To remain healthy or to improve overall health adults aged 19 to 65+ years need to complete at least an aerobic and strength activity each week.

Just 150 minutes (2.5 hours) a week, only 21 minutes a day, of cycling or jogging and strength training that works all major muscle groups is recommended.
