Choose to Move

During the Choose To Move 12-week challenge, women will not only engage in physical activity, but discover a community of women who share a common goal – increase physical activity in order to develop a healthier lifestyle. Their success is a direct result of determination, commitment and the support they received from those in the Choose To Move community. This is a free program by the American Heart Association (AHA). Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States?

Regular moderate exercise or physical activity has many benefits. It can:

1. Strengthen your heart and cardiovascular system

10. Improve sleep.
11. Help you feel more relaxed and rested.
12. Make you look and feel great.
