⏰ Commit to your exercise this week 💗

Choose the times best for you, let's exercise or discuss together

The year is drawing to an end, but our community is still in full force. We don’t need to be concerned about the closed fitness centres this week, or ever again for that matter. Exercise using our videos on the largest screen in your home; and to stay connected with others, join our Exercise Together or Discuss Together events.

Find out more about the neighbourhood near where I live, where videos are created, more about the values of the work we’re doing and inviting you to join our community.

  2. Discuss Together - we all discuss a health, fitness and wellbeing related topic. We record the discussion and will share it on Facebook for others to watch. It will also be shared on this site as a podcast.

What regulars tell me

“This is a good way of keeping fit, mind and meeting lovely new friends. Especially in this winter lockdown times. Thank you all ☺️❤️”

“This helps wake me up, and energise me”

Do good by facilitating your Pungra Together next week

Perhaps these times don’t suit you? You’re in a different time zone? Or otherwise, you want to lead your own events with your family, friends or colleagues.

I’m here to help you attract people to exercise or discuss sessions that you lead. If you’re going to exercise with Pungra videos anyway, why not open up a Messenger Rooms video call and invite others to be connected with you?

A good way forward is to join one, or few, existing Exercise Together sessions. You’ll see how straightforward it is. The next stage is to provide the following to me every Saturday evening:

  1. Time(s),

  2. Facebook Messenger Rooms link,

  3. Choice of videos.

Tell your family, friends and colleagues

Who else do you think would be interested? Do they like Punjabi music? Do you have a TV in their living room? Are they at home a lot? (aren’t most of us these days?).

Remember it takes people time to adjust their schedules to incorporate exercise into their week. Start warming them up to the idea right away, share this email and encourage them to receive my free emails.

The fine print

Pungra strongly recommends that you consult with your doctor before beginning any exercise program. You should be in good physical condition and be able to participate in the exercise. Pungra is not a licensed medical care provider and represents that it has no expertise in diagnosing, examining, or treating medical conditions of any kind, or in determining the effect of any specific exercise on a medical condition.

You should understand that when participating in any exercise or exercise program, there is the possibility of physical injury. If you engage in this exercise or exercise program, you agree that you do so at your own risk, are voluntarily participating in these activities, assume all risk of injury to yourself, and agree to release and discharge Pungra from any and all claims or causes of action, known or unknown, arising out of Pungra's negligence.

That’s it for now, let’s keep each other active.
