Why Should I Join?

Minutes in Motion is a fun way to get moving this spring. Improve your health and your attitude by moving your body.

  • If you have not been active lately, start with as little as 5-10 minutes three times a day and add a few more minutes each week.
  • If you are getting 30 minutes of activity already, challenge yourself by trying something new. Add strength training or a new class to your routine. Share what you know with others and help them be successful.
  • Do something you enjoy! Play with your kids, work in your garden, ride a bike, walk your dog, try a fitness class. As long as you are moving your body, you are adding to your "Minutes in Motion"!
