Moving at home

Moving More At Home, That Counts!

The Hulme family from Tameside share how they've been keeping moving in their home during lockdown.

That Counts!

Everything counts, from dancing while doing the vacuuming, to getting muddy knees in the garden and enjoying an online yoga class in the living room and whatever works for you. To make sure activity counts it needs to be for 30 minutes each day for adults, you should feel slightly warmer and slightly out of breath with your heart beating a bit faster. Feeling a little sweaty is normal too.

Watch Laura, Tony and Peter’s stories and top tips to move more and stay motivated. To inspire others during these challenging times, please share your photos, videos or messages about how you’re managing to move at #ThatCounts #GetYour30In. Find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram @ThatCountsGM.

We know that not everyone doesn't have access to the internet. So we've created a leaflet which you can download and print out to support people you know to keep moving whilst at home. Download the leaflet here.
