How much exercise do you really need?

Getting the right amount of exercise – whatever your age – is a mix of getting the right quality and the right quantity.
 

Adult women should do at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity (or a combination of the two) every week to reduce the risk of high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.
 

To break this down into manageable amounts, aim to do 30 minutes of exercise a day, or 15 minutes twice a day!
 

Children aged 5-17 should do at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
