Get Moving! Add More Cardio Exercise Challenge

February's Goal: Work out 3 times a week.

If you're not exercising much or at all, the goal this month is to start by exercising for 30 minutes, three times a week—or the equivalent. If you're at that level now, increase to five times per week, or up the intensity. The health benefits of regular exercise are legion and linked to the success of healthy eating habits. Yet it so often seems impossible to squeeze such a good thing into a busy daily routine. Those who do get into the habit know, however, that exercise begets exercise. The problem is starting a realistic routine.

We turned to Myatt Murphy, CSCS, author of The Body You Want in the Time You Have, offers easy tips and advice to help you get moving over at our Support Center.
