#Covid19 has changed many of our weekend patterns and habits. Before the pandemic, my priorities for Saturday and Sunday mornings included going to the gym. My gym has reopened but I've opted to keep my membership frozen. Going shopping, particularly at Bloomingdale's was also part of my weekends. (But not every weekend!)
Retailers are also adjusting in areas such as how to engage with their customers in this new #Covid19 environment. It was a pleasant surprise to receive an invitation from Bloomingdale's to get moving on the first Saturday of 2021. Bloomingdale's in a partnership with Ladder Teams, (an iOS app) I participated in a live group session with enthusiastic Coach Eric and his charge. He got me moving and enjoyed it. Thank you @Bloomingdale's too.
I'm considering joining Ladder Teams. Reason for hesitation is unsure exactly how it works. The online messaging states it "connects you with elite coaches and and an entire community who will champion your success." And also states "We pair you with a coach to help you find happiness through health and wellness." Is this 1:1 training at a specific set time? (Doubt it as the price is too low for 1:1 personal training) Or, does this work by following a video and then texting a coach with questions and comments? (Maybe.) Also find the exact name of "Ladder"confusing. Is it Ladder Teams? On Instagram it is listed as @joinladder. Branding and messaging should not be a show stopper to get comfortable with this concept. Only when I'm confident with explaining how this works to others will I join.
Next steps: Reaching out to Ladder Teams to clarify how this app works. Stay tuned.
