Top 10 fitness tips

Start lightly

While it's tempting to start the new year with high intensity activity this is a sure fire way of making it unsustainable. Whatever you start doing, start lightly.

Exercise buddy

Training on your own is hard, so stay motivated by finding a like-minded friend or colleague who can train at the same level as you.

Lounge 'Hi-Lo'

There’s plenty of online content available bringing the studio to the nations’ living rooms. Ease yourself in with Kent Sport Stay Well @ Home

Walk this way!

Walking is one of the most accessible forms of physical activity and has great wellbeing benefits as well as the obvious physical ones. 

Bicycle ride

Cycling offers many training benefits and is accessible to everyone. Virtual platforms like Peloton or Zwift bring the pro-cycling world to your living room.

Get a 'Virtual pet'

Imagine you have a dog to walk every day. Going out regardless of rain or shine to walk that ‘Virtual Pet’ will help increase your daily activity.

Power playlist

It's proven that music makes a difference when you exercise. Nowadays, you can build your own mega music mix on your smart phone.

Chill

Listening to a Podcast can help provide structure to low intensity or holistic workouts and training sessions or great company on a brisk walk. 

Park and Ramble

If you commute to campus challenge yourself to ‘Park & Ramble’. Park as far away as possible on campus and walk to your desk for added daily activity.
