BANGOR – Starting this past Monday, one-on-one training and small outdoor group fitness classes were allowed to start under the governor’s revised re-opening plan.
Welcome news for Queen City Athletics owner, Shawn Demaray.
“Being able to be face-to-face and to see kids smile and see their body language,” Demaray said.
“Really lifted my spirits this week for sure,” he added.
Demaray is back training athletes one-on-one at Unlock Your Potential after over a month of Zoom and social media workouts.
“It actually helped me become a better trainer because it made me think outside the box. It had me do things I hadn’t done in a while or to ground myself and do some things that the kids can do to get themselves better that i hadn’t thought about doing in small space like they had,” Demaray said.
Demaray says he’s taking all the necessary precautions and is sanitizing equipment after each session.
For athletes, the spring and summer months are crucial for development.
“Really important to me to be working on my game to be the best i can for my team and brewer football,” Brewer football running back and linebacker, Cam Hughes, said.
“Just really all I’ve been thinking about lately working hard and getting ready for football,” Hughes said.
Getting back in the gym, one-on-one, gets kids back on track, even if it’s not always their favorite drill.
“I don’t know if I have one actually least favorite anything that it takes hard work I guess I don’t know,” Brewer basketball guard, Colby Smith, said jokingly.
Demaray is also offering small group workouts and online classes. More information can be found on his Facebook page.
