I run a community called StepJockey (it's here on HealthUnlocked healthunlocked.com/stepjock... We're trying to get people a bit more active - mainly at work - by encouraging people to climb the stairs.
If you've got a bit of raised cardiovascular risk found on your NHS Health Check, you might find that climbing the stairs is a great way to start getting in some extra exercise. There are many health benefits from climbing stairs, including:
-Seven minutes stair climbing a day can halve the risk of heart attack over 10 years
-Climb stairs burns more calories than jogging because you're working against gravity
-Coming down stairs gives your bones a gentle jolt which can help ward off osteoporosis
I hope that gives you the impetus to get you climbing - it really is a great way to start to get fit - no need for Lycra or sweat!
