3 apps to help women stay active during c-19

By Get Active, in partnership with the Sport Tech Hub

While the gender gap is closing, research by Sport England indicates that men are still more likely than women to follow an active lifestyle. The barriers to women’s involvement in physical activity and sport are numerous and complex – and undoubtedly, with everyone staying at home due to the covid-19 outbreak, physical activity is more important than ever. 

Working in partnership with the Sport Tech Hub, we have compiled a range of free/freemium solutions that can help you get more active, manage your health or combat social isolation – check them out below! 

 

Baby2Body

Baby2Body provides personalised wellness, home workouts and nutrition plans through trying to conceive, pregnancy and motherhood.

The app also promotes mindfulness, beauty and fashion tips to make sure that you have the confidence to feel and look your best! 
Expecting mums can also find information on how to keep your little one healthy and happy. 
 
What do we like about this app? 
This app is great for mums who are unsure of safe exercises to do throughout each trimester; the forum also provides you with opportunities to chat and get advice from fellow users of the app, which can be really reassuring for first-time mums!
