What activities are right for me?

If you’re keen on getting fitter, being active in the comfort of your own home or outdoors can be really beneficial and there are plenty of activities you could try to keep yourself fit and healthy.

It’s good to be mindful of how strenuous the activities you decide to try are, especially if you haven’t been active in a while. To be extra safe, be sure to do a warm up before you start to prepare your body and remember to stretch out afterwards.

Before you start

Make sure you're feeling well before you start being more active. If you're not sure, check out the NHS guidance before you start.

How do I get started?

All of the activity resources listed here are free - you shouldn’t need to pay membership fees but please be aware that some online instructors will ask you to pay subscription fees, which is your choice to do or not.

If you’ve not been active in a while it’s a good idea to ease yourself into any activities you want to try, even at home. 

If you're just getting started being more active or you're not very upwardly mobile, start with some of the suggestions below.
