Staying #ActiveFitSporty during COVID-19

Staying #ActiveFitSporty during COVID-19

It’s important to stay #ActiveFitSporty during COVID-19 if you are able to. Exercise benefits both your mental and physical wellbeing.

With new government guidelines you can still go outside once a day for exercise (like walking, running or cycling). However, this can only be done on your own or with people you live with.

Alternatively there are plenty of ways to stay #ActiveFitSporty inside or in your private garden. Have a go at a few of these and tag us @FemaleSportsForum

We will add a new idea everyday so check back in for new ideas.
