Les Mills FREE workouts
This platform offers 95 free workouts across 8 categories. All the workouts are in English but you should find it easy to follow the visual cues. We promise it won’t automatically collect your data and it will remain available as long as the disruption from Coronavirus continues.
It is important that we follow a balanced diet to ensure that we consume the right nutrients in the correct balance, one of the easiest ways to ensure that you meet your nutritional needs is by following The eatwell guide.
This is a visual reputation of the proportion of each food that we should be consumed in a well-balanced and healthy diet.
It is based on the following food groups:
Fruit and vegetables
Bread, rice, potatoes and pasta
Meat, fish, eggs pulses and beans
Dairy foods and alternatives
Oils and spreads
You need to try and achieve this over a course of a day or even a week as it is sometimes difficult to do this in one meal.
Over the next few days we will explain each food group further.
Caring for your Wellbeing
As we all have to stay at home because of coronavirus (COVID-19), it's important to take care of your mind as well as your body. Here are a few links for more information.
