Keeping active from your own home

During this time of isolation, a lot of us are unable to get out and about and are not able to keep as active as we would like to. Perhaps the time has come to consider looking at the options available which provide guidance and advice on keeping active in your own home. The Plymouth U3A Committee invite their members to take the opportunity to do this by referring to the following websites.

At nhs.uk you’ll find lots of different exercise videos by putting ‘fitness studio’ into the search box and clicking search. There’s a wake up workout, belly dancing, couch to 5k and beginners aerobics. Also strength and resistance classes with no equipment needed, Pilates and yoga with specific options for those with back or knee problems, arthritis and osteoporosis, and a seated yoga workout. Why not give it a try?

Alternatively, try a simple ballet exercise class aimed at the over 50’s, balletbasedmovement.com with Susan Jacobson who demonstrates simple moves with her Mother Elizabeth who is in her mid 70’s.

Sportengland.org has advice and video classes for all age groups and for less able people. Tips and guidance on how to keep/get active in and around your home with a section for older people.

We’ll get back to a fitter, leaner U3A in no time!
