Keeping Active During Lockdown

Going in and out of lockdown is tough, and we know how especially difficult it can be to keep active whilst in the confinement of our homes. However, we want to inspire everyone to keep active and stay motivated right now.

Which is why we wanted to share with you our top tips for keeping active during the lockdown.

 

Go for a walk

Being active doesn’t have to mean taking a high impact class, or even breaking a sweat. If you are struggling to find the motivation to exercise at all, we recommend starting off with a walk. Not only will it stretch out your muscles, but it is also a great chance to get some fresh air, which can do wonders for our mental wellbeing.

 

Work out with friends – virtually!

We understand that for many, exercise classes are also a social activity. So, to combat this during lockdown, we recommend you and your workout buddy take part in the same classes from the comfort of your own homes! Just because you can’t see someone in person, doesn’t mean you can’t continue to workout with them online. Our live classes offer you and your friends the chance to participate in the same class from different locations. Sweat it out and catch up after via video call!

 

Begin your spring cleaning!

It’s a new year, and dare we say it – time to tackle that drawer, cupboard or even room that needs a clear out! With more time being spent at home than ever before, now is the time to address it. Cleaning is a great way to not only keep busy, but also keep active! Plus, the sense of pride you will feel after tackling a job you’ve been putting off for so long will undoubtedly feel great.

 

Keep up the commute

With most of us now working from home, we are no longer commuting to work. And whilst it may be nice to not sit on a train for 30 minutes, we are missing out on that all important walk to and from the station. For many, the commute to work is now simply moving from one room to another, a maximum of 10 steps and zero fresh air. We recommend trying to re-introduce your commute to work. Try a quick 15-minute walk around the block before you start your day, the fresh air and exercise will set you up for a productive day.

 

Challenge yourself to try something new

There’s no doubt about it, lockdown is tedious. But there are so many different workouts and exercise programmes you can take part in. We challenge you to try something new! Whether its daily, weekly, or monthly – take part in a class you would not usually! If you’re usually jumping up and down in HiiT, why not try Yoga or 30-minute stretch? Or, if Pilates is your workout of choice, how about mixing in some boxing?

Healthy Chicken Taco Recipe

(credits to bbcgoodfood.com)

We love this healthy Chicken Taco recipe, why not try it out this week? Tasty, healthy and guaranteed to keep the whole family happy!

Serves 4

Per serving:
Calories: 477
Fat: 24.1g
Carbohydrates: 26.2g
Protein: 34.1g
Fiber: 9.5g
Sugar: 9.1g
Salt: 0.6g

Ingredients

For the chicken:

2 tsp rapeseed oil
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
450g skinless chicken breasts

For the salsa:

4 medium tomatoes, halved
1 red pepper, quartered
1 small red onion, roughly chopped
¼ tsp rapeseed oil
2 tsp lime juice
¼ tsp ground cumin
good pinch of chilli flakes

For the guacamole:

2 medium-sized ripe avocados, roughly chopped
4 tsp lime juice
2 spring onions, ends trimmed, finely chopped
3 tbsp chopped coriander
good pinch of chilli flakes

To serve:

8 corn tacos shells
8 tsp 0% Greek yogurt
2 Little Gem lettuces, shredded
chopped coriander
lime wedges, for squeezing over

Method

1. Mix the oil, paprika and chilli on a plate. Rub over the chicken. Season with pepper and a pinch of salt, then cover and set aside.

2. Pre-heat the grill. Meanwhile, line a large baking tray with foil and lay the tomatoes (cut-side up) on it, along with the pepper and red onion. Brush the oil over the onion, and season the tomatoes and onion with pepper. Grill for 12-15 mins, turning the tomatoes and onion halfway through, until well charred. Remove and set aside to cool – put the pepper in a bowl and cover with cling film so that it’s easier to skin later.

3. For the guacamole, put the avocado in a bowl and briefly mash with a fork, leaving some chunky pieces for texture. Gently mix in the lime juice, spring onions, coriander and chilli flakes. Season with pepper and a pinch of salt.

4. Re-line the baking tray with foil and lay the chicken on it. Grill for about 10 mins until cooked – there is no need to turn it. Meanwhile, scoop out and discard as much of the seeds and juice from the tomatoes as you can (so the salsa isn’t too wet), leaving the pulp and charred skin. When the pepper is cool enough to handle, peel off and discard the skin. Chop the tomatoes and onion, and dice the pepper. Combine in a bowl with the lime juice, cumin, chilli flakes, some pepper and a pinch of salt.

5. When the chicken is cooked, remove from the grill, cover loosely with foil and set aside for 5 mins. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Cut the chicken into chunky slices and spoon over the juices. When ready to serve, lay the taco shells on a baking sheet and warm through for 2-3 mins. Serve the chicken, taco shells, yogurt, lettuce, coriander and lime wedges in separate bowls, so that everyone can build their own tacos.

  2. Gym users are asked to come ‘gym-ready’ with your workout clothes already on. Dry side changing room remain closed. For swim users, please come ‘swim-ready’ with your swim costume already on. Changing cubicles are available for use after your swim.
  3. In the centre you will find hand sanitiser stations and directional signage in place to help get you to where you need to be.
  4. You will find ample cleaning materials in centre, everyone is responsible for cleanliness so please ensure you clean all kit, including exercise mats, before and after use.
  5. Gym equipment has been spaced out and different areas of the centre have been used to provide additional space.

  7. For lane swimming we are utilising ‘double’ lanes. Swimmers need to use which lane (slow, medium, fast) is most appropriate for your ability.

We look forward to restarting your fitness goals with you and to welcoming you into the centre soon! To visit our frequently asked questions, click here FAQs.
