Staying active while we're at home

We may not be able to get to the gym or enjoy our favourite sport right now, but that doesn't mean we can't continue to look after our fitness. If anything it's more important than ever as keeping active not only maintains physical fitness and lifts mood it also helps build a healthy immune system.

So, while they may not be able to welcome you in person, our TraffordCity sport and fitness experts are here to help you stay fit while you stay home. And of course, prepare for when you can get back to it right here at TraffordCity...

Squats – 20 seconds

Your thighs and knees take a lot of punishment out on the slope.

Lunges are a brilliant all-round exercise that not only build strength in your legs, back and abdominals, but also do wonders for your stability and balance – crucial components of any proficient skiing or snowboarding technique. Try to maintain good form throughout and keep your eyes looking dead ahead at all times. 

Plank – 30 seconds
