National Fitness Day 2018: SCL Fitness Tips

Posted by SCL Education Group on 24.09.18

In aid of UKActive's National #FitnessDay 2018, the SCL team have been celebrating the fun of fitness and physical activity, and doing their bit to encourage the nation to get moving.

This week, a handful of our SCL experts have been reflecting on what fitness means to them, whilst sharing their top tips for getting fit...

Eat healthy
Train hard
Drink water - hydrate

Steve Franks - Managing Director, Education & Training

Exercise little and often if time is a barrier to training
Of all the components of fitness, flexibility is the one that diminishes the most as you get older... STRETCH!
Always take the stairs

Scott Cairley - National Quality Manager (Education Skills)

Work out with friends or in a group - make yourself accountable and supported
Remember, every time you go you are strengthening a habit
There is no such thing as a bad workout. It is always better than no workout!
Going is always the hardest part - once you get going, you will naturally do more

Ian Cooper - Curriculum Manager

Dance is my cardio!
Learning dance routines keeps my brain fit
It's not about being good at dance, but having fun and burning calories

Vicky Clarke - Creative Art Worker

It doesn't matter how little you do, anything is better than nothing
Build up slowly and make sure you schedule rest days
Join a fun fitness group to help motivate you to attend

Sara Evans - Director of Central Operations

Do 30 minutes of physical activity 5 days per week
Do strength exercises on all major muscle groups twice per week - chest, back, legs, shoulders
Use a gym or seek home exercises using your own body weight
Eat a healthy diet! Diet = good results of any fitness programme

Marcus Headington - Operations Director
