Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we’ve been working around the clock on initiatives to help keep our members active; whilst also providing support to our community of fitness instructors.
Since social distancing measures were announced, attendance at fitness classes across the country has plummeted along with fitness venues closing their doors for the lockdown. We’ve been hard at work to respond to the situation and help the thousands of fitness providers we work with to combat this unprecedented challenge.
And we’re pleased to announce the launch of our new service: Move At Home.
Move At Home: Live-streaming and on-demand MoveGB home workouts
What is Move At Home?
Move At Home allows our fitness instructors and local studios to continue offering classes via live streaming and on-demand videos. Move At Home also features on-demand fitness content allowing you to access home workouts from world-renowned fitness experts.
The launch of Move At Home means that with MoveGB, you can now work out with your favourite fitness instructors from home, and also discover new workouts from around the UK.
We have also made Move At Home FREE for all NHS workers (as of May 17th 2021, the NHS free membership is no longer available).
How does it work?
Sign up for a Move At Home trial and get 7 days for only £1. You will get access to 100s of free taster streaming classes and on-demand workout from our brand partners so you can work out at home. To revisit your favourite classes, take advantage of pay-as-you-go access.
We’re adding new live-streaming classes every single day - there are 100’s to choose from so be sure to check to see what live-streaming classes in the UK we have available.
Once you've booked your class, you will receive an email before the class begins (usually 30 mins before) which will contain the link to stream. Or 'check-in' before the class begins - your link to the live stream will appear once you're checked in.
What home workouts are available?
From yoga in Bristol to twerking in London, you’ll get access to all our fitness providers under one membership, regardless of their location!
This means you can try out workouts from different cities which you’ve always wanted to give a go. We at Move HQ are super keen to try a remote twerking session… watch this space…
We’re working to release new streaming classes every single day, so expect new classes to appear Move At Home going forwards. From home workouts for beginners to more sweat-tastic, intense workouts.
And many of the home workouts don't require equipment, or you can easily substitute with household items - the sessions will be adjusted to accommodate limitations.
If you have a favourite MoveGB fitness instructor or know of another instructor who is struggling during this time, do let them know that you want to continue working out with them via live streaming. Tell them to get in touch and we will get them streaming as quickly as possible.
