How ‘HowFit’ Can Work For You

Wed 16th December 2020

People in North Tyneside are now able to access the new HowFit home wellbeing and fitness plan, which has been designed to help people stay fit and healthy during the Covid-19 pandemic.

HowFit encourages users to sign up to a plan of simple exercises that can be carried out at home without the need for any special equipment.

This can be accessed through the HowFit website and leaflet that households over North Tyneside should have received.

The HowFit website provides the user with a range of exercises divided into four categories -mobility, strength, cardiovascular health and also stability, balance and co-ordination – with videos and animations on hand to demonstrate how the exercise is carried out.

Each exercise has three different difficulty levels so that anyone of any ability and age can participate.

Dr Steven Parry, Consultant Physician, whom HowFit was developed alongside said:

“Regular exercise carries a number of important benefits, which have never been more important than during the pandemic. HowFit has been designed to include exercises of varying difficulties, meaning that it is suitable for adults of any age, whether you currently exercise or not and without the need for any special equipment.”
