The closure of gyms, sport facilities and stadiums, public pools, dance studios, and playgrounds mean that many of us are not able to actively participate in individual or group sporting or physical activities, nor watch live sporting events. #IDSDP2020 #PataGrao #BeActive
But that does not mean we should stop being physically active, nor should we disconnect from the coaches, teammates, instructors and fellow fans who not only help us to stay physically fit but also socially active. #IDSDP2020 #PataGrao #BeActiveAtHome
@WHO recommends 150 mins of moderate-intensity or 75 mins of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week, or a combination of both. WHO also have some tips on how to achieve this with no equipment and with limited space. #IDSDP2020 #PataGrao #BeActiveAtHome
