Exercising At Home

Exercise is an essential part of healthy living, and vital for ongoing effective recovery after any cardiac event. Being inactive is also a risk factor for heart disease.

With the gyms closed due to Covid-19 it has been wonderful seeing everyone out and about walking the neighbourhood. As the temperature starts to drop or on those rainy days it’s good to have some simple movement routines you can do at home to keep moving, improve your balance and mobility and help keep your mental health in check.

We have been in contact with the team from Exercise Right to share with you some of their amazing home workout routines from their group of Accredited Exercise Physiologists to help you through this time of social isolation.

As always before you start a new exercise regime chat with your GP or cardiologist about what is right for you.
