The CDC recommends we engage in 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week. That is only 2 hours and 30 minutes – less than the time it takes to binge 5 episodes of This Is Us! FIT150 focuses on incorporating moderate-intensity aerobic activity along with weight training muscle-strengthening activities on 2 or more days a week that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms) for substantial health benefits.

WHAT IS “MODERATE-INTENSITY?”

An easy way to gauge how hard you’re working is the “talk test.” If you can talk, but are not able to sing during the activity, that’s moderate-intensity. If you are not able to say more than a few words without having to pause for a breath, you’re working too hard. 

FUN ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:

Walking briskly at 3 miles per hour or faster    •    
Water aerobics    •    
Bicycling slower than 10 miles per hour
Tennis (doubles)     •    
Ballroom dancing    •    
General light gardening.

Grab a friend, family member, co-worker, or your dog. Exercise is much more fun with a buddy.

Worried about the time commitment?
Don’t be - break it into 10 minute chunks throughout the week
