The City of Wolverhampton Council’s leisure service, WV Active, is keeping residents active with free online workouts for people to enjoy at home.

The WV Active website has a dedicated page of ‘virtual’ workouts for children and adults for all abilities to take part in from the safety of the house during the coronavirus emergency.

The page includes a link to an online hub from global fitness leader Les Mills. The Les Mills On Demand service provides instructor led classes including favourites such as BodyAttack, BodyPump, BodyBalance and BodyCombat.

Children’s Born to Move classes are available on the Les Mills hub and are suitable for young people of all ages.

Meanwhile, the fitness team from WV Active are also holding weekly workouts live on the WV Active Facebook page. All live workouts are made available to view and take part in afterwards.

The WV Active website will be updated with new workouts regularly whilst social distancing is in place and residents are required to stay at home. 

Councillor Steve Evans, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for City Environment, said: “It’s important that people look after their physical as well as mental health during the coronavirus lockdown, and with so many people staying at home to help prevent the spread of the disease, it’s great that they are able to enjoy workouts at home thanks to WV Active.”

The latest information and guidance around coronavirus is available at GOV.UK and on the council’s own coronavirus pages at Coronavirus advice and information. There’s lots of advice on how people can protect themselves and their families from coronavirus from the NHS at Advice for everyone - Coronavirus (COVID-19).   

The council’s Stay Safe, Be Kind campaign offers clear and simple advice about how people can help themselves, and how they can support others who may be particularly vulnerable at this time. For more information, please visit Stay Safe, Be Kind.
