  • These benefits apply regardless of age, gender, or physical ability.
  • The Department of Health and Human Services suggests:
    • A minimum of 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity per week.
    • Strength training of all major muscle groups at least twice per week.
