The UKK Institute’s Physical Activity Pie is a visual guideline for health-enhancing physical activity for adults aged 18—64.

The Physical Activity Pie encapsulates the following recommendation
• Health is promoted by moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity of at least 10 minutes that accumulates throughout a week to a total of at least 2 h 30 min per week.
• An alternative is more-demanding, vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity with an accumulation of at least 1 h 15 min per week.
• In addition, everyone needs muscle-strengthening and balance training at least twice a week.
