To achieve health benefits, adults should aim for 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity aerobic exercise per week, in sessions of 10 minutes or more. Physical activity that includes muscle and bone strengthening exercises using the major muscle groups should be done at least 2 days per week. It is recommended that children and youth get 60 minutes per day. The key is to invest now for a healthier future, and you can have fun doing it with us.
