Step 1: Find the type of exercise that suits you

In order to find an exercise that you'll enjoy and keep you moving, take our questionnaire to find out whether you prefer something laid back, just for the weekend, or feel that variety is the spice of your exercising life.
  • Question 1
    A new gym in your neighbourhood is offering a free trial. Do you sign up?
    A) No, I get nervous with all that equipment and commitment.
    B) It depends if I could leave work early.
    C) Yes, why not? It’s worth a try.
    Pick One
  • Question 2
    Which one of these would best describe your exercise regime?
    A) I don’t have one.
    B) I used to do sports every day at school, but now I try to go for weekend workouts.
    C) I occasionally go for a run or a swim and enjoy myself when I make the effort.

  • Question 3
    You’re late and have to sprint for the bus. How do you feel afterwards?
    A) Exhausted! Tomorrow I’ll make sure I set my alarm earlier.
    B) I was quite proud to reach the bus stop but was struggling to catch my breath!
    C) I couldn’t manage a sprint – fast walking is as quick as I get!

    It’s time for a medical check-up. How do you feel?
