If you’re wondering how best to stay in shape during the Covid-19 lockdown, Sport England has come up with a plan to keep you active and motivated. Join the Movement is Sport England’s brand-new campaign, funded by The National Lottery, that provides the advice and tools you need to help you maintain your fitness while the country deals with the coronavirus outbreak.

Official advice about Covid-19 is to stay at home until government advice changes, and to only go outside for one form of exercise a day, to shop for basic necessities, if there’s a medical reason and travelling to and from essential work. This inevitably means all our routines are changing.

A positive thought is that there are many different options for keeping fit at home. Sport England’s Join the Movement campaign is a great one-stop shop for fitness advice. Simply click on the tabs at the top of their campaign page to find lots of fun and creative ideas on how to get active at home, with exclusive offers and workouts from content providers such as Les Mills on Demand, Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) and FiiT.

There’s also the latest advice around getting outside, with tools to help you make the most of the fresh air during your daily walk, run or cycle. Please always follow the latest official advice on social distancing – which means staying more than two metres from others – and follow the advice on general hygiene. It’s important that you stick stringently to the guidance.

The social media hashtag #StayInWorkOut  will showcase some of the best online sport and physical activity content for use in and around your home, as well as allowing people to share their own ideas, so if you’ve found a great way to keep active online, let others know about it. Please help promote the campaign via your website and social media channels and use #StayInWorkOut on any posts that are promoting physical activity that people can do safely.

Remember to check government advice if you think you have any symptoms linked to coronavirus.
