Fitness and Physical Activity
Physical activity is necessary for optimal health and wellness.
The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans describes the major research findings on the health benefits of physical activity:
Types of Physical Activity:
Most of the 60 or more minutes a day should be either moderate- or vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity, and should include vigorous-intensity physical activity at least 3 days a week.
As part of their 60 or more minutes of daily physical activity, children and adolescents should include muscle-strengthening physical activity on at least 3 days of the week.
As part of their 60 or more minutes of daily physical activity, children and adolescents should include bone-strengthening physical activity on at least 3 days of the week.
