It’s a FACT: exercise is the most powerful medication you can “take” to live longer, feel better, and look better. With only150 minutes per week of moderate or greater intensity, your physical and mental health will reap the rewards!

NERD ALERT: Walking around Target is energizing, it doesn’t count toward the 150 minutes that week. This type of walking is considered an incidental activity or N.E.A.T. Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. *sorry
