Do you find it hard to keep up with regular physical activity?
If so, you’re not alone. In 2015, only 49% of adults 18 and older met the federal physical activity guidelines for aerobic physical activity. Only 20.9% of adults met both the aerobic physical and muscle-strengthening activity guidelines.*
The good news is that you don’t need an expensive trainer or gym membership to help you get the physical activity you need. You can find aerobic and strength-training opportunities everywhere. Try these things at home or work to keep moving:
Wash and wax your car.
Swap out your desk chair with an exercise ball.
Park farther from building entrances.
Plant a garden.
