Covid-19 and the changing geographies of exercise

Simon Cook, Sam Hayes

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The lockdown and social distancing measures introduced in the UK since March 2020 have forced and invited changes to the way exercise happens in the UK. With the closure of gyms, classes, pools, pitches and courts, the mass spatio-temporal restructuring of everyday lives, and the need to maintain social distancing have transformed the usual patterns of who, where and how people exercise. Some of these changes will be short-term but others hint towards longer-term changes and considerations, particularly regarding the inequalities and politics of exercise they illuminate.
