French women trailing behind their European neighbors when it comes to sport and exercise
Date:3/7/2013

This release is available in French.

Geneva, Switzerland (07 March, 2013) French women are less likely to spend any time on physical activities including sport, exercise or even household chores, compared to women in Germany, Denmark, Sweden and the UK, according to a new survey. The multi-national survey on sport and exercise habits also reveals that more than 50 per cent of French women did not play competitive sport or spend any time on intensive workouts such as running or cycling in a given week. As the French women's football team prepare for this summer's UEFA Women's EURO in Sweden, the countdown to the championships offers an opportunity for women to kick start heart-healthy physical activities and set themselves the goal of being more active.

"Playing sport can be an important part of an active, healthy lifestyle. In combination with everyday physical activities, such as gardening or even doing household chores, sport can help reduce the risk of heart disease, the number one killer of women, responsible for the deaths of 1 in 3 women worldwide. According to the World Health Organization's Global Recommendations on Physical activity for Health, adults aged between 18-64 years should do 150 minutes of moderate physical activity (gardening, dancing or brisk walking) or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity (playing sport, running or aerobics) per week. Ahead of International Women's Day, we encourage women to take care of their heart health to avoid paying the penalty of an inactive lifestyle", said Johanna Ralston, CEO of the World Heart Federation.

The survey reveals that French women are not only indifferent to sport and exercise, but 42 per cent of women do not do enough physical activity per week, putting themselves at risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), which includes heart disease and stroke. More than 2 million women
