In the UK, the lack of exercise may be responsible for 1 in 6 deaths each year. This means around 90,000 people are dying each year prematurely through a lack of physical activity.
Did you know that lack of exercise could be a bigger threat to your health than smoking and kills more people than obesity?
You probably think these are very alarming statistics, but why are you asking?
The reason is, many of us believe we are getting all the exercise we need, but this is far from the truth. A great many of us are not doing enough exercise to keep ourselves healthy, and this is leaving us open to some serious illnesses including; heart disease, colon cancer, breast cancer and type 2 diabetes.
So what can those of us who are not getting enough exercise do?
The obvious answer is doing more exercise, however, many of us baulk at the idea of exercise. We imagine hours of running marathons, jogging, weight lifting and swimming, but all exercise is not torture, and the NHS promotes the most accessible form of exercise known to humanity; walking.
Yes, one of the many things the NHS prescribes to help people become fit and healthy is walking. They advise people to aim to walk 10,000 steps a day.
The NHS claims that walking 10,000 steps will help people stay healthy and live longer lives, and there is no doubt they do. At DOR-2-DOR have been keeping people fit and saving lives for many years.
