Workout With Us: advice from our fitness team

Our fitness team have created a series of video tutorials demonstrating different workouts you can do at home, with minimal or no kit. No weights? No worry! Most of our exercises just use your own bodyweight to provide resistance. But if you do need to add some weight to an exercise, you can improvise with household items like food tins and drinks bottles.

We’ll be adding more workouts regularly, but you can check out our latest three online now:

We have lots of fitness advice and tips on our Instagram page too. 

Deskercise: tips for working and studying at home

Many of us are working and studying from home, with limited space that we may be sharing with others. We’re probably using tables and chairs that weren’t designed for long periods of sitting, and this can lead to aches and pains.

To look after yourself, it is crucial to take time away from the screen and perform some simple exercises. 

Take a look at these videos produced by our fitness team for some top tips on how to stay mobile and healthy while working at home:
