Exercise Right Week is an annual campaign run by Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA). We want to not only encourage Australians to be more active, but to help people understand where to find the right advice when it comes to exercise.
This year’s theme is “Active Ageing”, and we’re encouraging everyone to “Move More, Age Better”. Being physically active and staying fit and healthy will help you to get the most out of life, whatever your age.
Despite these benefits of regular exercise, only 17.2% of those aged over 65 are meeting the physical activity guidelines.
