Moderate and vigorous intensity activities are associated with longevity benefit

A 2015 study Published by JAMA Internal Medicine with 66,1137 participants (29,1485 men and 369 652 women) provides strong evidence that even small amounts of activity provide significant benefits in delaying mortality while ensuring that very active people don't increase the risk of mortality due to the amount of exercise.

Meeting the recommended 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommended a minimum of 75 intense or 150 moderate minutes per week of the aerobic activity was associated with nearly the maximum longevity benefit and substantial health benefit.
