Fall/Winter Exercise Plan: October-January
UW Health is proud to be the exclusive local sponsor of Go Red for Women, helping the American Heart Association promote awareness of prevention of heart disease in women. Together, we work to provide women with ways to live a heart-healthy life, no matter how busy life may get.
This issue, we’re offering readers fun, seasonal activities to try as a part of your regular exercise and diet plan. Consider hanging this list on your refrigerator and encouraging your family and friends to join you.
Remember, it is best to work out most days of the week, so consider taking a brisk walk or jogging for at least 30 minutes five to seven days per week.
