  • Recommendations:
    • Be physically active for at least 30 minutes on most days of the week
    • Be active at a moderate or vigorous level
why physical activity
Why Physical Activity?
  • Physical activity is “movement of the body that uses energy” (calories)
  • Calories are used up through activity
  • The more time and intensity of the activity, the more calories are burned
moderate vs vigorous
Moderate vs. Vigorous
  • Moderate intensity: gardening, dancing, hiking or light weight training
  • Vigorous intensity: aerobics, swimming freestyle laps, chopping wood or running 5mph or faster
  • Activities of lower intensity that do not raise heart rate are not counted toward daily physical activity
