Introduction

One of the more difficult things to do when you are stuck inside is to stay active. But there are a growing number of options to join simple daily exercise classes online that focus on routines that can be undertaken in your home. The sessions listed here are all provided by recognised instructors and we will added other suitable options as we become aware of them.

What sessions are available?

Move it or Lose it will be doing a daily Facebook Live session with founder Julie Robinson giving tips and demonstrating exercise routines to follow along to. To participate, make sure you go to their Facebook page and click on the like button (you will need to be signed up to Facebook to do this) and turn notifications so you are alerted when the sessions are about to start. Alternatively, you can visit the page and view videos of previous sessions.

There is also a Facebook Group, Make Movement Your Mission, that has live videos three times a day. These are scheduled for 8am, midday and 4pm (GMT). This is a private group so you will need to be signed up to Facebook, visit the Make Movement Your Mission page and click on the ‘Join Group’ button. These sessions are run by Bex Townley of Later Life Training.
