Abstract

The benefits of physical activity in reducing the risk of non-communicable diseases are well documented.1,2 Physical inactivity contributes to 6–10% of the burden of coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancers.1,3 Physical activity helps reduce waist circumference, blood pressure and cholesterol,2,4 and may play a key role in the prevention and management of poor mental health.5 Recent evidence demonstrates that regular physical activity is particularly important for healthy ageing.6–8
