Physical Activity

Regular exercise has been shown to reduce the risk of certain diseases such as high blood pressure, stroke, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, colon cancer, and osteoporosis.

The Center of Disease Control and Prevention Recommends

  • Children (aged 6-17) should get 60 minutes of aerobic activity per day. This includes vigorous activity and strengthening activities 3 days per week.
  • Adults should do 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity and strengthening activities 3 days per week.
  • Older adults should participate in guided physical activities to improve strength, prevent falls, improve cardiovascular performance, and restore resilience and social connection.
