Children’s Fitness Academy: Diabetes could be prevented by just one minute of exercise a day

I couldn’t believe it when I saw this……according to researchers just one minute of exercise a day could prevent diabetes!

Basically

Scientists at the University of Bath asked volunteers to perform two 20-second cycle sprints on exercise bikes, three times per weeks and after six weeks, researchers in the university’s Department of Health saw a 28% improvement in their insulin function!

It couldn’t be easier – why not play catch and get your child to run as fast as he or she can to get the ball or set out some cones so you sprint to one cone, then walk to the other and visa versa. Exercise can be fun and creative and as the study suggests, you don’t need to spend hours doing it to reap the benefits.

If you would like some more ideas – drop me an email or send me a message – my brain is bursting with them!
