In this video from the American Cancer Society called “Prioritizing Physical Activity: The Basics,” personal trainer, Caroline Smith, talks about the importance of staying active.
Smith explains that it’s becoming increasingly harder for people to be more active as our attention is constantly being diverted by screens — TVs, computers, cellphones — and that we need to set aside time throughout the day to be physically active to try to counteract all the time spent sitting in front of our devices.
She discusses some of the options people have for moderate exercise such as taking the dog for a walk, swimming, and cycling, and for vigorous exercise such as running, high-intensity weight training and gym classes.
