Exercise is Cool!

Children exercise all the time without even thinking of it. Just being active, for example when you run around outside or play kickball at school, are types of exercise. What else counts as exercise?
  • Playing sports
  • Dancing
  • Push-ups
  • Even Toe Touches!
When you exercise, you are helping build a strong body. Try to be active every day and your body will thank you later!

Exercise Makes Your Heart Happy

Your heart is a muscle. It works hard, pumping blood every day of your life. You can help this important muscle get stronger by doing aerobic (say: air-OH-bik) exercise.
