Benefits of Physical Activity

Malaysia has the highest obesity rates in Southeast Asia, due to our sedentary lifestyles and undesirable eating habits. More than one in four grown-ups do not lead an active lifestyle to reduce the risk of noncommunicable diseases like heart diseases, diabetes and cancer.

A minimum of 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity; such as walking, swimming & cycling daily or 5 times a week helps to:

Reduce the risk of a heart attack, diabetes & cancer.

Manage weight better: stronger bones, lower risk of developing osteoporosis.

Faster recovery from illness.

Lower risk of high blood pressure & cholesterol level.

Improve mental wellbeing; feel better – with more energy, a better mood, more relaxed and better sleep.

Increase productivity at work.

Remember to consult with your doctor before starting a new work-out program, especially if you have any concerns about: your wellness; if you have not exercised for a period of time; if you have constant health problems, such as heart disease, hypertension, diabetes or joint pain.
