New Physical Activity Guidelines

The U.S. Office of Disease Prevention has released its updated “Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.” Only 26% of men, 19% of women, and 20% of adolescents meet these recommendations. For adults, that’s 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity and two days of muscle-strengthening activity. Will you have a New Year’s resolution focused on wellness? If so, use a coach, gym resource, motivational videos, or even your EAP to keep yourself on track if motivation slips.

Fact: Half of all American adults have one or more preventable chronic diseases, and 10% of all premature mortality is associated with failure to meet recommended levels of aerobic physical activity.
