BUSINESS MINDS MATCH SPORTING STARS

It advises that all adults in Wales should undertake 30 minutes of moderate exercise five times a week in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Chairman of the Sports Council for Wales, Philip Carling, believes attributes like good organisation and a positive attitude can help working adults in Wales maintain their regular daily activity quota.

"Physical activity is an avenue towards better health and fitness for the rest of your life," he said.

"It will develop skills which can be utilised throughout your entire working career, whether it is building communication or teamwork skills through a five-aside football match after work, or tuning your social skills on a group jog with other colleagues.

"Likewise, the everyday attributes which we learn at work are transferable to physical activity and sport, even if it’s simply organising and leading a lunch-time walk.

"Business leaders in Wales share many of the skills which make them perfectly suited to physical activity because the role generally requires organised, driven, and socially fluent people who are practised at achieving targets, no matter how big or small they may seem."
