  1. Fun is definitely important! It will have such a huge impact on your motivation to get up and do something. I enjoy CrossFit because it’s like working out with your friends and if you don’t show up, you hold each other accountable!

    1. Ohhhhh crossfit.
      I think once things get better in London, and hopefully out of lockdown, I would like to join some fitness groups, including walking groups and Zumba outside. I don’t go to the gym but they are closed due to lockdown restrictions. And social gatherings minimum amount of people. There are many online classes, but I just go at my own pace walking. Having past feet and knee injuries I am restricted in what I can do.
