Active Campus Walking Trails

The Centre for Sports and Exercise has designed The Active Campus Walking Trails to provide people an alternative way on campus to become healthier and more active. For the sedentary lifestyle of the staff and students at the University of Hong Kong, getting healthier during their stay at campus isn't as difficult as one may think. Any increase in activity will benefit your health and need not be strenuous to be beneficial. Physical activity equivalent to 150 Calories per day is already associated with health gains.

For those who don't have the time to participate in sports or don't like to visit a fitness center, walking is one of the best and easiest forms of physical activity. Brisk walking is an ideal way to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. It can also reduce your risk of stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis and obesity. Studies reveal that 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day is beneficial to health. You do not need to do it in one single session, it can also be divided it into three 10-minute sessions if necessary.
