There’s no doubt that lockdown is causing us to be more sedentary. Those who normally attend their local gym or swimming pool have found they no longer can go. Even those of us who are a bit less active are finding our usual walk to the train station has vanished, and children who are used to scrabbling up slides and climbing frames every day have found they are now restricted to the back garden – if they’re lucky enough to have one.
But exercise is vital not only to our physical health, but also our mental wellbeing. With the recent Government announcement that outside exercise is now unlimited, albeit with restrictions, there’s no better time than now to get started. Of course, with these new changes, there are understandably only certain activities you can do, whilst still maintaining social distancing with people outside your household.
So how do you keep fit during lockdown? We’ve compiled a list of ideas and resources to help you and your family exercise during the COVID-19 crisis.
