We will do everything we can to support people to get and stay physically active, only to the basis that they are well enough to do so, and that they follow the latest Government guidelines, and above all, We must do all we can to avoid accidents, and support our heroes in the NHS at this time.
Play it safe,
Physical activity and our emotional and mental wellbeing matters during this period and, actually, we think it’s more important than ever right now. Being active in a way that is right for you can boost your immune system, improve your physical health, help manage stress and anxiety and just generally make you feel better.
In any given day, you can still go outside for one form of exercise, such as a walk, a run or a cycle, if you’re well enough and as long as you’re on your own, or with members of your household. Please always follow the latest official advice on social distancing, regarding staying more than two metres from others and follow the advice on hand washing. It’s important that you stick stringently to the guidance.
If you’re going outside to get active in line with the guidance, you should do this locally, staying close to your home and avoiding places where it may be hard to follow the guidelines or where you may require assistance from the emergency services (e.g. mountain rescue teams).
If going outside is not possible, and with us all now spending more time at home, there’s a wealth of free online content to help you get active.
We would like to thank our partners in the sports sector for sharing online resources to keep people safe and physically active and developing skills, we are encouraging people to share some of the best ideas they find online using the hashtag #SportSafeStrong
