We want to help you maintain your fitness and keep your mind and body healthy, whether you’re working from home or self-isolating. Remember to stick to your normal routines as much as possible: wake and eat at your normal times and exercise regularly – it really will help to keep your mental health in check.
Exercise “decreases stress and anxiety” says Becky Hill, fitness trainer and therapist. “Everyone is stressed at the moment and people aren’t sleeping,” she says. “But if you’re moving, you’re likely to sleep better.” – BBC News
While we carefully select our recommended apps, Active Nottingham is not responsible for any of the content provided. Please follow all safety instructions carefully and enjoy your workout.
If you’re not shielding or isolating, you can still be active outside. Remember to keep your distance from others, tat least two metres (three paces) away from people when you’re out and about.
Please stay safe if you choose to exercise outdoors – follow all government guidance on exercising outside.
You could go for a run, a bike ride, a brisk walk, or enjoy a leisurely dog walk.
…or dust off your tennis racket
Our outdoor tennis courts are now open to play on, by advance booking only, for just £10 per hour. We’ve done lots to prepare Nottingham Tennis Centre for social distancing, and make tennis safer.
Don’t forget to bring your own racket and balls (with your name written on them)!
Fresh air and movement are both good for you, and Nottingham’s Parks are still open. We’re lucky enough to live in a city where award-winning parks and open spaces cover 20% of the city’s surface.
Please enjoy responsibly – only go as part of your daily exercise, alone or with your household, and practice social distancing whilst you are there.
If you’re still reading – thank you! We know there’s a lot of new information floating around at the moment, but we can do this!
