National Physical Fitness & Sports Month

Did you know that regular physical activity increases your chances of living a longer, healthier life? It also reduces your risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, and some types of cancer. 
 

Physical Activity Guidelines

The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that adults:

  • Aim for 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate aerobic activity each week. Moderate activity includes things like walking fast, dancing, swimming, and raking leaves.
     
  • Do muscle-strengthening activities – like lifting weights or using exercise bands – at least 2 days a week.
     

Types of Physical Activity

  • Aerobic activities (meaning “with oxygen”) increase your heart rate and make you breathe harder. Common aerobic activities include running, jogging, brisk walking, bicycling, and swimming.
     
  • Muscle-strengthening activities also help bones and joints. The most common example is weight training, but working with resistance bands (stretch bands), climbing (rope climbing, rock climbing), and certain exercises all contribute to overall strength. These activities also help with posture and injury prevention.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY!

There are many benefits to being physically active. According to the CDC, physical activity not only improves fitness and prevents weight gain, it can also help improve mental health, cognitive function and quality of sleep.

This month, set a goal to do some type of physical activity most if not every day of the week!
