​Your health is critical to the wellbeing of your family. The more active you are, the more likely your kids will follow suit. Children and adolescents (ages 6-17) need at least:
60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day
11,000 steps for girls and 13,000 steps for boys each day
3 days of muscle strengthening physical activity per week
Physical activity is more than just �exercise� or �working out�- it�s living an active lifestyle. Whether it�s walking the dog, doing yard work, or playing with your kids, regular movement throughout the day inspires positive health outcomes over time.
