Active 10Save this item
Active 10 is part of the One You programme, and encourages people to take brisk 10-minute walks every day. Brisk walking is a great way to start building up to a more active lifestyle, and with Active 10 you can track your progress with a free app.
Brisk walking is simply walking quicker than usual at a pace that gets your heart pumping. Every minute of activity counts, but aim for at least 10 minutes a day. The Active 10 app is a great way to help you monitor and gradually increase your brisk walking levels over time.
You could walk part of your journey home, pop to the shops on foot, or just get some fresh air. No gym memberships and no brightly coloured Lycra needed!
Kent Sport have devised some Active 10 walking routes in various towns and city centres across the county. Why not take a few minutes out and try one next time you pop into town for some shopping?
In order to help you start moving more in your everyday life, Everyday Active has created the "three-a-day" approach to becoming more active. If you can start moving more just three times a day, for a couple of minutes at a time, this can start to form the habit of a more active lifestyle. Just like your five-a-day of fruit of vegetables, this can be your three-a-day of moving more.
