While self-isolation has become part of our daily life, it doesn’t mean that you have to stop exercising or become inactive. In fact, it’s more important than ever to incorporate some sort of physical activity into our daily routine.
Regular physical activity is beneficial for both the body and mind.
By moving every day you can better manage weight; reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and various cancers; as well as improve bone and muscle strength and increase balance, flexibility and fitness. It can also improve our mental health by keeping our minds clear and focused.
We know that being stuck at home can make exercising tough, so we’ve engaged the help of our partners to provide you with the direction and motivation to get up, get outside and get active. National League netballer, Sam Poolman, stars of the Newcastle Jets, and our friends at the Hunter, Central Coast and Central West Academies of Sport are providing a series of activities and tutorials to ensure the whole family is staying active during these challenging times.
