Go Active! Be Healthy. Get active and choose physical activity that you like to do. Start small and increase the time and intensity level as you progress. Regular physical activity can lead to improved fitness and strength, growth and development, mental health and mood, and give you a chance of living longer. It can also help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, types of cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and osteoporosis.

Active Play is unstructured, child-led, often spontaneous physical activity. Find out how to increase active play in your child’s life.

Active transportation uses human-powered energy to get to places. It is an easy way to fit physical activity into your daily routine.
