Exercise in daily life

Getting active doesn't mean you have to go to the gym or play football!

When they hear the word “exercise,” many people will immediately picture a gym, some form of team sports, or perhaps even school PE lessons! 

While the gym or playing sports are both very good options, the truth is that they may not be the best for everyone. For some they may be intimidating, too expensive, unsuitable, unavailable locally or simply no fun.

The good news is there are many more options, some of which you might be doing already and not even consider “exercise.” See below for a few ideas.
