A personal trainer is offering online gym classes to his clients in a bid to keep them active while in isolation.
Barry Stephen, 38, who works at BSPT (Barry Stephen Personal Training) on Ann Street, is encouraging members to make use of equipment they may have at home such as resistance bands and dumbbells.
The personal trainer started to film virtual classes after the gym closed on Friday following government advice.
He said: “We’re trying to keep everybody as healthy and as motivated as possible during what is obviously a difficult time.
“It’s not possible for us to see clients at the moment so we’ve moved all of our services online.
“We have also set up a Facebook group so everybody can continue to communicate.
“I think it will help people to stay motivated because although they might be in isolation alone, it feels like they are working out with others.”
BSPT is also donating £5 of every membership fee to Aberdeen-based foodbank Somebody Cares, which is running out of essential products such as tinned food and pasta and its stock is decreasing quickly despite help from local retailers and businesses.
A volunteer said: “We need to generate some more food as our stock levels are decreasing quickly.
“Other food banks in the city have nothing left, meaning that more people are coming here.”
Donations can be handed in at its warehouse on Greenwell Road, Altens.
