“You don’t have to go to the gym, wear sportswear or start expensive fitness programmes to get the benefits of an active lifestyle, walking counts too!

“There is a free One You Active 10 app which shows how much brisk walking you are doing and where you can fit ten minute bursts of brisk walking into your day. The app also sets you brisk walking goals and provides hints and tips to keep you going.”
