The problem

More than 50% of Australians miss out on the exercise they need. Their heart health could be at risk.

When you get active more often, you are less likely to have a heart attack or to develop heart disease. Regular physical activity helps to control other heart health risks, like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and 
being overweight.
