Join the movement

Join the Movement, a National Lottery-funded campaign helping us all find ways to get active.

We understand that if you’re new to getting active it can feel a bit scary, so we’ve put together some top tips to help you get started and feel the physical and mental benefits that even small increases in physical activity can bring.


Ideas to get moving

We’re all about simple, fun and free ways to get active, both indoors and outdoors, that you can enjoy safely.

Below are a few suggested ways you can start your journey to getting moving.


Get active at home

We’ve pulled together a selection of online exercise platforms with on demand fitness content who either provide free access or have teamed up with us to offer extended trials.

So, whether it’s first thing in the morning, a break from the home office at lunch, or a way to kick off your Friday night – this content is here for you, when you need it.

The options below cover aspects of general fitness to help you get or keep active

Get active away from home

There are no longer any legal coronavirus-related restrictions in place, meaning all sport and physical activity can place as normal.

However, please follow social distancing guidance if it’s still being implemented at a specific location. It’s also important to still follow good hygiene practices and to wash your hands when you get home.
