Did you manage to remain active during lockdown? 23 Aug 2021
Covid-19 lockdown has changed our habits. I know that I had to stop going to the gym and increased my walking because I found it beneficial for my mental as well as physical health.
After lockdown, when I started treating again, I noticed that there was an increase in clients saying that they had taken up running or cycling because the gyms had closed. Now the gyms are open, so will go back but others will continue with their new sporting activities.
It was encouraging to see a report by Sport England that most adults who classed themselves as “physically active” maintained a good level of exercise during the pandemic. However, a quarter of the adult population in England is now classified as physically inactive, struggling to meet the recommended daily exercise amount of 30 minutes per week.
I know from my own personal experience that the pandemic has a huge impact on your ability to stay physically active and engage in sport.
So now as everything is open, may be its time to go back to gym or re-start your favourite sport. Remember a sports massage is a great way of helping support your body as you train.
