Challenges

It ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it

 

If you remember the 1980s, you’ll love this challenge to encourage us all to move more. And if that was before your time, then this is a treat for you.

 

Each clip demonstrates simple ways that you can add movement into your day, from playing with the kids, to seated exercise, they are all things that you can easily do or set up.

 

The videos aim to give you inspiration and motivation to get active in any shape, way or form. Best of all, the videos are set to the classic Bananarama track ‘It ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it’. Not only is that a great motto for this campaign, but it will keep you humming through the day!

 

Remember, any movement, no matter how small or simple, is better than doing nothing. The Let’s Get Moving campaign urges everyone to move for at least 30 minutes throughout each day.

Surveys

Visit our Let’s Get Moving surveys page. There are two short surveys to complete, before you start a challenge fill in the ‘starting line’ survey, then after six weeks complete the ‘follow up’ survey and let us know how you got on. The surveys are short and will only take a couple of minutes of your time.

Always work at your own pace and do what feels comfortable. If you are unsure if these exercises are suitable, check with a healthcare professional first.
