Guidelines for Fitness

Here is what the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recommends for adults in order to maintain a healthy fitness level:

  • At least 2 hours and 30 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic workouts, such as brisk walking, or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic workouts like running or jogging
  • For even better results, about 5 hours a week of moderate workouts or 2 hours and 30 minutes of vigorous workouts
  • On top of these aerobic activities, strength-training workouts at least twice a week that involve all major muscle groups
