The Truth about Getting Fit at Home

During months of having to stay at home, millions of us have swapped the gym for our living room.

Nearly half of us are now doing online workouts – 10 times the number before the coronavirus lockdown - and almost a third are now using gadgets and gizmos that claim to help us get fit and buff at home.

But exactly what should we be doing, how much of it, and how often?

Journalist and blogger Mehreen Baig used to hit the gym four times a week, but now her fitness regime has gone entirely DIY.

She's finding it cheap and convenient - but now she wants to use the latest science to make sure she's getting maximum return for her effort.

Mehreen teams up with scientists at Liverpool John Moores University and 100 volunteers to test how much online workouts really improve your fitness - and discover the tricks to help you stick with it and avoid giving up.
