Self isolating & social distancing have become hot topics across the UK this past week with school closures and vulnerable adults staying home for the foreseeable future. But how do we stay fit and healthy through all of this? We’ve compiled a list of 5 videos suitable for different members of your family to do just that.
1. P.E. with Joe Wick
At 9 AM on weekdays your school aged kids might like to join The Body Coach for “PE with Joe”. No additional equipment is required.
2. Tumble Tots
Tumble Tots offers groups for children from 6 months through to school aged children, but with groups and social gatherings on hold the leaders have set up Home sessions weekdays at 10 AM. You may need a few props, but your little ones will enjoy keeping fit with nursery rhymes.
3. Learn how to dance
Have you ever wanted to know how to do one of those crazy Tik Tok dances? This dude can break it down for you. He also does Hip Hop and Fortnite moves which means that your teens should be kept busy for a while!
4. The Green Goddess
She’s back. Diana Moran also known as ‘The Green Goddess’ was on BBC Breakfast this week talking about the importance of just keeping fit when your isolating. At 80 years old she’s still keeping active.
5. Yoga with Adriene
Yoga is good, not just for the body, but also the mind. Adriene has been a yoga instructor on YouTube for 8 years and has just finished her newest programme: HOME. You’ll find a lot of different videos to help you relax and stay fit.
Just the start
We hope that you have enjoyed these videos and we hope that you are now well on your way to keeping active and fit during these uncertain times. Of course, this is only a small selection and there are plenty of other choices out there for you to choose from. If you have any favourites, please feel free to share them with us and everyone else in the comments below.
I have worked in the community for the past 15 years mainly with young people. I have a keen interested in involving people in their communities and supporting them to make real positive change.
I volunteer as a Rainbow/Guide leader, run 2 Young People's Centres for Barnsley Council, and grow vegetables on my allotment.
You might spot me out and about it the community with my crazy dog and even more crazy husband who is a photographer.
I wanted to work on this project as I love hosting events, even more so when they benefit the community and I'm excited to see where this project may take us!
Hope you guys join us for the journey.
