Physical Activity

Physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your body.  It can help control your weight, strengthen your bones and muscles, as well as improve your mental health and mood.  Participating in physical activity can also help reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes and reduce your risk of some cancers.

Regular physical activity is essential for weight maintenance and prevention of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer and osteoporosis. Children and adolescents raised in families with active lifestyles are more likely to stay active as adults.
