Learn ways to get and stay physically fit

Physical activity helps improve your cholesterol, lowers blood pressure and strengthens bones and muscles, prevents heart disease and gives you more energy. Being active and moving more is also good for your mental health and an important way for you and your family to have some fun and connect with others, too. Remember to increase your activity level gradually and check with your provider if you have any health concerns.
