The National Physical Activity Guidelines recommend at least 30 minutes of moderately intense activity on 5 or more days a week for adults. The 30 minutes can be accumulated in bouts of 10 minutes or more over the course of a day. Being active confers significant health and related benefits and participation in sport and active leisure plays an increasingly important role in adult physical activity levels worldwide . The benefits from activity can be gained at any age. The English Longitudinal Study of Ageing tracked participants whose average age was over 65 for 8 years.
