Fitness Focus and COVID-19

As April 2020 comes to an end, we are now approximately 6 weeks into Saskatchewan’s State of Emergency.  At this point, for us that live in Saskatchewan, there is light at the end of the tunnel.  The province has a 5 phase plan to reopen our economy and that’s great news to many people, families and companies.

Our place in this strategy to reopen Saskatchewan’s economy is in the third phase.  This is good news; however it is still a little unclear as to when an exact date will be for this phase to be implemented.

We are anxious to have our doors open again, but we’re thankful that this process isn’t being rushed.  It’s become very evident over the past 6 to 7 weeks what high important you all put on your daily fitness routines; if not for your immediate physical health but your mental health and wellbeing as well. But what's more important is keeping those around us safe and prioritizing people who are more susceptible to the virus.

Reopening the gym as early as possible in Phase 3 would be optimal for everyone; but we are working hard to make sure we move forward with caution. We have been taking steps and making the proper changes to ensure we can operate the club safely with adequate sanitation practices and remain functional while always considering required distancing between members.

We will be providing more details on new measures and practices as we near the date that we are able to reopen.


In the meantime, all recurring biweekly member payments will remain frozen for the duration of this state of emergency and will resume as we are able to reopen our doors.

If you have any concerns, we encourage you to reach out to our member services at info@fitnessfocus.ca

Your Relationship with Your Fitness Routine

Why it's so hard to stay with your workouts long term

-Fitness Focus Saskatoon-

We've all got a different reason to include exercise and fitness into our lives. Maybe it was doctor's orders that you need to make some drastic life changes. Maybe you miss feeling as good as you did back in high school. If you're already athletic, you may just want to take things to the next level. 

Whatever it is that led you down this road towards improving or maintaining your personal health and fitness, there's one thing that we all have in common, which is that when we started we all had some sort of goal or outcome in mind. Treat your relationship with your workout like you would any other relationship in your life. At some point you may ask yourself, "am I getting what I need?"; so it's important to remember that what you get out of it will likely depend on what you put in.

What's the reason we give up on our gym regimen? 

Anybody that's ever started a workout plan likely never thought to themselves about whether or not they were going to still be working out a year down the road, or even six months for that matter.

A lot of the time, we just find it doesn't mesh with the rest of our life; it's a scheduling issue.  With work, family, extracurricular, life events or even that curve ball that life will inevitable throw at you; obstacles will get in your way and the easiest thing to do is remove health and fitness from your daily routine. 

What can you do about this?  

Since time, or lack thereof, is generally always the issue that causes us not to go to the gym and ultimately cancel a membership all together; how we use our time is the most important factor we need to control. So, plan and prepare!
