Students at the University of East Anglia are being offered free exercise equipment to promote physical activity during the second lockdown.
Every student flat on the UEA’s Norwich campus has offered the choice of either a ‘fitness bag’, which includes exercise mats, skipping rope, resistance bands, an ab wheel, and six agility hurdles, or a ‘sports bag’ containing a pop-up badminton/volleyball net, badminton rackets, a frisbee and a throw and catch game.

Luke Fisher, first year sport development student, said: It’s a good idea because it keeps the flat quite active without actually having to leave the flat and be concerned about coronavirus.”
Law student, Isha Ghai added it will be “fun for the whole flat to get together and do a workout to keep students fit”.
