Physical Activity


Physical activity is widely celebrated for its health benefits, and is a key strategy in improving the wellbeing of New Zealanders.  In addition to increasing physical fitness, physical activity is associated with a reduced risk of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, depression, and a number of cancers.

Toi Te Ora - Public Health Service supports strategies and initiatives that enhance active transport opportunities for our communities.  Commuting by using active transport is a way of incorporating physical activity into everyday life.  Active transport includes walking, cycling, using a scooter, skateboard, rollerskates or rollerblades.  For more information, read our position statement on Active Transport.
