Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure/Cholesterol, Heart Disease, Obesity.....we all know people who suffer or have suffered with these conditions. If you had the opportunity to spend just 30mins a day doing something to reduce the risk of you developing these conditions, would you do it? Being active for 30mins per day, 5 days/week does just this - it can reduce the risk of you developing these conditions or if you have a condition already, by becoming more active you can make it more manageable.
