Helping you keep fit and active until Football returns

Welcome to Gloucestershire FA’s ‘Home of Football’. A place where you can come to find activities and exercises that you can complete in and around the home. We may not be playing football right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to future matches and keep our bodies and minds in the best shape possible for when it returns.

As with all exercises in this guide, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ exercise. In this section, exercises have been listed as Easier or Moderate, so complete the exercises that feel right for you and don’t push yourself so hard that you feel uncomfortable or unsafe.

If the exercises in this section are not intense or difficult enough for you, please take a look at our ‘Adult Footballers’ guide.

The catalogue of exercises should be used as a guide only, and you should only ever complete the exercises you feel comfortable completing. You know your own body, so make sure you are exercising in a way that is safe and sensible.
To engage with Gloucestershire FA and to have your activity shared with the football community, share your stories, videos and photos with us, using the hashtag #HomeOfFootball or by sending us an email.
