Multisports (and multi-laughs!)

Today I found some interesting guidelines on how much physical activity adults should undertake. Basically you should have 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most days of the week. According to the Department of Health and Aging there are four steps to help enhance your health

Physical Activity Guidelines for Adults

Step 1 – Think of movement as an opportunity, not an inconvenience
Where any form of movement of the body is seen as an opportunity for improving health, not as a time-wasting inconvenience.
Step 2- Be active every day in as many ways as you can
Make a habit of walking or cycling instead of using the car, or do things yourself instead of using labour-saving machines.
Step 3 – Put together at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, preferably all, day.
You can accumulate your 30 minutes (or more) throughout the day by combining a few shorter sessions of activity of around 10 to 15 minutes each.
Step 4 – If you can, also enjoy some regular, vigorous activity for extra health and fitness
This step does not replace Steps 1-3. Rather it adds an extra level for those who are able, and wish, to achieve greater health and fitness benefits.

If you are looking for a fun way to do some exercise look no further than playing multisports at the Bathurst Indoor Sports Stadium. Each week you play a new sport which can include netball, basketball, soccer, handball, volleyball or even touch football. The best aspect is that anyone of any fitness level (trust me on that) can play!
