Did you know?

According to the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM) recommendations for cardiorespiratory exercise, adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week. This rounds to about  30-60 minutes of exercise (five days per week).

However, and here’s the fun fact, one continuous session of 30 minutes or three smaller sessions of ten minutes are both acceptable and have similar effects!

For example, you can either have a nice 30 minute jog around the lake OR do three smaller activities like walking the dog, rollerblading during your lunch, and riding a bike around your neighborhood all for ten minutes. Both options will give you similar results. How fun is that?
