We were all hoping for better news last week but I think we knew the restrictions wouldn't ease in the Hunter. The flow on effects of this was the cancellation of many winter competitions for the remainder of the 2021 season. Despite those cancellations Team UBF wants to congratulate to you all for a well planned and executed preseason and in-season program and for achieving great results even if they were cut short. We can't wait to see what you can achieve in 2022!
There is some good news to come out of recent health updates:
From today // Outdoor Recreation and Exercise is back for anyone fully vaccinated!
If you have been able to get double vaccinated you are now able to meet outside for outdoor recreation including exercise in groups of 5. Please send us an email if you are interested in group outdoor training with one of our fully vaccinated trainers.
From Monday after NSW reaches 70% double dose // Gyms can reopen for anyone double vaccinated!
We are so excited and energised to have some clarity about when we can open up the gym to double vaccinated members! We are estimating this to be around Monday 25th October.
All of our trainers will be double vaccinated by the time we open back up and we look forward to seeing all our double vaccinated members back in the gym too! We know its been frustrating getting your hands on the vaccine up here so even when we open back up we will still be offering a limited number of 1:1 outdoor sessions for those waiting for their vaccination appointments.
Now that there is end in sight to this lockdown, its time to hit our stride with lockdown sessions, whether that be zoom group classes, online programs or 1:1 outdoor sessions. If you haven't been taking part in any sessions during lockdown so far that's ok, we hope you have still been keeping active.
If you have been taking a bit of a break from training, you might want to chat to us about your options for the next 5 or 6 weeks so we can be sure to have you coming out the other side of lockdown ready to maximise your training when we are allowed to open back up!

// UBF Friday Night Cocktails
A small but committed group of Friday Group Class members have been smashing out a 30min conditioning session at 5.30pm followed by 6pm cocktails! I think this one is here to stay for the remainder of lockdown so why not jump online next Friday 18th September for the class at 5.30pm or even just cocktails at 6.00pm (no judgement here!).
UBF's resident DJ Johnny G will be providing some tunes from 6.30pm to help kick off your Friday night right so you can sit back, enjoy some cocktail and dinner vibes.
All you need to do is join the Zoom @ 5.30pm for Group Class or @ 6pm for Cocktails followed by DJ Johnny G on trumpet and decks! Zoom Passcode is UBF123. All members welcome to join!
We hope you have all found your own unique way to navigate the lockdown.
