These data highlight the importance of encouraging daily activity, even at work and at home, for the formation of a healthy lifestyle,
– the scientists emphasize.

The data indicate that more than one in four adults in the world does not follow the recommended level of physical activity.

 This study will inspire you to never use an elevator again.

Dr Sophie Paddock from the University of East Anglia says: “If you have a choice between taking the stairs or using the lift, choose the stairs as it will help your heart.”

Even short bursts of physical activity have positive health effects, and short stair climbs should become an achievable goal that can be integrated into your daily routine.

Based on these results, we encourage people to incorporate stair climbing into their daily routine. Our research showed that the more stair climbs, the greater the benefit – but this needs to be confirmed. So, whether at work, at home, or elsewhere, take the stairs
– scientists urge.

The results of the study were presented at the European Society of Cardiology Conference on Preventive Cardiology in Athens, Greece.


Previous research has shown that simple exercises like climbing stairs can provide “significant” benefits for the heart and muscles.

Researchers at McMaster University in Canadians found that climbing stairs was beneficial regardless of whether a person walked or ran.

The results of some studies suggest that the “stair test” is a simple way to check heart health.

Experts say you should consult a doctor if climbing four flights of stairs takes more than a minute and a half.
