#StayInWorkOut: How to keep fit during the coronavirus lockdown

Basketball England is backing Sport England’s #StayInWorkOut campaign to keep the nation active while at home during the coronavirus outbreak.

We’ve got a selection of online exercise platforms with on-demand fitness content which either provide free access or are offering extended trials.

So, whether it’s first thing in the morning, a break from the makeshift home-office at lunch, or a way to kick off your Friday night – this content is here for you, when you need it.

See below for links and follow our social media channels where Great Britain and England strength and conditioning coach Mark Williams is leading regular online workouts and – via our partners at Jr NBA – stars and coaches from the NBA are sharing their skills and workout video tips.

We are also sharing the great content being created by our members and the basketball community. Use the hashtags #TogetherWeAreBasketbALL and #StayInWorkOut.
