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

The Active At Home Programme

To help keep our members and service users #ActiveAtHome, BBS has worked with inclusive trainers to develop a programme to keep you healthy and active from the comfort of your own home.

Our 2022 programme consists of 3 parts:

1) A live workout week will be held at the beginning of each month, with a different exercise class taking place on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday evenings at 6pm via zoom.

2) On Thursday, an optional pre-recorded session will be available to stream via the BBS YouTube channel. The sessions will be hosted by two new providers and will involve a variety of different activities.

3) At the end of the week, the BBS team will upload recordings of the live workouts for those who were unable to attend. The goal is to do the same class on the same day of the week, every week until the next live workout week at the start of each month. All of our pre-recorded videos are available on our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/BritishBlindSportOrgUK/playlists

Our next live week is scheduled to take place from the 6th to the 10th of May. View the schedule below:
