This week, 23rd – 30th September 2017, we celebrate European Week of Sport and Physical Activity 2017. The aim of this initiative is to promote sport and physical activity throughout Europe during this week and beyond. The campaign for this year is #BeActive, and this promotion aims to encourage everyone, no matter what age, fitness level or background, to move and exercise more. Check out the Sport Ireland Facebook Page for events happening nationally this week.
In keeping with the theme, the following infographic produced by the World Confederation for Physical Therapy provides some interesting statistics on the health benefits of regular exercise, plus the weekly recommended levels of physical activity.
