, you have the endurance to push through.
I know that staying away from others for a few weeks is going to get us all very antsy. I wanted to write up some work outs and activities you could do for the next few weeks that will help boost your immune system, get you in shape and also keep you busy. Practice self care during stressful time.
Do a quick Yoga routine when you wake up: - stand up tall, stretch you hands up - lean back slightly (sun salutation) - forward fold and reach for your your toes - walk your hands out into downward dog - push up into cobra - lean back into child’s pose - push up to cat/cow
Try to do one of these a day: Go on a walk Go on a run Ride your bike Ride your skate board Roller blade Take your dog on a walk at the beach
Alternate which days you choose to do Arms, Core, and Legs.
Core: 30 sec forward plank 30 sec right side plank 30 sec left side plank 30 sec leg lifts (lay down, sit on hands, raid legs up and down) 20 crunches 30 sec Russian twists
Arms: 20 push ups 20 star jumps 20 jumping jacks 20 mountain climbers 30 sec Arm circles (repeat for forward and backwards)
Aim to do something creative each day: Paint Color Draw Knit/ crochet Hand write a letter for a friend Make something with clay Bake something Re-organize/ arrange your room Practice your instrument Sing Dance
I hope these give you a few ideas of how you can keep busy while you are stuck at home for the foreseeable future. I’ll post a few other ideas as they come to me over the next few weeks.
As always, wash your hands a lot! Try to avoid large crowds, and contact your doctors the second you feel ill.
Hopefully we will be able to get out in the water soon, it may be a few weeks delayed but that just means it will be warmer water for us.
Reach out to me if you need anything! I may be able to help.
May you be happy and healthy in your homes, Coach Bella 508-680-4600 ...
We are so excited to get out on the water soon! Come train with us today at @masjahstudios at 3:45 we’re going to jump right in to the workouts on and off the ergs! Hope we see everyone there! Ps... Olive the new Team Puppy will be there for you to meet! ...
