Car insurer reveals exercises to stay healthy at the wheel

Diamond Car Insurance is to publish a list of exercises which are aimed at helping motorists stay healthy while they are at the wheel.

Research conducted by the company, which specialises in womens car insurance, found that 84 per cent of drivers in the UK spend up to 80 minutes a day commuting to and from work .

With this in mind, Diamond has teamed up with Dr Karianne Wasley Backx, an exercise and sport physiologist from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff and come up with some simple exercises that are suitable for people stuck in traffic. The exercises include moving shoulders and stretching arms.

Sian Lewis, managing director of Diamond Car Insurance, said: “Sedentary lifestyles are doing nothing for our physical fitness . These exercises are easy to do while you are at a standstill for any length of time and are great for easing stress too.”
