Home Workouts

There are lots of options to keep fit if you have to remain at home.

The guidelines recommend 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity five days a week for adults, but short bouts of physical activity (even 10 minutes at a time) can quickly add up to 30 minutes. For kids its 60 minutes a day.

The important thing is that no matter what your age or circumstance you need to keep moving, so make sure to include some physical activity in your daily plan.

Here are some activities to get you going:
