Our April Wellness Champion is Holly Bachmeier-Funk

April 1, 2020

Congratulations to our April Wellness Champion – Holly Bachmeier-Funk! 

Holly is a student in our RRC Medical Laboratory Sciences program. Lab Sciences is a comprehensive hands-on program that requires dedication, commitment and attention to detail.  

Prior to the COVID19 outbreakHolly frequented the RRC gym every morning from Monday to Friday for weight lifting and cardio workouts. Commuting from out of Winnipeg, Holly would wake up at 5am in order to drive to school, get her work out in, shower and be on time for class at 8am.  

“Being active positively impacts every other aspect of your life. It improves my mood, increases my energy level, and is a great way to clear my head. I have a really busy schedule with my program and my time at the gym is the one hour a day I get to think about nothing and just have time to myself.” 

Due to the recent events with COVID-19, all gyms and recreation centres have been shut down indefinitely – providing a new challenge for Loft members and students like Holly.  

“I am still doing my regular work outs at home. My usual routine included heavy lifting, but I only have dumbbells at home so I have switched my work out to be more endurance focused compared to strength focused. So, I just do more reps with less weight. I also go for runs and walks to keep me active throughout the day and to break up the time I spend studying.” 

Her studies have also been affected and have moved online. That includes all lectures, labs, tests and finals! 

It is definitely different, and requires a lot of self-motivation, but it has been pretty good so far,” says Holly. “The instructors have been very accommodating. Our class also has a group chat that we use to stay connected with each other. 

Holly thinks that one of the biggest challenges during this quarantine period is to stay mentally healthy – especially when we are isolated and not able to interact personally with people. However, the quarantine has also brought us closer! 

It has been encouraging to see how people are helping others through this time, and how people are really trying to make an effort to look out for their families and communities.” Holly is also grateful that she does not have to take the long commute to school every day! 

Here are some wellness tips From Holly to leave you with: 

Make activity apart of your schedule. No matter what my day looks like I just know automatically that I will be including a workout into it. I like to get my workout done first thing in the morning when I have the most energy (physically, not mentally!) and then I get it done and don’t have to think about it. At the same time, it’s also about balance. Being active and eating healthy are a huge part of my life, but it’s also important to enjoy yourself and not take it too seriously. Find activities that you genuinely enjoy and it makes it a lot easier to stay active. 

Time for a Tune Up

March 29, 2020

As we move into April we start to think of spring, being outside and everything we are going to do.  Does our body agree with our intentions?  We never hesitate to spend on vehicle maintenance, from new brakes to oil changes to tunes ups we invest money in

our cars every day, month and year. Yet when we talk about investing in the most important vehicle we own, our body, we hesitate. Gym memberships are a luxury, and forget about personal training sessions. Our bodies carry us through life all day – every day. How we go through life in our body vehicle depends on how well we maintain it. Don’t hesitate – invest in your body. Read More →
