It is very important to regard this spell in quarantine as an opportunity rather than a jail sentence. With restrictions in place on why and how often you can leave the house, many normal exercise sources aren't currently available.
Aspire Health and our partners have some fantastic resources available to keep you active at home during these testing times.
We now have some LIVE classes being delivered by our instructors – for up to date information visit our Aspire Health Facebook page
We also have the Aspire@Home 6 week home bodyweight workout
HOME SWEAT HOME to keep you moving whilst at home
Sport England pages are designed to provide inspiration and trusted information to the public about how to get active in and around the home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Working From Home
Set up your workspace
Find an area in your home that's conducive to working, whether it's a desk or the couch. Just make sure it allows you to stay focused.
Stick to your routine
Wake up early, take a shower, have breakfast or a cup of coffee. This helps prepare your mind and body for a productive day of working.
Have a to do list
Before you start, list down your priorities for the day. Set pockets of time to complete your tasks and make sure you stick to your schedule.
Check-in with your boss and colleagues from time to time. Update them on your schedule and deliverables, especially if there are any changes.
Check out these desk-based exercises
The Aspire Health Team are here for you at this testing time. If you need any advice, tips or support around health, fitness and wellbeing, please follow us on FaceBook at Aspire Health, direct message or email at

A new Active at Home booklet from Public Health England (PHE) aims to help older adults keep up their activity levels while isolating due to coronavirus (Covid-19).
A drop in physical activity levels can lead to physical deconditioning that increases the risk of falls, loss of physical capacity and increased need for care during the coronavirus crisis.
