    Great read
    I would like to add, there is also financial support for those considering an exercise plan.
    Via your GP in the former of an Exercise Prescription, I do believe the minimum obesity BMI requirement is 30.
    Mine covers me for 3 months, just take it to a gym subscribed to the program and you will receive a substantial discount along with a GP trained instructor who will device a plan according to your ability.
    I look forward to further articles, keep up the good work

    I’ve got to 73 without ever having been to a gym or had an exercise plan or taken part in any sport (other than a little badminton and running over 30 years ago). But I do gardening and other physical work, walk for at least an hour each day, usually more, and sit down as little as possible. Either as a result of this, or a healthy diet, active mind and good luck, I think I’m as fit as I need to be, have a BMI of 21 and take no medication. So exercise can take many forms, doesn’t need to cost anything and doesn’t need to be part of a plan. But well done on pulling it all together, explaining the benefits and providing incentives and ideas for the less active to get moving. And don’t forget sex – will that be covered under exercise, interests or practical matters, or will it be a separate topic?!!

      Thanks for the comments Rita. It’s great to hear how you have maintained good health and fitness via your lifestyle. Unfortunately many of us have pretty sedentary jobs and lifestyles, which prompts us to need to take alternative action to counter the time we spend sitting down. Luckily there are so many different types of exercise, so there is something for everyone.

    Great post! https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/541233/Physical_activity_infographic.PDF
    This is a really useful infographic of government exercise advice. Interesting to see that the recommendations are the same for adults over and under 65. But as it says on the NHS website- ‘moderate exercise’ can take many forms…walking, mowing the lawn, dancing etc. Looking forward to your further articles on fitness!

      Thanks for sharing this link Helen – simple, yet good advice. I wonder where this gets posted e.g. doctors surgeries etc., and whether it makes a difference to the target audience.
