Exercise is Medicine Australia provides you with some basic tools to start an exercise program! Guidelines are also provided for healthcare professionals to start counselling patients about their physical activity levels, and to help establish what kind of exercise they should begin with.
Consider working with a local accredited exercise physiologist to help you safely achieve your goals.
Starting an exercise program can sound like a daunting task but remember that your main goal is to boost your health by meeting the basic physical activity recommendations.
Australia’s physical activity and sedentary behaviour guidelines outline how much physical activity you should do, the importance of reducing the time you spend sitting or lying down, and how much sleep children and young people should get. Needs vary depending on your age.
The EIM initiative aims to make physical activity and exercise a standard part of a
disease prevention and treatment medical paradigm in Australia.
