Get Yourself Active at Home – New Timetable

Get Yourself Active at Home – New Timetable

With another lockdown taking place at the moment, finding ways of staying fit and healthy while stopping indoors has become imperative.

Campaigning organisation Disability Rights UK has teamed up with Sense – a charity helping people who are deafblind or have other complex disabilites that affect communication – and Durham University to produce pre-recorded videos aimed at supporting disabled people and those with long-term health conditions to get active at home during the coronavirus outbreak.

This follows a survey of more than 450 disabled people in which they were asked about what they had been doing to keep themselves healthy during the first lockdown and what advice and resources they would appreciate in order to stay as fit as possible.

The timetable includes four series all led by different trainers and involving a variety of different activities that can be carried out from the comfort of your home. The sessions will cover seated cardio and strength, multi-sports activities, seated dance and body weight workouts.

The new Get Yourself Active at Home timetable – with new workouts released regularly until the end of February – is now available (see picture) and videos have been released on their YouTube channel.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
