Active Luton’s Top Tips! 3 ways get active & stay active

 1. Find an activity that you enjoy & make it part of your routine

Swimming, gym, fitness classes, group or individual sporting activities- whatever gets your blood pumping and body moving! It doesn’t have to be high intensity exercise; in just 60 minutes the average person can burn up to 817 calories (fast swimming) or 572 calories (slow swimming)! Exercising and keeping active should fit into your daily routine. Don’t worry though- that doesn’t mean going to the gym everyday!
