British Blind Sport Active at Home

British Blind Sport inclusive instructors, have provided you with some new audio led follow along sessions to help keep you active until next months ‘Live Workout Week’

For those of you who are new to the programme, it consists of 3 parts:

1) A live workout week will take place during the first week of every month, with a different exercise class each evening at 6.00 pm via zoom.

2) Each of our instructors provides a pre-recorded audio-led class that has been designed to help you progress and develop your strength, endurance, and flexibility. The idea is to do the same class each day of the week, every week until our next live workout week.

3) Our instructors will set participants challenges each month and we encourage you to keep records of your results and post them in our Active at Home Facebook Group

BBS New ” Active at Home” Virtual Program!

British Blind Sport adapts virtual delivery programme

British Blind Sport New ” Active at Home” Virtual Program!

As restrictions begin to differ vastly across the UK, British Blind Sport have decided to change their Workout Wednesday programme to something with more flexibility and permanence.

Rather than have one workout per week, BBS will now run a live workout week at the beginning of each month with a different inclusive class each night from Monday to Friday at 6 pm.

The timetable for the first live week of the Active At Home Programme is as follows;

Main BBS  Active at Home  Link

For more information, please contact BBS Participation Officer, David, on david@britishblindsport.org.uk or phone 01926 424247

Following these live workouts, BBS will release “follow up” exercise sessions for each different class so that participants can improve and build on their performance throughout the month – until the next live workout week.

BBS think this new programme will provide more structure to the online workout series, with the pre-recorded follow on sessions allowing participants to take part whenever they have time and motivating them to progress in their chosen classes.

One participant said, “I’m finding these workouts fantastic!  Currently, self-isolating and can’t get out to walk or run. These workouts are keeping me sane!”

Another said, “It’s nice to do exercise alongside other people (even virtually!) and have very motivating instructors who speak to the participants and correct our positions. It’s a great idea!”
