Mark is at risk for type 2 diabetes. His doctor asks him to get at least 150 minutes of activity each week, at a moderate pace or more. But Mark is a busy guy.
On weekdays, Mark takes care of his grandkids while their parents are at work. On the weekend, he works at the library. In the evening, he likes to relax by watching TV.
Mark is having trouble finding time to reach his fitness goal.
Mark decides to make some changes. These days, he gets up 30 minutes sooner so he can take a morning walk. He lifts weights or marches in place while he watches TV. He also plays soccer with his grandkids. It’s great exercise for all of them. Plus, it’s fun.
Mark is finally reaching his fitness goal.
