Who are we?

Just three in 10 adults get the recommended amount of physical activity into their daily routines.  More than a third of adults say they are not physically active at all, according to research from the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.

Are You Active?

Active Living means incorporating physical activity into your daily life. An Active Living lifestyle incorporates non-traditional opportunities for activity, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, gardening, or playing with children as well as participating in more traditional forms of physical activity, such as walking, exercise classes and sports.
