Exercise guidelines

Regular and consistent movement is important for health for all ages and abilities. Exercise can be anything that gets us moving and our heart rates up. Activities include gardening, walking, dancing, and structured classes like yoga or gym sessions. We should also try to limit the time we spend sitting down.

The NHS recommends children and young people do at least an hour of exercise daily.

Adults aged 19 to 65+ should do at least 150 minutes of moderate activity, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity a week. You should spread your exercise across the week. Those aged over 65 should try to include strength, balance and flexibility exercises.
