WABI, WVII report Lynch creates YouTube channel to support physical, mental health

WABI (Channel 5) and WVII (Channel 7) reported Jon Lynch, director of sports performance at the University of Maine, has created a YouTube channel with videos supporting physical and mental health. The at-home training videos are designed for student-athletes who do not currently have access to a gym or other in-person training resources during the COVID-19 pandemic, but also are available to the public. “Stress management and mental health is essentially what it boils down to because if they’re not able to move and feel good then a whole slew of other negative implications can occur,” said Lynch, who hopes the resources will help student-athletes and others adapt and make the best of their time at home.
