Why is physical activity so important for me?
Physical activity has been shown to lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Regular exercise lowers your blood glucose levels, reduces risk of cardiovascular disease, contributes to weight loss and improves wellbeing.
It is recommended to perform at least 150 min/week of moderate-to-vigorous intensity aerobic exercise spread over at least 3 days a week. In addition to aerobic exercise, weight training at least twice per week is also recommended.
Keeping a good Aktivo Score® will help you meet these recommendations and reduce your risk of developing diabetes.
Please consult your doctor prior to increasing your levels of exercise.
