Rotherham Get Active

We want you to be active

It is well documented that being physically active and taking part in exercise is essential for our wellbeing and reduces the risk of premature death associated with chronic diseases.

Being physically active has a positive impact upon both physical and mental health and can be used as both a preventative measure for the onset of chronic disease and as part of a treatment plan.

How much activity should you do?

The Department of Health recommends that healthy adults should take part in 5 x 30 minutes of moderate physical activity per week.
