NHS research says, exercise can improve your mood, boost your self-esteem, and reduce the risk of stress.*

It is a key element to keeping our mind and body healthy, and this shouldn’t stop just because it’s dark and cold outside!

As part of our #WinterWellness campaign we’re focusing on ways to keep up with fitness and exercise all year round. This includes safe ways to exercise outdoors, and inside alternatives for when it maybe is just a bit too cold.

Exercising indoors could be the best option for you. One really convenient thing to come out of the pandemic is the number of online classes there are online many are affordable or even free.

Here are some workouts you can complete in the comfort of your own home: There are plenty indoors out-the-house classes and memberships you can make the most of, too:

You may of course prefer to exercise outdoors, and there really isn’t any reason to change this in Winter. It is valuable for the social element, getting outside if you are working from home, and you can’t beat fresh air. The list goes on! There are, however, ways to make sure you do this safely, and taking part in group activity may be a good option.

Examples include:
