A fitness instructor received an unexpected knock at the door during one of her online workout sessions after she was mistakenly reported for breaking Covid-19 restrictions. 

Louise Lewis, owner of Aspire Fitness, was hosting a virtual work-out session at her studio in Rhos-on-Sea with flashing lights and music playing when she heard someone “pounding on the windows and door”.

Startled, she told her clients via the webcam that she would have to stop the session to see what was going on.

When she opened the front door she was shocked to see three police officers there who told her that she had been reported for breaching lockdown restrictions.

She invited the officers in to show them that she was in fact alone and was hosting a virtual fitness session with two other women online.

The mother-of-two said: “It was just crazy. All of a sudden I just heard this pounding on the windows and on the door.

“It really gave me a fright, I was scared because obviously I was there by myself at night and it was dark out.

“I didn’t have the lights on outside because the studio is closed so it really scared me.

“I was so relieved to see that it was the police and not a serial killer!

“They were lovely and glad to see that I was there by myself and I was abiding by the rules after I explained my set-up to them.

“I want the person who reported me for breaking Covid rules to know I wasn’t doing anything wrong.

“But I also want to thank them because now the police have taken my details, they know which nights I’m there so if anything gets mentioned in the future they’ll already know what the situation is.

Louise Lewis, 40, has been running Aspire Fitness for four years.

“The thing is if this person had just walked around the corner and looked through the window they’d have seen for themselves that it was totally innocent.

“I’m just trying to run a business and do the right thing while keeping my business going during the hardest times.”

The 40-year-old added: “It’s been so difficult going from 25 people in a class where everyone’s happy with a buzzing atmosphere to to two or three online, it’s been a real kick in the teeth and a big adjustment.

“I’ve had no choice but to evolve and adapt the business to make it work through lockdown.

“We don’t know when this will end to what will happen on the other side so I’m lucky to have the option to offer online fitness classes.”

Having seen the funny side of the incident Louise has since shared the footage of the officers intercepting the workout session to her Facebook page.
