We would like to update you all on our fitness retreats and events due to take place in 2021, we hope you are all staying well and positive.
COVID19 has affected us all, however we are only interested in looking forward. Finding the positive in every situation is at the heart of everything we do, so why change now?!
It’s hard to avoid the news regarding COVID-19 at the moment and first and foremost, we would like to reassure you that the health and safety of our community and our team is of the highest importance to us.
As you may already know, since the beginning of the pandemic we have only been able to operate one retreat, cancelling retreats in Scotland, Iceland, Portugal and Canada along the way.
We have also been forced to postpone the majority of our events throughout the pandemic.
Before we update you all, we would just like to say a HUGE thank you for your understanding and support during the pandemic. Whether it has been kind messages, joining our virtual events or booking on rescheduled retreats, your support has been fantastic and has exemplified exactly what the Fitnessat58degrees community is all about, adapting and overcoming challenges with nothing but positivity!
After the most recent announcement from the government, we can finally begin to look forward and start putting plans in place for our unforgettable fitness experiences in unforgettable locations in 2021/2022.
Let's tackle the negative aspect first, although the government announcements were promising and showed us that there is light at the end of the tunnel, sadly some of our spring retreats will still not be able to go ahead due to the restrictions in place. Retreats that will sadly have to be postponed are the Cairngorm Experience Retreats on 26th-29th March, 16th-19th April and 30th April-3rd May. Also, with lockdown in place until at least 29th April in Scotland, our Arctic Experience Retreat in Iceland which was due to take place from 6th-9th April, has been postponed. We can assure you we are just as disappointed as you about these decisions, however they are sadly outside of our control and we hope you understand that we have to follow all government guidelines and prioritise the health and safety of all our guests.
Now for the more positive news! We are delighted to announce that we have managed to create new dates for those who will miss out this Spring and you will not have to wait until 2022 to join us in the Cairngorms.
