Now more that ever health has risen to the top of the list of priorities for all of us! And along with health comes regular exercise, the essential condition for physical and mental well-being. During the 2020s we have seen an unprecedented acceleration in the awareness of how much physical activity impacts on people's wellness.
The new WHO guidelines
The guidelines for adults from 16 years old and over include strong evidence-based suggestions for recommended weekly volumes of aerobic and muscle-strengthening physical activity to improve one's health and well-being. Many of the benefits of physical activity are obtained within average weekly volumes of 150-300 minutes of moderate intensity or 75-150 of vigorous intensity. The recommended weekly range of aerobic activity marks a difference from the 2010 WHO recommendations, which specified only minimum weekly thresholds.
Moderate intensity is defined as activity that is strenuous enough to burn three to six times more energy per minute than in the rest time, such as fast paced walking. Vigorous activity (cycling, running...) burns more than six times the calories spent when resting.
These guidelines will be used to inform national health policies in line with the WHO Global Action Plan on Physical Activity 2018-2030 and to strengthen supervisory systems that monitor progress towards national and global goals. Technogym strongly supports these ideas and, thanks to its wide ranges of products, is able to help people of all age groups perform aerobic and anaerobic activity. Around the world, 50 million people train with Technogym every day in 80,000 wellness centres and 400,000 private homes.
