[IPk] Online fitness

Les Mills classes are free online for a while here:


 Joe Wicks online PE classes for kids (but maybe good for adults too) on

 For Facebook, two of my friends who are PTs are funning live online classes
(you can also do them later):
 Stacey Jacques Fitness Daily https://www.facebook.com/groups/217717902708073/
(I did Staceybs first one this morning at 7.15, it was ace!)

The Rob Clement Class Experience Live (starts tomorrow)

 Ibm sure there are loads of others too! Ibve been making up my own. I did
pressups against the wall while waiting for my carrots to boil yesterday, and
regularly stand on one leg while making a cup of tea and brushing my teeth, a
few squats while on the phoneb&etc. Plus while working from home I stop every
hour or so to do a few pressups, squats, ropeless skipping (I imagine the rope
and twirl my arms as if Ibm holding a rope while jumping). You can have endless
fun inventing your own exercises!
Happy Birthday!
