Exercise Basics

Before you start any kind of exercise, learn the basics. Before and after any physical activity, be sure to stretch. Here are some resources to help you stretch safely.

Steps to Fitness!

Walk Kansas is based on the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. It’s important that you find activities you enjoy and that fit into your lifestyle.   The minimum recommendation for moderate physical activity is 150 minutes per week, which is equal to 30 minutes of activity at least five days/week. Muscle strengthening exercises are suggested at least two days each week and you should allow a rest day between.
