AEROBIC ACTIVITY

 
  home  
One way to meet your physical activity goals is by participating in aerobic activities. Aerobic exercise includes any activity that makes you breathe hard and increases your heart rate for a sustained period of time. Common aerobic activities include walking, swimming, and bicycling.

Experts recommend moderate-intensity exercise. This pace may make you breathe harder and make it more difficult to talk, but you should still be able to carry on a conversation. If you are just beginning, slowly work up to moving at a moderate-intensity pace.

Get Started!
Here are some ideas to help you start your physical activity program:
  • Take a brisk walk around the block with family, friends, or coworkers.
  • Walk up the stairs instead of taking the elevator when it is safe to do so.
  • Mow the lawn.
  • Take an activity break at work or home. Get up, stretch, and walk around.
  • Park your car farther away from entrances of stores, movie theatres, or your home and walk the extra distance when it is safe to do so.
  • Take a beginnerís level low-impact aerobics or step class.
