NHS launches free HIIT and pilates workout videos

NHS launches free HIIT and pilates workout videos

The NHS has announced free weekly HIIT and pilates online classes.

The new offering is through a partnership with Instructor Live, with an Introduction to HIIT course as well as Introduction to Pilates.

The first video for both courses can be viewed on YouTube, and the NHS says there will be new videos each Tuesday and Thursday.

It tweeted: “We’ve teamed up with fitness experts @InstructorLive to bring you some exciting new workout courses.”

While the new workout videos aren’t explicitly in tandem with the news that people who suffer from diabetes (both type 1 and 2) and those who are obese are more at risk of fatality from COVID-19 , today the NHS has also announced it’s expanding its offer to help those with diabetes during the pandemic.

It says: “People living with diabetes face a significantly higher risk of dying with COVID-19 with a third of deaths in

Your free workouts have a cost

Your free workouts have a cost

Since going into quarantine, I’ve seen two of my budgets skyrocket: my coffee spending, and the money I put into fitness. With studios in my neighborhood and across the country closed due to coronavirus restrictions, I didn’t exactly see that second one coming (admittedly, I could have predicted the caffeine spike). Yet now that I don’t go anywhere, I’ve had far more time and energy to work out — and with all of my regular studios having moved to virtual sessions, I’m burning through my class cards so fast that I’m on the verge of investing in multiple memberships, just to save money.

Of course, what would really be the frugal choice would be for me to not attend my virtual classes at all. Not to drop fitness entirely — working out is, with no exaggeration, all that is keeping me sane at this point — but to switch to

That means when you’re sore after a workout, you have to figure out your own way to ease the pain. A massage gun provides quick relief by enhancing blood flow circulation and you can use

India faces spike in coronavirus cases, says study, in test for health system

Free agent T Peters aims to play in 2020

Free agent offensive tackle Jason Peters hopes to play in the NFL this year, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Friday.

The 38-year-old veteran has engaged in discussions with his longtime team, the Philadelphia Eagles, but is willing to look elsewhere, according to Schefter.

Peters also filmed a recent training video for teams to see his fitness level.

The Eagles released the nine-time Pro Bowl selection in early March, stating that they reached a mutual agreement with Peters to allow him to test free agency.

“We are appreciative of everything Jason has contributed to the organization over the last 11 seasons in Philadelphia, including building a first-ballot Hall of Fame career and helping us win our first Super Bowl championship,” the Eagles posted to Twitter.

“Jason has been an incredible leader and person both on and off the field. We will remain in communication as each side continues to evaluate its options

NASA will license its FDA-approved ventilator to manufacturers for free

NASA will license its FDA-approved ventilator to manufacturers for free

“Now that we have a design, we’re working to pass the baton to the medical community, and ultimately patients, as quickly as possible,” said Fred Farina, chief innovation and corporate partnerships officer at Caltech.

The design offers a few key benefits. NASA says it can be built faster and maintained more easily than traditional ventilators. It is composed of fewer parts, which are currently available through existing supply chains, and it can be modified for use in field hospitals like the ones being set up in convention centers. The device is built to last three to four months, so it won’t replace the current hospital ventilators, but it could fill critical shortages.

JPL doesn’t typically design medical equipment, but in a video, several engineers expressed a desire to use their skills to help address the COVID-19 pandemic. This is part of a growing trend of technologists trying to meet the

  • Sponges carry a host of bacteria, including fecal germs and bacteria that can cause diarrhea.

  • You can put your sponge on the top shelf of the dishwasher in order to let the heat kill the germs. 

  • You can also microwave a sponge to kill bacteria, but this method is not foolproof. 

  • This article was medically reviewed by Tania Elliott, MD, who specializes in infectious diseases related to allergies and immunology for internal medicine at NYU Langone Health.  

  • This story is part of Insider’s guide on How to Kill Germs.

Unless your sponge is brand new, it almost certainly harbors all sorts of germs. Some of those germs might just make the sponge smell but others could potentially make you sick.

Janilyn Hutchings, a certified professional in food safety and a food scientist for StateFoodSafety, says about sponges: “If

Google to make online shopping service free to merchants

Google to make online shopping service free to merchants

San Francisco (AFP) – Google is opening its online shopping service to merchants free of charge as it competes with Amazon in precious e-commerce and digital ads.

Merchants in the US will be able to use Google Shopping for free to proffer their wares by the end of April, and the goal is to do the same for sellers around the world before the end of the year, according to commerce unit president Bill Ready.

Google Shopping had previously showcased only retailers who paid to promote products to consumers searching online for items.

“As consumers increasingly shop online, they’re searching not just for essentials but also things like toys, apparel, and home goods,” Ready said in a blog post.

“While this presents an opportunity for struggling businesses to reconnect with consumers, many cannot afford to do so at scale.”

The closing of physical shops due to the pandemic has accelerated

Itching to exercise during your quarantine? These 7 at-home workouts are free

Fitness centers across the country have shut down amid the coronavirus pandemic. But that doesn’t mean all exercise is canceled.

In fact, online wellness communities have existed long before quarantines were encouraged. There are hundreds of fitness influencers, workout apps and virtual classes that can be accessed from a computer, phone or tablet at home, and with minimal to zero gym equipment required.

And today, at-home workouts are also inexpensive: Much of the leading online exercise brands are offering their services for free, at least for bit.

Here’s a look at seven different types of workout programs that might interest the former gym faithful:

You like intensity and dumbbells:  Sweat app
