The Truth About Exercise is a BBC Horizons documentary where reporter Michael Mosley shows us that he wants to get fitter and healthier but can't face hours on the treadmill or trips to the gym, and comes to the conclusion that he may need help.
He uncovers the surprising new research which suggests many of us could benefit from just three minutes of high intensity exercise a week. He discovers the hidden power of simple activities like walking and fidgeting, and finds out why some of us don't respond to exercise at all
Using himself as a guinea pig, Michael uncovers the surprising new research about exercise, that has the power to make us all live longer and healthier lives.
