Fitness Guidelines for Healthy Physical Activity

Fitness Guidelines

Here is a selection of official exercise guidelines issued by health and fitness experts, concerning how much exercise is best in order to stay healthy and control weight.

Advice from American College of Sports Medicine

Adults should engage in moderate-intensity physical activities for at least 30 minutes on 5 or more days of the week.

Guidelines from US Dept of Health

Adults should engage in vigorous-intensity physical activity 3 or more days per week for 20 or more minutes per occasion.

Guidelines from American Heart Association

If you're inactive, doing anything is better than nothing! Studies show that people who have a low fitness level are much more likely to die early than people who have achieved even a moderate level of fitness. If you want to exceed a moderate level of fitness, you need to exercise for 30 to 60 minutes, on most days of the week, at 50-80 percent of your maximum capacity.

Guidelines from American Institute of Medicine

As part of a routine regimen to maintain cardiovascular health, we should all engage in 60 minutes of daily vigorous physical activity.
