HEALTHY YOu HQ TRANSITIONS TO DIGITAL & OFFERS FREE CLASSES TO VICTORIANS
building a digital kombi community during covid-19
Sam Johnson is the Founder of Healthy You HQ, a group fitness business delivering flexible, high-quality personal training from renovated mobile VW Kombis. Sam launched the business in 2018 after serving 14 years with the Australian Army.
As with many fitness businesses, Healthy You HQ was severely impacted by COVID-19 social distancing and stay at home restrictions.
After reducing class sizes, Sam was forced to close operations during the height of the pandemic. To help keep his clients physically and mentally healthy, Sam transitioned his business, offering group workouts, yoga and guided meditation online. He also ran one on one PT sessions from his studio, and rented it out to clients looking for a private space to work out.
While most services have now resumed in Queensland, Sam is now offering his Healthy You HQ's Zoom fitness classes free of charge to all Victorians currently in lockdown.
