Tips for getting active during coronavirus

• Try a free workout on YouTube. There are options for all fitness levels, from yoga and strength workouts to Pilates and high intensity interval training (HIIT).

• Our This Girl Can – Victoria ambassador Sana has some great tips on exercising at home.

• Try an interactive online class - personal trainers, dance instructors and other qualified fitness professionals are using platforms like Facebook Live and Zoom to get people active. This provides social connection too.

• Create a strength routine using cans/jars of food or filled water bottles as weights. Grab your weights and do bicep curls, squats and lunges.

• Run, walk or star jump on the spot for 30 seconds to get your heart rate up.

• If you are feeling well and not in self-isolation / quarantine, you can go outside to exercise. Walk, run, cycle or play sport. Remember to stay 1.5 metres away from other people and avoid touching your face. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you return indoors.
