You don't have to be sporty to be fit!
Your own fitness level should meet the needs of your daily life. You should be able to climb the stairs, take a brisk walk and perform other daily activities without getting breathless or tired.
Regular structured physical activity will help you to:
- Strengthen your heart
- Improve your circulation
- Lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Control your weight
- Decrease your risk of developing or help with the management of chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some cancers
- Reduce stress and make you feel better about yourself
