As an essential facet of healthy living, aerobic exercise contributes to keeping your body mobile and functional. Cardiovascular activity1 is important throughout our lives, helping improve cardiovascular health, maintain healthy weight, and much more. In fact, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity activity2. One of the activity guidelines is simply, “Move more and sit less!” With iFIT, you can reach that 150-minute recommendation without ever leaving home.
