Incorporate moderate activity as part of daily routine, expert says
Boosting oxygen levels through exercise is one of the most effective ways for maintaining fitness and a healthy weight.
Running and cycling are popular ways of achieving this, yet sometimes the office climate can hinder Britons from challenging themselves physically.
Bridget Benelam is a senior nutritionist at the British Nutrition Foundation and she believes incorporating some moderate activity on a daily basis can help overcome this problem.
She said: "If you've got an office job think about how you can get up and move around at least once an hour and not spend hours sitting.
"When it comes to your evenings and weekends, think about how you can spend some time not being sat in front of the TV or computer so you can get out and spend some time being active."
The NHS advises Britons aged 19 to 64 to undertake at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week or 75 minutes of vigorous activity.
This should be complemented by twice-weekly sessions involving strength training across all the major muscle groups.
