Exercise and Health: Active Lifestyle, Better Life

  • Overview

There is little doubt that we all want to live a healthy and fulfilling life well into our later years.

The Exercise and Health: Active Lifestyle, Better Life conference is the ideal opportunity to explore the impact of exercise and physical activity on health and longevity.
Exercise contributes enormously to a healthy lifestyle and the benefits to living longer and reducing the risk of developing serious health conditions are well documented. However, despite the evidence, it is estimated that 50% of women and a third of men in England are compromising their health and life expectancy through a lack of physical activity, at a cost of £7.4bn per annum. Worryingly only 25% of girls and 32% of boys are meeting the recommended levels of exercise to maintain a healthy life.

With an increasingly aged population a continuing trend of inactivity, with its accompanying detrimental health consequences, will put an unsustainable pressure on the UK’s health and social care systems. Encouraging people to take up exercise as a public health prevention initiative may be key to a fitter and healthier nation.

At Exercise and Health: Active Lifestyle, Better Life we will examine the impacts of physical activity across the health spectrum including analysis on long term conditions, well-being, mental health and dementia. In light of new conflicting research there will be the opportunity to discuss and debate the efficacy of exercise on obesity. Examples of best practice and case studies will be shared to allow delegates to gain valuable knowledge in how physical activity can be utilised to create healthier and longer lives.
