Launch of Silverfit @Home - senior workout videos

Due to the suspension of our Silverfit exercise sessions from March 23rd, we launched Silverfit @Home - a series of online workouts, brought to you by our instructors, that can be followed in the comfort of your own home with little or no equipment required!

Videos were initially released at 10am every day to follow along, from 19th June content will be less frequent as some of our outdoor sessions have resumed.

All content remains on our channel for Silverfitters to do in their own time.

Silverfit @Home YouTube channel, can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzG9yqTx20nbmv0nbYHJJ7w/
