How have you and your team been adjusting to our new Covid normal?
“During Covid, I’ve learnt to be resilient in the face of adversities. During the first lockdown and first easing of restriction, I was still at Auburn Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre and we took to the challenge.
“We learned to use Microsoft bookings and conducted various outdoor setting type group fitness to ensure that we are still able to move with the community during this difficult time.
“Personally, I’ve learnt that every setback has its own silver lining, we always learn something from our challenges, as a result, we started live-streaming during the second lockdown in addition to our outdoor sessions,” Gwen said.

What are three things you’re most passionate about in life and why?
