Following this research, we will develop a new strategy to support physical activity across Camden.

Being physically active is one of the best things you can do to help improve your health. Regular exercise gives a huge boost to your self-esteem, mood, sleep quality, energy levels and can help you maintain a healthy weight.

Camden residents should try to be active every day and aim to achieve at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity every week through a variety of activities, such as walking, dancing, taking the stairs, carrying shopping, playing sports and more.

Research has shown that regular exercise can reduce your risk of major illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes.
