Obesity

Physical Activity

Why should you be physically active? It’s great for you

The American Heart Association recommends that adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each week. You know exercise is good for you. But have you ever considered why it matters?

“Physical activity can improve your health and reduce the risk of developing several chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.”

Elaine Auld, CEO of the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE).
