Abstract

In the first chapter of the community sport section, the impact of COVID-19 on physical activity and inactivity is investigated. Given that a lack of physical activity can have severe consequences for the general health of individuals, whether they are young or old, understanding the impact of lockdowns and government health policy interventions is a challenging but critical task. Here, Chapter 21 takes a holistic approach and explores the impact of COVID-19 regulations on the physical activity of both sedentary people as well as professional athletes. The chapter also highlight the importance of home-based training strategies to minimise the impact of lockdown restrictions.
