We are all spending more time at home than we might like!
But of course our advice is to stay safe and follow the corona virus guidelines.
Staying physically active is more important than ever, even if it is just in small chunks around the house. We can leave our homes for exercise, maybe a walk or a run but remember to keep your distance and follow guidelines to help prevent the virus spreading.
We are now facing a challenging few months, it’s getting colder, darker and wetter, but our Doctors and nurses are strongly advising us to stay active.
Being active is good for our physical and mental wellbeing, it will help us be more resilient and improve our immunity. Being active helps our NHS

Taking part in online exercise/ activity classes
As with all exercise programs, you need to use common sense. Choose an exercise program/activity that’s suitable for you. Ensure you are fit and well to take part, make sure you are warmed-up, keep well hydrated and stop if you feel unwell. You take part at your own risk and should seek medical advice if appropriate.
