Covid-19 Pandemic: Help people with sight loss get active at home #SightLossActive

#StayInWorkOut

With current Government advice recommending against non-essential contact and all unnecessary travel, British Blind Sport is joining with Sport England and encouraging our VI service users to #StayInWorkOut.

At British Blind Sport, we don't believe staying at home should mean doing less physical activity than normal!

Physical activity is proved to relieve stress, improve mental health and boost the immune system, and we will do our best to continue to help you achieve this.

As such, we're happy to have permission to provide you with some audio exercise programmes, covering a wide range of activities such as Yoga, Pilates, Cardio, Bootcamp and Strength among many others.

Online Resources

We have a variety of resources already on our website to help you stay active during social distancing, you can find a variety of activities using the links below;

We recommend you watch and follow the below Injury Prevention Screening video from Stronglines Physio. This video shows how you can understand the endurance and strength of key muscle groups in your body and strengthen them to prevent or reduce the risk of injury. Following this video alongside our other workout content is a great way to protect against injury and prevent pain whilst exercising.

We hope you enjoy these accessible workouts and continue to stay active and healthy whilst at home. Whilst we are happy and excited to bring you new activities via virtual delivery, we are a charitable organisation and would appreciate any donations you can make to allow us to keep providing this content for free.

We have also created a brand new Facebook group, British Blind Sport: Stay In Work Out , which is dedicated to the #StayInWorkOut initiative, and where we are encouraging our followers to swap their at-home workout tips and tricks and become part of the #BBSTribe!

You can join our group here: British Blind Sport: Stay In Work Out.
