Fitness goes online during lockdown

Dani Paki May 2020 6

Personal trainer Danielle Paki of Booti Fix made sure the lockdown period wouldn’t hinder the fitness levels of her customers. The transition from Alert Level 3 to Alert Level 4 gave her 48 hours to distribute her gym equipment to her Booti clients so they could use it during lockdown.

“There was no point in leaving it all to gather dust,” says Dani.

“A few days into Alert Level 4 I realised that people needed the social connection, so I created the KeepYourBootiHome and the KeeptheBrosatHome Facebook groups to deliver online fitness sessions.”

The sessions were delivered live but also recorded and posted to Facebook so fitness was always available.

“It was all about communication and connection and even good old dress ups with a wine to celebrate the end of another Alert Level,” says Dani.

This online delivery opportunity meant Dani was able to maintain her business and now potentially grow it to deliver to more people all over Aotearoa.

“Ahuriri is extremely important to me as I have now lived here over 20 years. I am determined to keep sharing little videos with New Zealand of all the great places around Napier for fitness playtime with whanau and friends.”
