Physical exercise suddenly became an essential part of our daily routines in early spring; it was on the news, in the papers and on social media…
Suddenly everything changed because of the measures put in place to combat the spread of Covid-19. As a result, we all had precious little time to spend outdoors and many of us used that time to walk, jog and run with others from their household.
As the world returns to normal, our time will once again become precious and our routines may well return to something like the way they were. But that certainly doesn’t have to mean an end to jogging and running.
We have clean, safe gyms equipped with everything needed to run, jog or even walk safely whatever the time of day, season or weather. We will soon be opening our doors, so if you are looking to build upon what you’ve done so well in starting, there’s never been a better time!
Running of course, isn’t for everyone, yet still many of us; newly aware of the long term risks of a sedentary lifestyle have done everything possible to stay active, gardening has been at the top of many lists, especially with such wonderful spring weather. But it didn’t end there; people all over the country have poured their efforts into decorating, renovating, cleaning and decluttering. Staying active and keeping busy.
Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing to keep that mindset as we come out of lockdown, turning those dark, difficult times into something positive for the future? The house might be gleaming now, the garden looking amazing so why not take up a sport or visit the gym to keep up that great work you’ve already started?
If sport isn’t for you, maybe cycling or gentle weight and resistance exercises could play a part of your new ‘normal’. Our trained staff will be looking to offer all the inspiration advice and encouragement you need.
It’s been a record-breaking spring where the beautiful weather is concerned. The seemingly endless blue skies and warm temperatures are always welcome, yet tinged with a sense of frustration over the past few months for those who love to swim and spend time cooling off beside the sea or in their local pools.
Swimming pools up and down the country closed their doors back in March but InspireAll are getting ready to reopen our pools to the communities we know love and rely on them.
Things might look a little different as we are hard at work ensuring everyone can enjoy their time at our centres safely, but one thing is certain, the time when you can dive back into an activity that is great for both health and mental well-being is almost here!
We are all, slowly but surely working our way back to a sense of normality. If you’ve been missing the facilities, services and everything else that a visit to your local leisure centre can offer then take heart, the day when we reopen our doors is closer than ever.
If during the last few months you’ve discovered a love of physical activity and the physical and mental health benefits that come with it just imagine what you’ll achieve with us!
