Physical Activity

Find the physical activity which suits you to reduce the risk of developing a number of diseases and improve your general wellbeing.

For children and young people aged 5-18

To maintain a basic level of health you need to do at least 60 minutes (1 hour) of physical activity every day, which should range between moderate-intensity activity, such as cycling and playground activities and vigorous-intensity activity, such as fast running and tennis. On three days a week, these activities should involve muscle-strengthening activities, such as push-ups, and bone-strengthening activities, such as running.

Healthy adults (19 – 64 years)

To stay healthy, or to improve health adults need to do two types of physical activity each week including aerobic and muscle-strengthening activity. You should aim to achieve at least 150 minutes of exercise per week. One way to do this is by doing 30 minutes exercise on 5 days a week. For other ways to accomplish this and to find out more see the NHS physical activity guidelines for adults.
