How much neuromotor exercise should I do if I have a sedentary lifestyle?

Neuromotor exercise is important to minimize the effects of a sedentary lifestyle.
  • Neuromotor exercise (sometimes also called “functional fitness training”) is recommended for two or three days per week.
  • Exercises should involve motor skills (balance, agility, coordination and gait), proprioceptive exercise training and multifaceted activities (tai chi and yoga) to improve physical function and prevent falls, particularly in older adults.
  • 20 to 30 minutes per day is appropriate for neuromotor exercise.
