Get Moving: Benefits of Moderate Physical Activity
You might think that you need to spend hours and hours in the gym each week to maintain or improve your health.

While strength training and gym activities provide their own benefits, you can help your body with just 20 minutes of moderate physical activity per day.

Brisk walking is great for those who are not physically prepared to kick things up a notch. Start slowly and build in intensity. If you have a chronic health condition, it’s best to consult with your doctor before undertaking physical activity outside of your norm.

Dr. David Sabgir joins host Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss the benefits of moderate physical activity.
