How much Exercise do I need?

We all know that we need to exercise throughout the week to stay fit and healthy. But do we know how much exercise is required?

According the the NHS Live Well Campaign we should all participate in physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days of the week. Physical activity can be described as anything that gets you out of breath, so could be anything from running to stair climbing. Children should get at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day.

If you think that 30 minutes is too much for you to complete you should remember that this does not need to be done all at once. Split the physical activity into three 10 minute bursts – you will be amazed at how good it makes you feel.

So, whether you are walking to work each day or are exercising on a treadmill each evening you will be on the way to a fitter, more healthy body. Keep up the good work!
