Healthy Activities

30 Minute Body Weight Exercises

Daily physical activity is one of the most important factors in maintaining good health.  A weekly exercise routine will insure you're getting the movement your body needs.  This plan requires only 30 minutes a few times a week and no expensive equipment.  All you need is your desire to feel better.  Below you'll find an exercise plan for the first three weeks.  After you've completed that... Repeat or make up your own.  Just get moving!   Remember to check with your healthcare provider before starting any exercise program.

CATCH Health at Home

With schools across the country closing due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), it’s important to keep kids engaged, healthy, and active at home.  The CATCH Global Foundation has released “Health at Home” – a free set of health, nutrition, and physical education materials that require limited space and supervision.  

Our Health Education Coordinator, Ashleigh Story, is providing K-8th Grade lessons right to your home!  Some of these lessons have supporting documents and homework to follow along.

Lessons cover "Go, Slow, & Whoa" foods as well as "Go" Activities.  Let's keep our minds and bodies moving together!  

To contact Ashleigh please don't hesitate to email her Ashleigh.Story@arkansasobesity.org
