The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that adults should all be doing at least 150 minutes a week of “moderate-intensity” physical activity. How many of us actually achieve this target? We visited a park in the heart of Port of Spain, Trinidad, and talked to a range of men and women.
Most interviewees (in our totally unscientific, on-the-fly poll) said they do some form of exercise, mostly walking, though few actually hit the WHO recommendation. There are several who are really committed, though, such as the man who swims, cycles and walks. A good number do no exercise at all, citing a variety of reasons: being too busy, unwell or simply not feeling like it. Where are you on this spectrum?
Here’s a short video of some of the responses we found. The man with the microphone is Denith McNicolls.
