Physical Activity Guidelines for Young People

Physical Activity Guidelines for Young People is a NHS Choices information page. To stay healthy or to improve health, young people need to do three types of physical activity each week: aerobic, muscle-strengthening and bone-strengthening activity.

The amount of physical activity you need to do each week is determined by your age.

Children and young people should minimise the amount of time they spend:

  • sitting watching TV;
  • playing computer games; and
  • travelling by car when they could walk or cycle instead.

For more information please visit the website.
