Portuguese exercising less

The number of Portuguese people over the age of 15 who “rarely” do any exercise increased from 66 percent in 2009 to 74 percent in 2017.

These figures are contained in the annual report on the physical activity promotion programme. According to the study, only 5 percent of Portuguese said they regularly exercise, with most of them saying they cycle, dance or spend time in the garden. The European average is almost three times higher at 14 percent.
