Some people were born to exercise. They get up at 6 a.m. to get a run in before work, or push through the toughest day to make it to a Bootcamp class because it genuinely helps them feel better.
And then there's the rest of us.
If motivating yourself into fitness is a challenge, we're here to help. Because the truth is, exercise is non-negotiable. Being sufficiently active -- defined as 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of intense aerobic activity -- improves every single measure of health. Not only does it help prevent major chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes and some cancers, getting your body moving actually makes you happier, less stressed and more focused. It can even stave off PMS.
This month, as part of our ongoing HuffPost Lifestyle 30Up challenge series, we're going to help you get active with our Move More, Feel Better Challenge. We'll start with basic questions: How much exercise is enough? What's the best workout for you? Then, we'll help you get your form just right, with video tutorials on important moves like squats and push ups. You'll hear from expert trainers, scientists who study exercise's effect on the body, and from regular lazy exercisers like us.
We're in this together. Let's do it!
