Q
What is the minimum amount I should exercise to stay in shape?

A

According to current guidelines, a minimum of 150 minutes every week is enough to build and maintain health and fitness.  However for the optimum health benefits, it is recommended that a person should exercise around 450 minutes a week, or a little over an hour per day of light to moderate exercise. Walking is the perfect solution!  So don't worry if you can't get that run in due to an injury, walking will do just fine.  Remember, if you have a foot injury or foot pain keeping you from exercise, make an appointment to see one of our doctors at Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic today.
