Bowls England took a pro-active approach to the COVID-19 lockdown by launching three workout videos to keep their bowlers fit and healthy during the coronavirus restrictions, so that they are ready to start playing again as soon as they are able to get back out on the green.
I was asked to design and deliver three workouts varying in intensity to meet the different abilities and ages of their bowlers. Specifically designed with bowlers in mind, the videos range from an introduction level, suitable for all ages and abilities, that focuses on balance, flexibility and core strength, to a more advanced full body workout for the more physically able and a high intensity cardio workout for those who want even more.
The videos prove that staying fit and healthy through regular exercise and movement can still be achieved even if you’re self-isolating. You need very little space and the only equipment you need to do these workouts is a sturdy chair and a set of bowls or light hand weights.
Mal Evans, Bowls England Director of Coaching, said: “We are delighted to be able to provide these interactive workouts for our members during the current situation. We believe that keeping healthy at home is imperative to the wellbeing of our members and we believe that these workout sessions provide exactly what bowlers need at this time.”
