We are all living longer, but sadly not healthier. As we get older, we are less physically active and the latest research shows that too much sitting can negate the benefits of regular exercise. This interactive session includes talks on why being sedentary is bad for your health, and will offer tips on easy ways to increase your activity.

The event ends with 25 minutes of ‘Chair Based Exercise’ including sitting and standing movements, a practical way to increase flexibility and reduce sedentariness.

This event is presented by University of Birmingham Sport and the MRC-ARUK Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing Research
