Consultation: What would help people to do more exercise. How can local schemes support it?
The UK's four Chief Medical Officers published updated physical activity guidelines emphasising the importance of building strength and balance for adults.
The guidance states that adults are advised to undertake strength-based exercise at least 2 days a week. This can help delay the natural decline in muscle mass and bone density that starts from around age 50.
As part of the 'Advancing our Health: Prevention in the 2020s' consultation, they'd like to hear your views on what would help people to do more exercise and how local schemes can support.
