Keep Moving Suffolk
For general advice and guidance on how to keep or get active in and around your home click on the logo.
Keep Moving Suffolk is a local campaign to keep people active in and around their own homes, in response to the Covid-19 virus.
The virus has resulted in our routines changing as we all help to stop the spread.
We are backing Sport England’s national campaign called ‘Join the Movement’ which seeks to bring greater attention to #StayInWorkOut and inspire and inform the public about the many fun, and creative ways they can keep moving, The national campaign website is www.stayinworkout.org
Our aim with ‘Keep Moving Suffolk’ is to inspire and encourage people to stay active, move or move more, by sharing ideas, tips, useful links and positive stories during these unprecedented times, using the hashtag #KeepMovingSuffolk.
The website and our social channels will be constantly updated.
Official advice is to stay at home, and to only go outside for one form of exercise a day, either alone or with members of your own family, as long as you follow the 2-metre social distancing measures.
Social distancing may be difficult or frustrating, affecting our mood and feelings, which in turn could lead to unhealthy patterns of behaviour and periods of inactivity.
So there has never been a more important time to get active and stay active, and with this in mind, we have collated links and resources to cater for all abilities, ages and fitness levels.

Remember to check government advice if you think you have any symptoms linked to coronavirus.

Move More is all about the physical activity we do. Physical activity could be walking to the shops or gardening to dancing, running and chair-based yoga.
