If you are here, chances are you might want to try a good sweat session.
A study conducted by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center concluded that 2.5 hours of exercise per week could lead to increased life expectancy by as much as 27%. Getting active can also reduce your risk of developing several types of cancer.
We all start somewhere, so find a timeframe to be active without overdoing it. Start with just 15 minutes a day and gradually increase as you become adjusted to your new, healthy lifestyle.
No one likes a boring workout routine. Find ways to move that you are excited about! Whether you are rolling out your mat for yoga or grabbing your free weights for strength training, explore fitness options that get you excited to get active.
Make exercise a priority by incorporating it daily into your schedule. Add a reminder on your phone or pop it into your email calendar.
Incorporating something new into your routine can feel stressful, but switching the narrative can make fitness feel less like a chore and more like a luxury. Exercise is self-care, not another thing on your to-do list! Be grateful for showing up that day and doing your best.
Nothing is better than fitness with friends. Connect with someone in your life and get active together. Not able to see your friends in person? Try live and on-demand classes that you can take together, virtually.
It doesn’t matter how you get active, as long as you do! Are you up for the challenge? Take the first step toward your next sweat session by registering for this year’s virtual #PreventCancer5k.
