New Year, new COVID rules. So what can you do to keep moving and be active?
At home – You can exercise as much as you like in your own home alone or with your household.
Government guidance states:
Outside – You can continue to be exercise alone, with one other person or with your household or support bubble. This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area. You should maintain social distancing.
You can be active in a public outdoor place:
- by yourself
- with the people you live with
- with your support bubble (if you are legally permitted to form one)
- in a childcare bubble where providing childcare
- or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household
This includes but is not limited to running, cycling, walking, and swimming. Personal training can continue one-on-one unless everyone is within the same household or support bubble.
Public outdoor places include:
- parks, countryside accessible to the public, forests
- public gardens (whether or not you pay to enter them)

Why not wrap up warm, pack a flask and have a stroll around your local park and see what’s changed. Take care if it’s icy!
