How long do YOU spend sitting down every day?

Being active is really good for your body and mind – and the good news is there are lots of easy ways that you can become more active. Physical activity is not all about sport, anything that gets you moving is really beneficial for your health and our move more sessions are scaleable to any level of ability.

Whatever your age, size or physical condition you will benefit from being more active and although the NHS recommends 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week, even a little effort can make a big difference. Some examples of moderate physical activity include brisk walking or attending an exercise group, both of which you can do for free with One You Leeds!

Physical activity can help you to reduce your risk of developing conditions such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, stroke, certain cancers and musculoskeletal conditions. In addition to this, physical activity can really improve your mental wellbeing, help you sleep better, and even relive stress.
