National Physical Fitness and 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. 

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.

Physical activity is for everyone. No matter what shape you are in, you can find activities that work for you. ​

Here are just a few benefits of physical activity:

  • Children and adolescents – Physical activity can improve muscular fitness, bone health, and heart health.

  • Adults – Physical activity can lower the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer.

  • Older adults – Physical activity can lower the risk of falls and improve cognitive functioning (like learning and judgment skills).
