Move More

If you're not as active as you should be you are putting your health and quality of life at risk.

To stay healthy or to improve health, you need to do two types of physical activity each week: aerobic and strength exercises.

Where to start?

If you're new to being active, why not try walking and building this into your daily routine, so you'll be more likely to keep it up. Walk briskly so your heart beats faster and your lungs work harder.

Why not join a walking group? It's a great way to make new friends and stay motivated.
