Good reasons to get off your butt and move!

As many of you know, I am taking a kineseology course at the University of Minnesota and this past few weeks we have been discussing the importance of exercise.  We saw this movie in class this week and I thought it was so good that I would share it with you.

Sedentary Death Syndrome -SeDS (inactivity)  is the second greatest threat to our public health -  tobacco is #1.  Guidelines have been set by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) on the importance of being physically active.  They recommend that adults should at a minimum do 2 l/2 hours every week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity to promote health and reduce the risks of chronic diseases.  That's 30 minutes 5 times/week.  Everyone can do get out and start moving.

Have a healthy day!
