Staying Active during coronavirus
Updated 10 September 2020
Self-quarantining and new government measures have now meant that many individuals and families across Derbyshire now need to look at alternative ways of getting physical exercise.
As a team and a wider community, we're trying to build activity into our day as much as possible, and supporting those around us to be active in a way that suits them.
We have gathered the below resources to help those looking for ideas on how to stay active during this period.
This booklet has been developed to support older people and those who are shielded to stay active and healthy at home.
15 ways to move more at home (PDF, 557 Kb)
The We are Undefeatable team have produced this short guide to show 15 ways to move more at home.
We think it's really important to take care of our own and others' mental health too so are taking the time to speak to colleagues during the day, whether this be a work related or informal conversation so please do give one of us a call if you want to have a chat.
Join the Movement campaign
Sport England's 'Join the Movement' campaign gives people fun and creative ideas on how to get active at home and encourage them to share their own experiences and join the movement online.
You can share images of the creative ways you're getting active at home using the tag #StayInWorkOut on social media channels, with the best efforts being shared by Sport England and even used in its campaign advertising!
At the campaign's website #Stayinworkout you'll find a range of home workout options – including existing free exercise content and advice from organisations such as the NHS, and workouts from popular fitness brands and influencers such as Les Mills on Demand, Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) and FiiT, many of whom are offering free content and extended trials to help people get easy access to home exercise.
This is just a quick capture of some of the organisations that are offering help and advice for how to get active at home. For a more detailed list please visit the Sport England website.
Local communities playing their part
