Do you do 150 minutes of exercise a week?

A recent study into physical activity in adults found that 26% of females and 19% of males were ‘physically inactive’.

Physical inactivity is described as doing less than 30 minutes of exercise a week and is a contributing risk factor for multiple causes of death, chronic morbidity and disability.
