We all know that physical activity is good for you. Regular physical activity may help prevent or delay many health problems. Being active may help you look and feel better, both now and in the future. So what's stopping you?
Maybe you think that working out is boring, joining a gym is costly, or fitting one more thing into your busy day is impossible. But it’s time to make fitness a priority.
May is National Physical Fitness & Sports Month
