Our NC Poland reports about their activies during the Corona Crisis
From March 18th, 2020 we encourage Poles to be more active in the breakfast program of Polish public television every morning. During the 6-week project, the doctor, fitness professional and physiotherapist presented on TV how physical activity improves health. We also presented simple exercises for everyone using equipment available at home - e.g. water bottles, towels. The project aimed at showing the simplicity of movement and encouraging TV viewers to move around at home despite the pandemic.
The audience is about 800 thousand people. It is a project carried out together with the National Health Fund - the only public health insurer in Poland. In Poland, all Poles are covered by their health insurance.
As part of this project, we have also prepared sixteen 15-20-minute films with proposals of exercises for everyone from children (Active Family) to the elderly. The films are published on the You Tube channel of the National Health Fund – Akademia NFZ and on our YT channel. Films currently have about 200 thousand viewing. And it’s constantly growing.
In the films, the doctor presents various aspects of the effects of physical activity on health, the fitness professional and physiotherapist presents exercises of different difficulty, using home equipment - chairs, towels, water bottles. The project aims to show the sequence of exercises to be performed at home at a time when fitness clubs and other sporting opportunities are going to be impossible to apply due to the limitations resulting from a pandemic.
