With our project we intend to help the families to be more active and inform the general public of the importance of the physical exercise. Regular physical activity has significant benefits for health. Can improve quality of life, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease diabetes and osteoporosis, help control weight, and promote mental well-being. The World Health Organization developed the “Global Recommendations on Physical Activity for Health” and organized by age group. Depending on their age, the prescribed physical activity is different. For children and young people aged between 5 and 17 years old should accumulate at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity daily. Most of the daily physical activity should be aerobic but at least 3 times per week activities should be incorporated strengthen muscle and bones. For this age group activities can be performed as part of playing games, running, turning, jumping, transportation, chores recreation, physical education or planned exercise. In adults aged between 18 and 64 years old should do at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity or an equivalent combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity. Muscle-strengthening activities should be done involving major muscle groups on 2 or more days a week. The physical activities includes walking, dancing, gardening, hiking, swimming, cycling, household chores, play, games, sports or planned exercise. Older adults aged 64 years and above have recommendations similar to adults. However should perform physical activity to enhance balance and prevent falls on 3 or more days per week and muscle-strengthening activities, involving major muscle groups, should be done on 2 or more days a week. Beyond sports or planned exercise, physical activity includes activities in leisure time walking, cycling, swimming or household chores Inactive people or people cannot do the recommended amounts of physical activity due to health conditions, they should be as physically active as their abilities and conditions allow and start with small amounts of physical activity and gradually increase duration, frequency and intensity over time and can be done in context of daily, family, school or community activities.
