The key to developing a successful personal activity program is to find activities that you enjoy and that are right for your health & fitness level.
It's recommended that young adults perform 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity everyday.
The recreational activities you choose should be based on your own personal feelings, skills, and reasons for participating in a particular activity.
Most people will stick to their recreational fitness programs if they're having fun and enjoying themselves!
Weather has a huge impact on your safety while participating in activities & workouts.
Regardless if it's hot or cold outside, it's important to wear clean, appropriate clothing for the weather and proper for the activity.
The number of calories burned per day in keeping your body alive is called the basal metabolic rate.
Caloric balance is a comparison between how many calories you burn and how many calories you consume daily.
The process used by your body to convert calories to energy is called metabolism.
If you want to maintain your current weight, the number of calories you consume must be equal to the number of calories you burn. One pound of fat = 3,500 calories.
