Get Up, Warm up & GO..

Again there are lots of ways to get started and the NHS 0-5k is a good place to start.  Click here

It is important to warm up and stretch before any form of exercise, Emma Woodman has devised a brilliant 5 min warm up to get you going which you can view below.

 

Remember to Cool Down and Stretch too..

Emma Woodman has devised a great cool down and stretch video for when you finish your exercise which you can see below.

 

Before you embark on your new challenge, it is always best to take it slow and steady. If you have any concerns, please refer to your doctor before setting out.
