Research into the costs of physical inactivity, showed that NHS providers in England spent more than £900m in 2009/10 in treating people with diseases that could be prevented if more people were physically active.

Physical activity can reduce the risk of all-cause mortality by 30%, yet over a quarter (26.8%) of the Greater Manchester population is inactive and nearly 4/10 (39.4%) are not active enough to benefit their health (i.e. not reaching Chief Medical Officer guidelines of 150 minutes a week).
