Physical activity levels among the UK population are low (DH, 2000). The benefits of a physically active lifestyle in health promotion and disease prevention are well-documented (DH, 2004b; Pate et al., 1995) but the more sedentary nature of work, alongside increasing use of the car when compared with methods of active transport suggests a decline in physical activity. The UK workforce tends to spend more hours at work than most other EU countries and have less paid leave/annum (The Work Foundation, 2005). Although, the workplace setting affords great potential as a setting for promoting physical activity, the UK has been slow to respond to these opportunities
