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

Making slight modifications to your daily routine can lead to monumental life transformations. If you want to expand your range of motion and incorporate more physical activity into your day, then you’ve got to go small and walk home.
Move It Positive Affirmations Feature
Positive affirmations can help motivate you to pursue new healthy habits and overcome existing challenges by replacing that little negative voice in the back of your head with words of encouragement.
Move It Endurance Featured
Incorporating regular aerobic workouts into your weekly fitness routine can help you stay healthy by reducing the risk of major health conditions such as obesity, heart disease, and high blood pressure.
Move It Habit Stacking Featured
Many of us make coffee in the morning, and the brewing process takes between 5 – 10 minutes. During the time you wait for your coffee, you can easily add a new better-for-you behavior into your schedule, such as a few sets of high knees or light jogging in place.
This Monday, keep a record of your workouts. Tracking your fitness accomplishments will help identify useful patterns, reveal a picture of your overall performance, and help you stay on top of your progress.
Move It Assess feature
An important way to avoid injury and stay active is knowing your fitness level. A quick self-assessment can help you identify which parts of your body are strong and which parts may need attention.
By putting in a little time beforehand, you’ll reduce your risk of injury and get the most out of your workout. This Monday, learn all you need to know about readying your body and mind for exercise.
Move It Pushup Feature
Executing the standard push-up requires a certain amount of base strength and flexibility, but there are numerous variations available to individuals of all ages and fitness levels.
