Exercise Recommendations

Are you getting enough exercise? The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans set by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) provides a minimum weekly exercise recommendation. While more is ideal, strive to get at least the recommended time.

  • Children & Teens: 1 hour of moderate to vigorous activity daily
  • Adults: 2 ½ hours of moderate to vigorous activity per week
