KEY REASONS TO BE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE

Physically active people have 20–30% reduced risk of premature death and up to 50% reduced risk of major chronic disease such as coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer.

Six out of ten men and seven out of ten women are not active
enough to benefit their health.  In the last 25 years, the distance people walk or cycle has fallen by a quarter.

Three out of ten boys and four out of ten girls are not meeting the
recommended hour a day of physical activity for children.  Activity
in childhood helps healthy growth and development.

Physical activity decreases with age: seven out of ten men and
eight out of ten women aged 75 years and above are inactive. Regular activity helps maintain mobility and independent living.
