Survival throughout human history owes itself, among other things, to the ability to move; to perform physical activity appropriate to each age, gender and certain diseases.

The World Health Organisation created a slogan that is still in use, “Move for health“.

Physical activity is considered as a protective factor and is clearly cross-cutting in nature, since it can be found in the different programmes on health promotion and disease prevention (Viure en Salut 79)

Physical activity should be kept up throughout your life cycle and become part of your daily habits, such as healthy eating, getting enough sleep, or any other action that can help the body to function properly.
