Fitness for a Healthy You

| Leave a comment

The last holiday cookie has been munched.  The feasting is almost done.   Now that the holiday season is coming to an end (and 2012 is around the corner), everyone seems to be making fitness or getting into shape a New Year’s Resolutionmostly because we‘ve been binging over the holidays and need to get rid of those extra pounds.   :P

Here at Fitbit we want you to put fitness on your Resolution list, but for a very different reason: because it leads to amazing health benefits — like mitigating diabetes and Alzheimers… and even living longer!!   Just dedicating a small amount of time each day to light exercise can garner all these amazing health benefits.  And it’s fun too.

In a very entertaining and motivating video, Dr. Mike Evans walks through the scientific research that shows how simple exercise — like walking just 30 minutes a day (every day) — can be the single most important thing you can do for your health.    Check it out. It will get you to put moving on your resolution list, and keep it too!

23 and 1/2 Hours

It seems simple — 30 minutes a day — or for Fitbitters, we talk about hitting 10,000 steps a day.   If fitness is on your 2012 New Year’s Resolution, let us know what you are aiming to do each and every day.   We are aiming to do 10,000 steps 100% of the days in January.  And we’ll report back our status at the end of January.  Let us know at welovefitbit@fitbit.com if you want to join our resolution or “Like” us on Facebook to tell us there.
