The average adult needs to do at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day, on five or more days a week to gain health benefits. However, many people should actually do more.
Physical Activity for Adults
Increasing your physical activity levels is becoming more important as modern life has become more sedentary.
At work and at home modern advances in technology and transport have meant that we move around a lot less during the day. Lifestyles have changed dramatically in the last 20 years. This has generally not been helpful to our health and well-being.
Can you build more physical activity into your everyday life? If so your health could benefit as well as your body physically, your state of mind and general wellbeing. Most importantly it can be great fun and an opportunity to meet new people. Find your ideal activity and be more active, more often!
Solihull Girls Can is a project aiming to increase women’s participation in sport and physical activity. Fear of judgment is stopping many women from taking part in physical activity.
Looking for the right place to get active, whatever your activity, there is a sports centre, leisure facility, park or open space or gym in Solihull to get you up and running.
Solihull Active organises and supports a variety of events for its customers.
Our volunteers are at the heart of sport and physical activity in Solihull; they play a pivotal role in encouraging and supporting people to get involved, and stay involved, at all levels.
Being physically active is great for your health and wellbeing, and if done regularly will benefit you physically and mentally. It is also a great opportunity to have fun, meet new people and make new friends.
