Strive for 5
The experts say that to maintain good health we need 2.5 hours of moderate exercise per week, i.e., 30 minutes a day for at least 5 days.
Live Healthy Lynchburg, in collaboration with the Lynchburg Regional Chamber of Commerce, brings you this total fitness challenge and activity motivation program named Strive for 5. The program endeavors to help participants “get in 30” minutes on as many days as possible between April 1, 2016 and June 10, 2016.
There are virtually no restrictions on eligible activity—if it gets you moving, raises your heartbeat and tickles your spirit, it counts.
