Being physically active is an essential ingredient for our health and wellbeing whatever our age. It positively benefits us in countless critical ways, physically and psychologically. The Chief Medical Officer's own physical activity guidance highlights the benefits of maintaining muscle strength, balance and flexibility. It can also boost your immune system. 

If you're not as fit as you once were, or more gentle or alternative exercise is for you then here are some ways to get and keep yourself moving during the coronavirus lockdown.
