What is the difference between Physical Activity and Exercise?

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

Hi All,

I oftern get asked the question ‘What is the difference between Physical Activity and Exercise?’

Well here is your answer:-

Physical Activity:- are tasks of daily living that can be used to work the cardiovascular system (Heart and Lungs), for example shopping, walking the dog, etc… these activities generally do not need any specialist equiptment, a special venue and is not structured.

Exercise – is any form of structured activity performed on a regular basis with a specific goal in mind. ┬áSo this would include things like fitness classes, playing sport, having a Personal Training Session etc…
