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.
