  • Australians of all ages are not doing enough physical activity for optimal health. 
  • Over a third of the total burden of disease experienced by Australians could be prevented by tackling modifiable risk factors such as increasing your level of physical activity.
  • The sedentary nature of our lifestyle can also lead to poorer health outcomes – around 90% of Australian children have 10 hours or more screen time each week.
  • National guidelines recommend Australian adults do 2 ½–5 hours of moderate intensity physical activity, or 1 ¼ to 2 ½ hours of vigorous intensity physical activity each week.
  • It is also recommended that adults do muscle strengthening activities on at least two days per week.
