Exercise ... made easy

Did you know that walking briskly for just 10 continuous minutes counts as exercise?

It's easier than you think to fit into your day with the Active 10 walking tracker app!

  

10 brisk minutes

Summer is the perfect time to be more active. And a brisk 10 minute walk every day is a great excuse to get outside and improve your health. Each 10 minute burst of exercise is known as an “Active 10”.

Brisk walking is simply walking quicker than usual at a pace that gets your heart pumping. Start with a 10 minute brisk walk a day and then see if you can gradually build up to more.

You could walk part of your journey home, pop to the shops on foot, or get some fresh air in the evening sunshine. No gym memberships, no brightly coloured Lycra. Just 10 minutes and you!

Walk your way to health

A regular 10 minute brisk walk can make you feel better in so many ways. It can boost your energy, clear your head and lift your mood.

It can help people with lower back pain and those at risk of high blood pressure.

It’s also great for your long-term health – it can reduce your risk of serious illnesses like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia and some cancers.
