Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is working with Technogym, the Comhairle’s fitness equipment suppliers, to offer access to a free ‘Train at Home’ workout package. This will enable Sports Centre customers and the wider community to maintain their fitness levels at home.
There are three workouts available each day - Easy, Medium and Pro. It is strongly recommended that you work at your own level and at your own pace and be conscious if you have any health conditions or underlying injuries that might make an activity not safe for you.
If you have a MyWellness account, all you will need to do is to open the app each day and choose the workout level that suits you. Click on MyWellness (Opens in a new window or downloads a file) to give you a quick guide on how to set up a free MyWellness account, if you don’t already have one.
Once you have installed the app, it looks slightly different on Android and IOS devices. The key thing to look out for once you are ready to go is to look for the stopwatch symbol in the top right hand corner. This starts the built in countdown timer so that you don’t have to worry about timing. If you click on the image of each exercise, there is a demonstration video of how to do it safely.
The workouts last around 20 – 40 minutes and are great if you want to stay indoors and stay active.
If you have any problems using the app, e-mail Lisa Weir at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to help.
