How much exercise do I need?
Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. According to the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, you need to do two types of physical activity each week to improve your health–aerobic and muscle-strengthening.

Aerobic Activity
Aerobic activity should make up most of your child's 60 or more minutes of physical activity each day. This can include either moderate-intensity aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, or
vigorous-intensity activity, such as running. Be sure to include vigorous-intensity aerobic activity on at least 3 days per week.
Muscle Strengthening
Include muscle strengthening activities, such as gymnastics or push-ups, at least 3 days per week.
Bone Strengthening
Include bone strengthening activities, such as jumping rope or running, at least 3 days per week.
