More about MOVEs!

MOVEs are a measure of your daily physical activity. Scientifically, MOVEs are a calculation of activity duration and intensity based on metabolic equivalents (METs). 1 MET is defined as 1kcal/kg/hour, which is roughly equivalent to resting, so the more active you are the more the MOVEs you earn.

To be active you should aim for 750 MOVEs per day. As a guide to daily activity:
LOW ACTIVE: 0-499 MOVEs
MODERATELY ACTIVE: 500-749 MOVEs
ACTIVE: 750-999 MOVEs
VERY ACTIVE: OVER 1000 MOVEs
