Every Movement Counts, So Just Get Active
This podcast addresses the latest government guidelines on exercise
(Editor's note: This podcast is from The Not Old – Better show.)
Today's show is part of our Fitness Friday series. We hear from returning guest, Sabrena Jo, a favorite with our Not Old – Better audience. She is the director of science and research content for the American Council on Exercise (ACE), a nonprofit that sets fitness industry standards and provides certification for exercise professionals and health coaches.
ACE also works with policymakers, fitness industry leaders and community organizations to promote exercise as a way to stay healthy and prevent inactivity-related diseases.
Sabrena Jo shares important information about the latest government guidelines on exercise. They reflect a broader definition of what it means to be active. It isn't only about vigorous exercise like jogging and weight-lifting, but also less-strenuous activity, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, bird-watching and parking the car farther away from your destination so you walk more. Every movement counts.
