Canadians Don’t Get Enough Exercise

This article describes a study shows that Canadians do not get enough daily exercise. 

The Canadian government is coming up with updated physical activity guidelines in late January 2011.  Currently, to maintain a healthy weight you should get (as an adult) 60 minutes of activity each day.  That means heart-pumping, not just a stroll or standing.  To lose weight, that means 60 to 90 minutes of activity each day.
