SAN ANTONIOIf you find yourself dreading exercising you're not alone.

Sometimes it's hard to find time in the day to even think about exercising... we've all been there.

Studies have shown from The American Heart Association, The American Diabetes Association, and The American College of Sports Medicine that people need at least 150 minutes (2 and ½ hours) of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity per week.

To put that study into perspective, that’s as little as walking 30 minutes a day, five days a week.

Benefits of physical activity and exercise

  • Reductions in cardiovascular disease
  • Reduction in diabetes, mortality and even cancer.
