Conduction by the American Heart Association, the study has been published in the journal Circulation and states that exercising for even 150 minutes every week reduces the risk of coronary heart disease by 14 percent while 300 minutes of weekly exercise reduces the risk by 20 percent.

"The biggest health benefits we saw were for those who went from doing nothing to those doing something small. Even a little bit of activity makes a significant difference", lead researcher Jacob Sattelmair said.
