Stay active

To ensure we are ready to hit the ground running in terms of our fitness there are many fantastic videos popping up all over youtube from some great resources. It is important to ensure you are working within your own limits but you could use this time not only to build strength, but also to improve your cardiovascular system.

If running has not been your thing up until know why not talk up one of the many couch to 5km programmes - https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/couch-to-5k-week-by-week/

If general fitness is your goal why not join in with Joe Wicks PE sessions which are live every week day at 9am on you tube (or you could do later in the day on catchup.) https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1

This is also a great opportunity to work on your flexibility with either some yoga or Pilates. Local fitness and Physiotherapy companies to Poole have joined together to create Better together in Dorset and are offering a range of content from Hiit sessions, to Pilates and a range of other wellbeing resources which are free on Facebook live and youtube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCnUjC28DGuqONQ3Kgk7aXA
