It's common knowledge that low activity levels contribute to obesity. Experts warn that the number of fatalities due to obesity may soon, for the first time exceed those caused by smoking. Being overweight leaves people at high risk of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and osteoarthritis.
71% of boys and 81% of girls do not meet the minimum level of physical activity per day.
Over 30% of primary school children are obese, with two-thirds showing early signs of heart disease.
Evidence shows that the benefits of regular physical activity can also help young people to build confidence, develop social skills, support mental wellbeing and improve academic performance.
