Barriers To Starting Physical Activity 

We understand that taking up or regularly taking part in physical activity can be difficult at first.  We can all be guilty of finding excuses to avoid physical activity yet it is important for our long-term health and wellbeing.  This session will explore some of the key barriers people have to taking part in physical activity and how to overcome them.

  1. I’m too old to start: Your never too old to start and the health benefits can quickly be seen once you do.
  2. I don’t have time: something is better than nothing and short bursts of activity increasing your heart rate throughout the day soon adds up. One of the keys ways is to look at how you can be active as part of everyday activities.
  3. I don’t like exercise: Sport and fitness classes are not for everyone. Physical activity doesn’t have to involve things you don’t like doing to be effective. Discover the types of activities that you enjoy and make them part of your daily physical activity routine.
  4. I have a chronic condition or disability: Movement is essential for everyone. Whether you use a wheelchair or other assistive device to get around or have mobility challenges due to a chronic condition or a prior injury, there are activities that you can do to challenge your muscles and lungs and improve your health and quality of life. Physical activity can even improve some chronic conditions and prevent others.
