Physical Activity refers to all energy expended by movement. The major contributors are everyday activities that involve moving the body around, such as walking, cycling, climbing stairs, housework, and shopping, with much of it occurring as an incidental part of our routines. Exercise, on the other hand, is a planned and purposeful attempt, at least in part, to improve fitness and health. Exercise might include activities such as brisk walking, cycling, aerobic dance, and perhaps active hobbies such as gardening and competitive sports.
