4 – How much do you spend on fitness? Seven people reveal their fitness budget here.
5 – Move more. 80% of Britons work in jobs that require little or no physical activity at all. Making time to stand, to move; this is not an exercise prescription, this is us simply saying walk, run, stretch, dance. Get up and make coffee. Anything! Just get out of your seat and get your muscles working. Poor posture is not necessarily the issue, but the lack of movement is.
