Why is physical activity so important for me?

Regular exercise lowers your blood glucose levels, reduces risk of cardiovascular disease, contributes to weight loss and improves wellbeing.

A good Aktivo Score® can help you meet recommendations for physical activity and sleep. Reduce your risk of developing diabetes by exercising regularly for at least 30 minutes per day, sitting less than 8 hours per day and sleeping between 7 to 9 hours per day. Sit less and stand more throughout the day, and weight train twice a week. If you have any concerns about your levels of exercise, please speak to your doctor.
