I’m not the sporty type
You might feel uneasy about exercise classes or the pressure of a gym – and many of us have bad memories of school sports. But being physically active doesn’t have to be about high impact sport or exercise — there are lots of activities you can do without having to go near a gym:
- Green activities such as Green Gyms, gardening and walking groups can offer a gentler pace of activity, plus you get the added benefits of being outdoors in nature.
- Dance can be a fun alternative to structured sport or exercise and can give you all the benefits of a good workout. The popularity of TV dance shows has meant that classes are now more widely available.
