7 simple ways for women to get active
Ten minutes—and a little creativity—are all you need to start meeting your fitness goals.
Health experts say we need to get 150 minutes of moderately intense exercise a week (which works out to about 30 minutes of exercise a day, five days a week). But how we get those two-and-a-half hours of activity is entirely up to us.
Women who love sweating through an hour-long aerobics class at the gym can knock out their weekly goal in just a few days. But those who aren't fond of the gym, or who can't exercise for a full hour (or even a half-hour), don't have to resign themselves to inactivity. Research shows that shorter periods of exercise can add up to better health.
