Corby AC members have been staying in touch during online sessions

While the track at Rockingham Triangle may be closed, Corby AC have come together via live online classes arranged for the club by Ironstone Wellbeing Centre in Kettering.

For many athletes, the team training environment is critical for their wellbeing so looking for alternative options allowing the athletes to stay in contact with one another whilst still taking charge of their training was essential for the club and its coaches.

Ironstone Wellbeing Centre’s online classes offered the ideal solution, allowing people to stay active, improve their wellbeing and maintain the social interaction that otherwise would be lost given the current circumstances.

With the restrictions still in place and social distancing measures likely to remain for some time, the ability to maintain the social aspect of sport through online classes is going to be a vital part of the ‘new normal’ for the foreseeable future.

Maintaining their sense of community through the livestreamed classes was vital for Corby AC and is something they want to actively encourage for all.
