Physical health

There are several health and lifestyle benefits to maintaining a regular exercise routine. Such as lowering your risk of heart disease and giving you more energy.

Exercise machines

It is recommended that children and teenagers get at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day.

It doesn't have to be all in one go; it can be chunks of about 15 to 20 minutes throughout the day.

Start with:

  • 20 minutes walk to the shops
  • ride your bike to the park instead of getting the bus
  • finish the day with a game of Frisbee

The exercise should be of moderate intensity; for example, simply walking or cycling, swimming, dancing, team sports, aerobics or contact sports.
