Weight Management

Weight management requires a balance of healthy eating and regular physical activity. To maintain weight, aim for 150 minutes of moderate activity per week. To lose weight, adjust eating habits and increase physical activity.

Reduce Your Health Risk

150+ minutes of physical activity per week lowers the risk of heart disease and stroke. It also reduces blood pressure and improves cholesterol levels.

Strengthen Your Bones and Muscles

Maintaining healthy bones, joints, and muscles is crucial as you age. Muscle-strengthening activities, like weightlifting, preserve muscle mass and strength. Gradually increasing intensity benefits all ages.

Increase Your Chances of Living Longer

Increasing physical activity by a small amount could prevent 110,000 deaths annually. Adding just 10 more minutes of activity per day makes a difference. Taking more steps daily lowers the risk of premature death for all ages.
