Exercise with the NHS. You’ll find lots of exercise videos on the NHS website including aerobic exercise, strength and resistance, pilates and yoga and more. There’s even belly dancing for beginners!
Get inspired with Sport England. Sport England’s new campaign, ‘Stay in, work out,’ is provides a full range of ideas about getting active at home and outdoors.
Exercising outdoors. If you want to get out in the big outdoors, a local park might provide the answer. Parks and tennis courts are open, and playgrounds are reopening. Take a walk, go for a run, or cycle when you can. You can go by yourself, with members of your household, with up to five others who aren’t part of your household, or if you’re the only adult in your home you can create a ‘support bubble’ with members of another household. You still need to keep two metres away (about the width of a car) from anyone you see who you don’t live with or who isn’t part of your support bubble.
