Physical Activity for Retirees

How much physical activity do you get each week? 

Being physically active builds strength and endurance to do the things you love, plus balance and flexibility to move with more ease and safety. It also improves your emotional and physical health. Be active for at least 30 minutes daily, 5 days each week. You can break up activity into increments of 10 or more minutes.
