Get moving in your own time with our video workouts

Here at Move the Masses we know that not everyone can make a free pop-up workout. We totally get that. But did you know you can check out a Move the Masses workout online? Hmmm, we are not sure you do.

So... the reason we have 'filming days' is so we can film people doing exercises at our move zones (the name we give to the area in the park or open space where we do workouts) so you, the general public can follow them, in your own time.

We make simple videos from the filming at three levels. Get Moving, is a basic level which anyone can have a go at no matter what level of fitness you are (or aren't). Move More is our intermediate level and pushes you just that little bit more and Move Massively is pretty hardcore and a great goal to build up to.

The idea is that you can go to your local park and follow the exercises from your phone, and build up a little workout using exactly what is there. We use play equipment and park furniture as our outdoor gym. You can do tricep dips on a bench and press ups on a bike rack. And once you have followed a couple of workouts you get great ideas of what you can do all over the place! There is no need to spend money on the gym when a free outdoor gym is all around you.

So how do you view these workout videos?

- Firstly head to our move map where a map of the city will appear with 'pins' in showing you all our move zones

- Click on a 'move zone pin'

- Click on 'view workouts'

- Choose the Get Moving, Move More or Move Massively tab and click the play icon in the middle of the video.

Why not check out our latest video from Glen Gardens in Heworth?

Or see how to get moving at Park Grove School Field in The Groves?

Alternatively, why not check out our YouTube channel and view all the workouts all over the city.

And that's not all. When you register with Move the Masses (and we would LOVE you to register!), you can start logging your workouts and amassing points! Ooohhh... we know! It is exciting!

We have been very busy filming, but not all our move zones have their workouts filmed just yet, so why not get involved? Our next filming day is on Thursday 11th July at Millennium Field in Fishergate. We will be there from 9.30am and would love you to come along. Not only do you get a great free, fun workout, but you are helping many others in the future to get moving too. Win:Win! Sign up for that film-it session here.
