I just did the Core Restore workout this morning for some 'me time' while I have my youngest 2 at home with Covid. This was a great way to ease back into exercise after having Covid myself. I can definitely tell I've been sick, when knee get ups make me breathe hard. So grateful to have these tailored workouts and Kirstyn's help as I continue to recover.
I'm loving the workouts and guided education tips within the exercising after Covid program. I just did the low strength workout from phase 2 and am feeling good. Kirstyn is making it easier to return to my usual fitness level despite the painful slowness caused by fatigue.
I've been doing beach walks following the walking program this week, which has been good. Definitely glad I didn't go too hard like I usually would have. Thanks for pulling me into line, I'm feeling great now and will be back at bootcamp Monday, but will keep listening to my body.
Once you've been symptom free for 7 days. OR if you have long ongoing symptoms and have been medically cleared to exercise under guidance.
YES, if you have had COVID-19, you have had mild-moderate symptoms, you used to exercise and are looking to safely return to your previous fitness and strength levels. If you are unsure if this program is for you, contact Kirstyn directly email@example.com and she will personally figure this out with your unique situation.
If you have serious underlying health issues (heart, lunges, hospitalised with COVID), you will need to be cleared and monitored more closely by a Clinical Exercise Physiologist or Physiotherapist for extra support, or your GP for medical guidance. If you weren't exercising prior to having COVID-19, as this program is a return to exercise. If you are unsure if this program is for you, contact Kirstyn directly firstname.lastname@example.org and she will personally figure this out with your unique situation.
Start exercising when you feel rested. Then rest afterwards. It is good to spread out exercise doing a little at either end of the day to reduce the likelihood of fatigue. Exercise when it works in with your day, aiming not to cause stress or fatigue as work, house chores can be taxing on the body also.
You don’t have to see a GP before returning to exercise after having COVID unless: you’ve been in hospital with COVID, if new symptoms come that you’re concerned about, if you think your heart may not be coping, if you have any concerns. Health and medical professionals well equipped with helping people exercise after illness are Clinical Exercise Physicians and Physiotherapists.
All of the workout videos are online. You will have access to the video links within the private Facebook group, and the E-book which is sent via email. Each link will take you to the video held in Vimeo where you can follow along.
If (at any time) your symptoms return or new symptoms start, you are to stop exercising and rest. It is nothing to worry/ be scared about, rather to be aware of your body adapting and needing more rest. You can re commence exercising again once you are symptom free and feeling rested, or you’ve been medically cleared by a Clinical Exercise Physiologist, Physiotherapist or GP to return to exercise. You can contact Kirstyn anytime while using the program via the Facebook group or email for advice.
Even if you were symptom free or had a mild case and feel fine now - It is when you return to exercise too soon, going too hard, lifting too heavy that symptoms return or begin. This can cause Long Covid, can develop ongoing health issues, can develop Post-exertional Malaise (PME) - the worsening of symptoms following even minor physical or mental exertion. PEM can be mitigated activity with management (pacing yourself).
