Almost 300,000 more people are doing 150 minutes of activity a week according to new figures released today from our Active Lives Adult Survey May 2017/18.

Based on a sample of almost 185,000 respondents to our survey, 297,400 more people in England, aged 16 and above, are meeting the Chief Medical Officer's guidelines of doing at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a week - relative to the previous 12 months. The report also shows that inactivity levels - people doing fewer than 30 minutes of activity a week - dropped by 116,000 over the same time period.
