New Patient Paperwork
May National Physical Fitness and Sports Month
Sponsor: President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, & Nutrition
South Central Medical & Resource Center is supporting the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition in honor of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. During the month of May, we challenge all adults to get 30 minutes of physical activity every day.
Did you know that regular physical activity increases your chances of living a longer, healthier life? It also reduces your risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, and some types of cancer. Yet in Oklahoma many don’t get the recommended amount of physical activity.
The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that adults:
- Aim for 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate aerobic activity each week. Moderate activity includes things like walking fast, dancing, swimming, and raking leaves.
- Do muscle-strengthening activities – like lifting weights or using exercise bands – at least 2 days a week.
Children should be getting 1 hour of vigorous physical activity per day.
Physical activity is for everyone. No matter what shape you are in, you can find activities that work for you. Together, we can rise to the challenge and get more active during the month of May!
South Central Medical & Resource Center is providing a Lifestyle Improvement series of classes, watch for future advertisement of classes.
