Long COVID

Moving and getting active: getting started

In this series of 5 videos, we’ll be guiding you through some exercises to help build your physical strength and muscle after having COVID-19. 

It can be useful before you start to think about what you want to achieve from watching these videos. Having a goal gives you something positive to work towards and helps you recognise your progress.  

These answers are just for you. You can enter them here or think about them on your own. After you have completed the questions, we will offer you the chance to email your answers to yourself or print them out, so you have a record. 

The questions have been designed to help you apply the techniques in your daily life and meet your personal goals. Nothing you put on this form will be read by anyone but you - unless you choose to share it. You might want to share this information with family or friends.

My goals 

Having a goal gives you something positive to work towards and helps you recognise your progress. Talk to your friends and family about them. Set yourself achievable goals: 

  • think about what you enjoy doing
  • start at a level that’s right for you
  • build up gradually, at your own pace

And celebrate when you reach your goal!
