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.

Any amount of exercise is beneficial. Aim for 150 minutes of aerobic exercise per week and weight training twice a week. Sit less and stand more throughout the day.

A good Aktivo Score® can help you meet these recommendations and reduce your risk of developing diabetes. If you have any concerns about your levels of exercise, please speak to your doctor.
