Clare gave some advice to people who want to remain fit during the quarantine. “Keep it light. Don’t take life too seriously. Get up and do it, you’ll feel better if you do something physical or productive as soon as you get up,” said the dancer. “Even 10 minutes of light exercise first thing will boost your mood and endorphins and make you have a better day.”

“We are all responsible for our own health and well-being, we are just here to give you a helping hand along the way. We are posting short clips and doing live workouts on our Facebook and Instagram, whether you want a 1-minute plank or a full hour of Pilates, dance, stretching or fitness, we have it all,” continued Clare. “You deserve to feel amazing. All our workouts and videos are being done for free. We just want to share some fun and fitness for all during this difficult time.”

In an interview with Caters News, Clare said she runs a dance school therefore she has a lot of costumes that she makes herself. “We were meant to be having a show in July, so I’d taken them all home to fix ahead of that. I was mending the Eve costume, and because it’s a stretch fabric it is actually much easier to work with while you are wearing it, so I put it on,” said the dancer.

It was at that moment that Clare realized it could be a great opportunity to take some funny photos. She send the pictures out to her friends and one of them dared her to take Hendrix out for a walk in the costume.

“When she said that, how could I not? After I posted the first clip online, people said watching it was the highlight of their day and I realized just how much of a bad time a lot of people must be having at the moment and how everyone needed something to laugh about,” said Clare.

“Laughter is the most important medicine for everyone, now more than ever. For me, mental health is as important as physical health.” said Clare. “You can have a fantastically fit body, but if your head is full of negativity, you aren’t healthy.”
