Dr Michael McBride

Chief Medical Officer, Northern Ireland

Being physically active is a vital part of maintaining and promoting good personal health. The existing UK-wide Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week for adults, but any amount of physical activity is better than none at all.

It is important that we can all avail of opportunities to be physically active whether it be through team sports, active travel to and from school or work, or even recreational walking or cycling.

Having a goal like 5x50 to work towards is a great way to challenge yourself to do just that bit more to benefit your own health and wellbeing.

About 5x50

5x50 Challenge started with a vision to make people who are inactive become more active. Challengers become part of something that inspires, motivates, encourages you to live a healthier lifestyle. 5x50 Challenges are open to all. Individuals or groups regardless of age, health condition/ disability or fitness level can take part.
