Stay Home Get Fit

With severe restrictions on our movement it is essential for us all to remain active. I have put together a selecting of online videos which you can use to create a regular exercise programme during this period of confinement.

The videos cover all ages and abilities including children and people with health restrictions such as bad knees or back, arthritis, etc. so there are no excuses !

The videos range from 5 minutes to over an hour and cover pilates, yoga, strength work, aerobic workout, PE for Kids and even belly dancing. So why not set your self the target of doing one each day and may be by the end of this period of isolation we will have some Timberscombe belly dancers !!

  • First up are the pilates, yoga, strength, resistance and aerobic workouts videos created by the NHS.  I have listed the catagories below so you can see the huge range  of classes available.
