THE Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has set up a ‘virtual fitness club’ for its members and staff.
The network is being hosted through Strava, the social fitness app which tracks walking, running, cycling and other fitness activity.
The CIOB has set up a club, called ‘The Chartered Institute of Building’, which can be accessed for free through the Strava website or mobile application.
Speaking about the initiative Caroline Gumble, chief executive at CIOB said, “We want to find ways to support members and staff during these unprecedented times. We’ve set up this online club so that members across the world can connect with each other, and us, maintain their fitness and take some time out of their day for themselves.
“But it’s important to stay safe – we urge those who do take part to do so responsibly and in line with the public health guidance of the country they live in. There is great strength in our community, and this is one way we can support, adapt and connect with each other.”
