NAP's Follow-along Isolation Workout!
Our physiotherapist Chloe McKinnon has teamed up with Aveo Newcastle to provide weekly group exercises classes with their residents. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have unfortunately had to discontinue all of our face to face group classes. To keep our participants active we’ve placed a short workout follow-along video similar to our weekly Friday group class. If you are not part of the regular group you are welcome to follow along too!
The video can be broken down into four sections (warmup, cardio, strength, cool down) so there is the option to do 2-3 rounds of the cardio and strength. To do this,scroll the bar on the video back to the start of each workout section to make it more challenging.
The sections for the video are listed here:
Warmup starts at: 1:55 mins
Cardio starts at: 6:30mins
Strength starts at: 9:40mins
Cool-down/stretches start at: 14:50mins
To make sure our group can hear the instructions, we have opted to leave out music for this session. If you would like to do the workout with some music, put some of your favourite music on in the background while following along with our class. If you’d like some music for our next video feel free to let us know and we can put on a mix for our next session.
Our big reminder for every video is to go at your own pace! If you have any current or previous injuries and/or it is your first time starting exercises please check with your GP or health professional before beginning. If you experience any pain during the exercises, have a break or cease the workout. If any pain or discomfort persists please get in touch via email or call us to let us know so a physiotherapist can help you.
If you would like more workout ideas or have any feedback for our next video, get in touch via our comments, email or phone to let us know.
We hope you all stay safe and well during this tough time.
