The benefits of exercise have been long documented, from improving your health, strengthening your bones and muscles to lowering stress and anxiety. In light of the lockdown, it is important that we continue to keep active in a bid to maintain our physical and mental wellbeing and find alternative ways to keep moving.
Switching to home workouts can be tricky as not all of us have a state-of-the-art home gym, large open spaces, and an endless supply of equipment but in the light of lockdown, many fitness experts, organisations, gyms and studios are doing their part to help us stay in shape. Here, we've rounded up the best home workouts and fitness tips that'll make you look and feel your best and get those endorphins pumping!
