Keeping ourselves fit has been more difficult this 2020 year. Even those people who rarely let anything get to them have found anxiety creeping into their everyday existence.

Maintaining an exercise routine at home can seem more like a ‘should’ than a ‘want to’ at the moment. And with so many people out of work and struggling financially, staying active can seem like much less of a priority.

In fact, exercise is one of the most powerful tools we have for staying physically and mentally healthy.
