Remain Active

Any activity is better than none. If you are inactive, slowly increase your activity level. Even 60 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity per week provides health benefits. Remember, your goal is long-term success. If you reach too far, too soon, you are more likely to injure yourself or drop out.
Physical Activity recommendations include:
    • 30 aerobic minutes of moderate intensity 5 times per week, or 25 minutes of vigorous intensity 3 times per week. These minutes can be broken up into three 10-minute segments throughout the day with the same benefits.
    • Strength-train at least two days a week with a day of recovery in between workouts.
    • Stretching and Flexibility two to three times a week.
