A FITNESS enthusiast has created a quarantine home workout video to raise money for the NHS.

Carina Nea, who is a fitness instructor at Game Changer, in Harwich, and at Tendring Leisure Centre, in Clacton, has created the workout with her partner, Kit Robinson, 32, inspired by the 2.6 Challenge.

As part of the 2.6 Challenge people have been encouraged to take on an activity based around the number 2.6 or 26 and start fundraising to help UK charities, which it is estimated will lose £4 billion in income as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Carina and Kit decided to create a 26-minute full body workout after being furloughed due to the pandemic.

The couple, who are living apart due to self-isolation, are still completing the workouts together while following the Government’s guidelines as they are separated by a window.

Carina, who is from Dovercourt, said: “It is a hard time for anyone who is unable to see their loved ones during this time, which is why it is so important to remember we are all in this together.

“My partner and I wanted to do something to say thank you for the wonderful work of the NHS.

“It’s the least we can do in this current time and it is so important to support everyone right now.

“Staying active is important for both physical and mental health and it gives an instant burst of happiness - those endorphins are instant.

“This video is all about getting moving, having fun and supporting the amazing work of the NHS.”

The video can be accessed by anyone at any time at bit.ly/2L5zLWI.

However, people who want to take part have been asked to donate a minimum of £1 for the NHS via the Just Giving page at bit.ly/2YAcVyH.

Carina has also been running online weekly workout classes through Game Changer for all abilities to join in with.

The 2.6 Challenge has launched on April 26, the original date of the 40th London Marathon.
