Talking Coronavirus: How To Work Out When You're Not Leaving The House

Thursday, 26 March

Regular listeners will know that we normally focus on helping you reach a health or wellness goal. But these aren’t normal times. The novel coronavirus, or Covid-19, is now a global pandemic, and in the UK, we’re facing what the Prime Minister has declared ‘the worst public health crisis for a generation’. Right now, all we - like you - want to know, is how to stay as physically and mentally well as possible, and how we can minimise the risk of causing harm to others. So, that’s exactly what we’ll be aiming to find out over the next few episodes, where we’ll be putting your coronavirus questions to scientists, healthcare professionals and fitness experts. In this episode, Senior Editor Roisín Dervish-O’Kane chats to Laura Hoggins, PT and Head of Brand at Foundry Fitness, author of Lift Yourself and coach at FIIT about getting motivated, adjusting your fitness goals and creating a fitness routine you can stick with.
