Being Active

  1. Exercise Goals for Healthy Living

    You know it's important to stay active but still find yourself falling back on old habits. What can you do? Planning for exercise isn't hard if you make it a priority.

  2. Give Your Health a Lift

    Weight lifting is one of the fastest-growing U.S. fitness activities. And the American Heart Association recently threw its weight behind weight lifting, too.

  3. Keep Moving to Manage Your Weight

    You can lose weight by dieting, exercising, or a combination of both. Including exercise into your daily routine offers other benefits besides weight control.

  4. Lifting Your Way to Weight Loss

    If you've tried a dozen diets but the pounds always sneak back, you may be able to lose them for good by making strength-training an integral part of your weight-loss program.

  5. Move to the Music: Dancing as Exercise

    The benefits of dancing go well beyond heart health and physical fitness. Dancing, especially group dance activities, provides opportunities for people of all ages to be socially and mentally engaged, as well.

  6. Tai Chi: Exercise for Mind and Body

    Tai chi is called a mind-body type of exercise because it combines meditation, focused breathing, and physical movement. Because it’s also a low-impact exercise, it may be particularly well suited for older adults, but it’s a beneficial exercise for people of all ages.

  7. Using Dumbbells for a Fast and Effective Workout

    Dumbbells, one of the most underrated and versatile types of exercise equipment, can help you build strength and muscular endurance.

  8. Walking Works for Everyone

    Walking is easy because you can do it almost anywhere and at any time. It also offers a range of health benefits.

  9. You Can Be Your Own Fitness Coach

    If you don’t have the time or money to meet with a trainer, just hire yourself to get the job done.
