To support outdoor training, TruBe sessions can now be rescheduled with as little as three hours notice. You can reach out to your trainer using the number provided in the upcoming bookings section of the TruBe app and website (Located in ‘My bookings’)

Virtual sessions will continue to run as normal. This is so you can decide how best to train for you. If you need any help with this, contact a member of our in-house support team.

Outdoor and Virtual sessions include Personal training, Boxing, Kickboxing, Yoga, Pilates, Meditation, Stretching, Ballet fit, Pre/Post-Natal fitness & Running.

If you have any questions please contact a member of the TruBe support team via support@trubeapp.com

Tier 2- 2nd December Update

As of the 2nd December your TruBe trainer can continue to be there for you in-person and virtually.

We understand this may be difficult at times, that is why we are here to help. If you develop symptoms or suspect that you have been in contact with someone who has symptoms, please let your TruBe trainer know using the number linked to the booking.

You can request that your session be switched to a virtual session instead of an in-person session. Virtual training is a great way to connect, and you will receive the same benefits without leaving your home. You will be reimbursed the difference, for this you will need to contact a member of the TruBe team via support@trubeapp.com

Alternatively, if there are more than 12 hours remaining you can cancel your session through your account free of charge.

If there is less than 12 hours notice but more than 3 hours before your session is due to commence, you can request for your session to be rescheduled. To do this please contact the trainer through the number provided in the booking with your request to reschedule.

Once confirmed your booking will be amended in the app. Sessions must be rescheduled for within the next 30days of the booking otherwise will be processed as a late cancellation.

You can expect to see enhanced safety measures as part of our in-person training service. TruBe trainers will be conducting daily checks to monitor their health and be operating in a Covid secure manner.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will keep you updated accordingly. In the meantime please contact a member of the TruBe team if you have any questions.

Developing Mental Strength for Long-Term Success.

Mental Strength is the ability of an individual to effectively deal with challenges, pressure, and stressors to present their best performance regardless of the circumstances. 

There is good news:  you can become a mental champion and there is no big secret to developing healthy practices to make you a long-term success.  Professional athletes, Formula 1 drivers, and even Navy Seals use techniques to strengthen their minds. 

In yoga, we use a term called Drishti. Drishti translates roughly as ‘direction of sight’.  Where we are looking is important.  Where we place our focus is the direction we will follow. 

It is good to have goals and regardless of the size.  During the Navy Seal training, the individuals are advised to set small goals and achieve them step by step.  A small goal for the day.  E.g. Today I read a chapter of my book.  If you set a small goal and achieve it in one day you get the payoff. 

Gratitude

Gratitude is vital for the development of mental strength.  Start the day with gratitude for three things.  Keep it simple; I am grateful that I woke up in a comfortable bed.  I am grateful that I have a phone I can check.  I am grateful that it is raining.  It can be anything.  Practice your gratitude.  It can be the same three things repeated daily.  What starts to happen is we get an attitude of gratitude. 

In the longer term, there are grander strategies for developing resilience and greater mental strength. 

Time management

If you think you don’t have enough time in the day take a look at how you are using your time. Are you busy being busy?  Do you really need to be watching another episode or could you head on off to bed and get up a little earlier and give yourself more time?  Take time and Make time.  It’s something we never get back.  Time.  Use it well.

Meditation

Once you have found the time take time to breathe.  Meditation is a key factor in building mental strength.  There are plenty of techniques to draw upon to come to a good place with your meditation practice.  Sitting still and listening to what’s going on around you has positive benefits for the mind-body.
