SAN ANTONIO – If you dread exercise, you are not alone.
Sometimes it’s hard to find time in the day to even think about exercising … we’ve all been there.
Studies by the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, and the American College of Sports Medicine have shown that people need at least 150 minutes (2.5 hours) of aerobic physical activity to moderate intensity per week.
To put this study into perspective, it’s as little as walking 30 minutes a day, five days a week.
