Love Activity, Hate Exercise?

Physical inactivity is a major public health problem and something that CSP members  want to tackle head on through a new campaign, ‘Love Activity, Hate Exercise?’ launching to members this May.

Love Activity, Hate Exercise? 1200x675

Only half of the UK adult population does the recommended minimum amount of exercise, (150 mins moderate to vigorous intensity each week) and CSPs new campaign aims to improve this by targeting in particular, those with long-term conditions who often find it most difficult to start and maintain exercise.

Love Activity, Hate Exercise? will support members to get their patients and the wider public more active by acknowledging that often people have a love/hate relationship with physical activity and exercise, and new resources, tips and ideas produced for the campaign will work to give patients the motivation and confidence needed to get physically active.

The campaign launches to the public in July and is based on direct input and insight from members across the profession. This included research with physiotherapists who have specialist expertise in physical activity and behaviour change, to identify the key barriers to getting patients more active, as well as insight from those who have supported past campaigns like W@W! to better understand what works for members.

As health professionals, all physiotherapy staff have an important role to play in promoting physical activity. The physiotherapy workforce sees several million people every year. We aim to help you maximise all of these opportunities to talk about the benefits of physical activity to health and wellbeing so that exercise becomes more accessible.

To be part of the action and get involved in the campaign, register your interest by contacting the CSP at and we’ll send you more information in the spring.
