Move It Monday to Jump-Start Your Week

We offer simple, accessible exercises to help you get moving at home, at work, or in the community.

Weekly Practices

You don’t have to do your 30 minutes of daily physical activity all in one shot. Find creative ways to incorporate more walking into your normal routine.
The health benefits of dancing are often overlooked, but the combination of simple movements and moderate pace makes it an accessible (and fun) form of physical activity for people of all ages and fitness levels.
You don’t need a treadmill, weights or a squat rack to build muscle at home; with a little creativity, you can fashion a number of household items into fitness gear.
If you’re using this Monday to begin a new fitness routine, this is a great step toward following a healthy lifestyle! However, before you start moving, make sure you start smart and ease yourself in.
Yoga is relaxing. Plus, it helps stave off stress and anxiety, builds strength, improves cardiovascular health, and curbs low-back pain. Start your week moving with some yoga on Monday.
Regardless of age or ability level, sometimes it’s just hard to find the energy, motivation, or confidence to get back into a workout routine, but by identifying our own fitness fears, we are better equipped to address and overcome them.
You don’t have to completely reorganize your life to protect yourself from the onset of chronic diseases. Use Eric Adams’s suggestions from Healthy at Last to add more physical activity into your weekly routine.
Fall is here, and that means hot apple cider, horror movies, and a lot more flannel; but the changing of the season also means new opportunities for outdoor activities.
