County Durham residents are being offered a helping hand to stay active during the lockdown

The Council has teamed up with TechnoGym to provide free, daily home workouts and a range of challenges via their MyWellness app.

Each day, you can access three levels of workout, with weekly challenges and special workouts, developed by the county’s local instructors, to keep residents motivated during this oppressive time.

The digital workouts and weekly challenges start tomorrow, Saturday 18 April, and are free for anyone who has registered via the council’s website and downloaded the app.

It is hoped that the MyWellness app will keep people healthy, motivated and able to make the most of the space they have at home, and outdoors, whilst obeying government regulations.

Cllr Carl Marshall said: “Even though people are currently unable to attend their local leisure centre, community fitness class or walking or running group, we are committed to continuing to provide a service to our customers and residents. That’s why we have teamed up with TechnoGym in the hope that the MyWellness app will keep our residents and members active, motivated and healthy until we’re able to welcome them back to our facilities and community programmes in the future.

“Our dedicated staff have put together a number of challenges and workouts to try at home, so we hope this digital replacement will be enough to keep people engaged and raise their spirits during these unprecedented times. We hope everyone stays safe and well, and we look forward to seeing them again when we reopen.”
