Reducing Physical Inactivity in AdultsUnderstanding the real challenge of becoming physically active requires a fundamental understanding of inactive behaviours (sedentary). This article From UK Coaching aims to provide you with some knowledge around why people have inactive behaviours, what counts as being active and what a coach can do to help.

In partnership with Public Health England, UK Coaching has created a 'Reducing Physical Inactivity in Adults' infographic, (below) which features practical, easy to digest tips on being active.

NHS’ Active 10 App is a great way for people to ensure they are getting at least 10 minutes of walking activity every day. It shows how much brisk walking you’re doing and how you can do more. It's easy to use and helps you set your goals for the day. Encourage your participants to download the app and ask your coaches to use it in their sessions.
