Increasing the activity in your day
Being physically active and limiting your sedentary behaviour is essential for health and well-being. Research has shown that just 30 minutes of moderate activity a day has many health benefits.
If you currently do no physical activity, start by doing some, and gradually build up to the recommended amount. If you’d like to learn the right technique and exercise selection contact our health professionals to book an initial consultation to help. Whether it is training at home by yourself or doing a local boot camp, any physical activity is better than doing none.
This approach has been shown to be more effective than taking medication and has a long-term positive effect on your health.
