Course Introduction

More than a quarter of adults (1.4 billion people) throughout the world are not physically active enough to stay healthy. Not moving enough during the day drastically increases your chances of high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, obesity or diabetes. And all of these conditions are risk factors of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs).

This Physical Activity Online Training course takes on average 25 minutes to complete.

Course Content

The EssentialSkillz Physical Activity course describes what activities are considered moderate and vigorous-intensity physical activities, and how long you should engage in these activities each week. Muscle-strengthening and flexibility activities are also important parts of a healthy lifestyle. The course explains why these activities are important for your health and wellbeing, as well as how much you should do.

Although physical activity has many benefits to us physically, mentally and emotionally, people use many excuses to avoid being more physically active. They might say they are too busy with work, home life or other commitments. Or maybe they aren’t physically active enough because they don’t know how to be active, don’t feel like it or think they are too unfit. But becoming more physically active does not have to be difficult.

The course provides advice on ways you can be more physically active during the workday and also in your personal time, and how you can set SMART goals to plan and achieve a healthier approach to living.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Physical Activity eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand specific content developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator within your organisation can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.
