Long COVID & Physical Activity (Online Course)
Any Day, Any Time
Free (Active Lincolnshire Funded)
As the world continues to grapple with the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, Long Covid has emerged as a significant concern. Characterised by persistent symptoms and ongoing health issues long after the initial infection, this condition can deeply affect an individual's physical and mental wellbeing. Now more than ever, professionals in the sport and activity sector have an essential role to play in helping these individuals regain their strength, resilience, and confidence.
By working together with Lincolnshire NHS and community voluntary organisations including Shine Lincolnshire and Every-One, we have co-created a training guide for providers of physical activity to support people with long COVID to recover and manage their condition.
The practical online training course takes around 30 minutes to complete and contains videos and guidance for providers that allows them to support people with long COVID to regain their confidence and ability to undertake everyday things, including being physically active.
It outlines adaptations and changes that can make activities long COVID-friendly, many of which will be useful for other health conditions, especially those that cause fatigue.
The ideas in the guide are relevant for activities delivered in a variety of settings found across Lincolnshire including community and village halls, care homes, schools, open spaces and other non-traditional physical activity venues.
Our comprehensive course, developed by a team of experts in healthcare, sports science, and psychology, is tailored to address the unique needs of long COVID sufferers. We combine research, practical applications, and real-life case studies to provide you with a well-rounded understanding of how to design and implement effective training and recovery programs for your clients.
Whether you're a personal trainer, coach, physiotherapist, or fitness enthusiast looking to make a difference, this is an essential resource for expert guidance and support. Together, we can build a healthier and more inclusive future for those overcoming long COVID.
