The Secret to Longevity…

(Is simpler than you may think)

Yeah, we know, you’ve heard this before! But bear with us; the miracle cure is not some fancy Pharma-farce, it’s been with us for years… remember when your doctor told you to “do more exercise”? Well, that’s about it.

According to the World Health Organisation’s 2009 study, Physical Inactivity is the 4th most common cause of death, what’s more, being active can help prevent 5 of the remaining top 6 causes.


Physical Facts about Activity:


  • Reduces the risks of developing high blood pressure.
  • Reduces your risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • Reduces the chance of coronary heart disease.
  • Reduces anxiety and depression.
  • Reduces risk of certain cancers.
  • Significantly reduces the risk of disease in overweight or obese people.
  • In older people, it will reduce their risk of falling and increase their performance of daily activity.

As many wise people have said:
“Don’t just stand there, DO SOMETHING!
