Self Isolation Fitness and Wellbeing Advice Group

Organica J and Josephine Christie Fitness

My daughter, Josephine Christie, a Personal Trainer in Brighton, and I have set up our Self Isolation Fitness and Wellbeing Advice Group on Facebook.

The aim of  our Group is to help people to cope better with what we are all facing at the moment in this health crisis. When we both discovered that our businesses would be hard hit along with our many clients who are either working incredibly hard at the front line, or in their businesses or are finding themselves at home in lockdown and self-isolation. We wanted to do something that would provide them and everyone who wants to join us with some things that can help.
