New Friskis Fall Semester 2020 – A Message from the Board
Published on September 1, 2020
Dear members of the Friskis family,
How strange these last few months have been.
We most of all hope you and your loved ones are doing well in these very difficult circumstances.
Your favorite Brussels sports club has gone through strange times too. No sessions allowed, then a partial program with restrictions, training of new instructors that were postponed. It has all had a huge impact, both financially and emotionally. Because we know how essential Friskis is for your daily happiness.
But Friskis would not be Friskis if our wonderful teams would just sit back and wait. So we did what we could, thanks to the relentless effort of a lot of people. Our instructors who videotaped their sessions from their homes, gave Facebook live sessions, were there when our venues reopened. Our communications team set up a splendid reservation system in no time, our infrastructure team renegotiated venue contracts, our hosts welcomed us with a smile and cared for us when we were allowed back in our halls… A big thanks to everybody.
It was heartwarming to see so many of you during our indoor summer sessions, that we could organize with the support of GC De Maalbeek, and in our running and Nordic walking sessions outdoors. A lot of participants, a lot of sweat, and a lot of fun. In short: very Friskis. This looks very promising for the new semester.
Our new autumn Schedule starts today. With some extra COVID-measures but overall, our new program looks great. With your favorite instructors, and a few familiar faces back on the jympa floor after a break. With some new outdoor sessions, new rhythms and moves indoors and the familiar enthusiasm and sweat.
And there is more to come. A project group has been secretly working on a totally new website including a brand-new membership tool. You will have your personal Friskis app very soon. Stay tuned.
Enjoy your workouts. They will keep you healthy and happy.
We wish you a great new semester.
