What is 5x60?
5x60 is about getting active for at least 60 minutes, 5 times a week although it doesn’t have to be all at once! A 10 minute walk to school, a 20 minute kick about, taking part in the daily mile and a half-hour bike ride will do.
But before you ask, no it doesn’t include time on your x-box or watching footie!
5x60 is all about having fun and trying out new things, like Dance (street, hip hop, contemporary), Basketball, Trampolining, Dodgeball, Football, Climbing… and you can do it in school. Before the bell goes first thing, when you’ve gobbled your sarnies, or when the others have sloped off home, any time! It’s all about you. You choose your activities, and your school’s Active Young People's Officer will do their bit to make it happen.
