Host Alphabet Workout
As we come to the end of another week in lockdown, it’s hard to believe it’s been almost a month since it all begun. And over the past few weeks, as part of our #AtHomeWithHost campaign, we’ve been bringing you a variety or activities to help keep you busy; including some different #WeekendWorkouts.
We’ve already tried some HIIT workouts, as well as some Yoga, but this week we’re mixing it up. We know working out can be hard at the best of times, let alone when you have to do it at home, by yourself. That’s why we thought we’d add a bit of a fun twist to this weekend’s workout to get you moving.
Spell your Host Accommodation Workout
We’ve pulled together a variety of different exercises and put them alongside every number from 1-9 and every letter from A-Z. Now, all you have to do is build your alphabet workout by spelling out your Host building name.
Each letter/number of your building’s name is an exercise to add to your workout. So, if you’re lucky enough to live with us in CB1, then you’ve got it easy. Living with us at Denton Holme Student Village? Not so lucky – you could be here a while.
Even if you’re not living with us at any of our Host accommodations, you can still use the above alphabet list to plan a workout. Why not spell out your name, your street name or the city/town you live in? Whatever goes really so be imaginative with it.
Remember to follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) for the latest updates – including our own Host Alphabet Workouts. We’d also love to see how you’re keeping fit at home. Share your workouts with us by tagging us (@hoststudentsuk) and by using the hashtag #WeekendWorkout.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
