Exercise is medicine. Protect yourself from communicable diseases like COVID-19, and non-communicable diseases like heart disease, cancer & diabetes with regular, moderate exercise.
Research shows regular, moderate exercise can strengthen the body’s immune system.
The CDC recommends at least 150-minutes of moderate intensity physical activity during the week either accumulated over many shorter bouts (5-10 min), or fewer longer bouts (30-60 mins).
Even with gyms closed there are many simple ways you can stay active during the “Stay Well at Home Order”:
- · Going for walks, hikes or riding your bike while maintaining 6 feet of distancing from others
- · Performing exercises at home such as calisthenics, stretching, push-ups, crunches, and so on
- · Doing physical activities with your kids
