If you’re looking for a way to get more active in the run-up to Christmas, Energize Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin may have the answer. Instead of an advent calendar with chocolates, Energize has produced one with daily exercises.
Energize is a local charity which aims to make a healthy lifestyle a normal part of individuals’ and organisations’ daily lives. It is one of of 42 organisations within the Active Partnerships network, which aims to increase the amount of physical activity people do each week.
The Active Advent Calendar is an annual scheme which includes daily exercises for people to complete in the run-up to Christmas. Each day features a different set of exercises to work through, along with links with guides.
“From dancing and HIIT workouts, to stretching, breathing exercises and sit to stands,” said Suzy O’Shea from Energize. “The idea is there should be something to motivate everyone to try an activity… and hopefully carry on in the New Year.”
