Physical Activity

221

We all need regular physical activity for good physical and mental health, no matter what age we are. It is recommended that adults include at least 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, if not all days of the week. Kids need to do a minimum of 60 minutes of physical activity every day. But remember, more is better – even up to several hours! This can be built up throughout the day with a combination of moderate to vigorous activities.

For more information on the National Activity Guidleines check out the Related link.

Getting Started

Heart Foundation Walking Groups

Heart Foundation Walking is a fun, social and easy way to be active and best of all it's FREE! It is Australia’s largest network of community-based walking groups with over 19,000 active members. Groups are led by volunteer Walk Organisers and we have new groups starting every week.

Joining or starting a walking group in your area is a great way to get active and meet new people.
You can join a local group by contacting the walk organiser. If no groups are available, you might like to start your own walking group.
