Whew!  We've been at this whole COVID thing for a while and honestly, it's taking it's toll on everyone!  From those infected by this dreaded new virus to those who have been displaced from the measures that have been taken to "Stop the Spread" and "Flatten the Curve", you'd be hard pressed to find anyone on Planet Earth who's not had some kind of off putting moment from COVID-19.  Even as things are starting to open up a little in Michigan and around the United States, we've got a long and uncertain road ahead of us until a vaccine is found, if one ever is.  The early days, when we all heard "The New Normal"?  Seems like ancient history, but the reality of that is that so much is still unknown, we've got to air to the side of caution and one thing that will be paramount, testing. 

Up and at 'em!! Or.. It's your lunch break!  Let's go!  Or.. Let's cap off your day with a great workout!  See what's awesome about Fit and Healthy With Becky on The Muskegon Channel?  EVERYTHING!  No matter what time of day, no matter when it works best, no matter how many times a day you'd like to do it...your workout is right here waiting for you on the Muskegon Channel!

Public Health - Muskegon County Director Kathy Moore joins Andy O'Riley for her weekly update for Muskegon on COVID-19. It's another fairly good news week. An update on the official numbers in the county. A huge outbreak isn't expected, however we might see numbers go up due to the increase of testing. Good things are happening, people are getting antsy..we all know it, there's light at the end of the tunnel, but it won't be Pre-COVID for a while. Thoughts and resources on best practices for the reopening of things. How to prepare and maintain precautions. Some talk about bars, restaurants and their reopening practices, they are already ahead, patrons might have to rethink some stuff as they frequent. The message in Muskegon is to stay safe and breathe a small sigh of relief.

 

We're doing our very best to keep you updated.  If you'd like to follow updates directly from the Muskegon County Public Health Office, you can click on the link below to connect directly to their website.  You can also find the information you need on the Muskegon Channel Radio App.  It's a free download for either Iphone or Andriod devices.

Last week, Becky eased you back in to the new workout routines with half of a normal Tabata routine.  She was nice.  Well, that was then.  This week, it's full tilt on the full Tabata style workout and includes all 8 segments of activity, with the rest breaks in the middle!!  Yes, she realizes that it's Monday morning and your weekend was spent under a blanket watching Netflix because it was cold out...but HOP TO IT!

You're going to need a dumbbell that suits your fitness level.  Becky, she's going big.  She's got a 25 pounder and she's pushing it hard in todays workout.  Strength, cardio and some endurance is going on here.  Along with a few of those bursts...comes a "shock" to the muscle groups and it kinda amplifies the effectiveness.  She's a Certified Personal Trainer, she knows what she's doing!

Like any of Becky's workout's, make sure you warm up, stretch out and drink plenty of water.  If you are just getting into a workout routine, make sure you check with your doctor.  Chances are you can check with them right through the phone or computer now a days!

In 2019, Andy O was asked to be the "Official Spokesman" for the Alzheimer's Association's Annual Walk in Muskegon.  It was a bit of an overwhelming task to be honest.  Emcee from a stage and ad lib.  Piece of cake.  But to be considered an "Official Spokesman" seemed to elevate things significantly and might lead to situations that were rather uncomfortable due to the limited amount of personal exposure to the horrible disease.  What if people had questions that couldn't be answered?  What if ya had to go speak to a group of "VIP's" who'd look at you thinking "Why'd they pick you?"  All kinds of reasons float through the head.  In the end though, it's about lending a hand, and getting out of your comfort zone a little, right?  So whaddya do?  Find someone who really knows what they are talking about and let them have the spotlight.

Kathy Moore, Director of Public Health - Muskegon County brings her weekly update on COVID-19 in Muskegon. We go over the confirmed cases, and the number of losses. We talk about yesterday's article and what it means. It's a good thing, but it's not time to just forget what has to be done for the time. We were more than adequately prepared and that was good. We explain the difference between "State of Emergency" and the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order. There's a big difference.

It's been a few weeks of reruns as we worked to follow the guidelines of safety for all and to observe social distancing practices.  While we still can't get to The Gym in North Muskegon to record our episodes, with Spring in the air and outdoor activities now being permitted a little more, Becky is back...safely outside on her own and we've got new episodes of Fit and Healthy With Becky for you!

Public Health - Muskegon County Director Kathy Moore joins Andy O for her weekly update on COVID-19 in Muskegon County. Number of confirmed cases, number of fatalities. How are the numbers calculated and how do people understand all of it?

“I remember sitting in the chair and listing to the prosecutor and I don’t even remember how I answered the questions.”

April is Sexual Assault Awareness month. I want to bring you two stories of survivors and a professional to talk and share with you some of the things that you can look out for and help you to overcome the heavy feeling that comes with it.

We're in the business of making sure there's some normal in your life.  Sure, it's a little difficult to get in to The Gym in North Muskegon right now due to everything going on, we're keeping you up and on your feet with Fit and Healthy with Becky and some highlights of shows in the recent past. 

We were all set to welcome Hackley Community Care as a new sponsor on the April episode of Muskegon Tonight Live as it was scheduled to happen at Smash Wine Bar and Bistro on the evening of the 22nd.  Our plans like so many others got changed, it's been a bit of fill in the gaps for us like anyone else, but we're getting pretty good at adaptation and making things work.  We are very thankful to Hackley Community Care for their sponsorship of our work here, on Positively Muskegon, Muskegon Channel Radio, and Channel 96 Muskegon.

In our commitment to bring you the best information we can about Muskegon County and the effects that are being seen by COVID-19, we welcome Public Health Director Kathy Moore in via our digital platform to speak directly to you about the number of cases we have confirmed in the county, how many have been lost and where some of the opportunities are to help stop the spread. 

Activity!!  You need it, we need it and Becky is dedicated to it!  Fit and Healthy With Becky Rewind is on the Muskegon Channel as we're doing our best to make sure we stay home, stay safe and stay healthy.  May 1st is coming soon and we're hoping that we can get back to some new episodes.  Media is considered an essential service, but where we can, we're working remotely and protecting our people and those around them.  

So, we drop back a few weeks.  Episode 132 of Fit and Healthy With Becky is a tough one.  You're going to be working on some strength and cardio this week.  Becky picked out some pretty heavy weights for her workout, you can pick what's comfortable for your level.

As always, before you start this, or any other workout program, please consult a Dr.  Drink plenty of water and don't forget to warm up, stretch out and get to it!!  Here comes Episode 132 Rewind of Fit and Healthy With Becky, on The Muskegon Channel. 

 

Victory!  Do this workout again later today.  Do this workout on your big screen!  Get the Muskegon Channel for your Roku or Amazon Fire TV device and it will be just like Becky is in your living room!

We're being pushed to the limit now a days.  Everyone is feeling the effects of COVID-19 in one way or another.  It might be financial stress.  Some are being asked to work more, some, are home sidelined with their daily routine ground to a halt.  Isolation is a key factor to some and anyone exposed to the level of confusion on social media right now is starting to see that there isn't much "normal" anywhere.
