The American Heart Association recommends adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, or at least 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity, such as running, each week. You should also do moderate- to high-intensity muscle strengthening at least two days a week.

Children age two and older should participate in at least 60 minutes of enjoyable, moderate-intensity physical activities each day that are developmentally appropriate, such as walking, bicycle riding and gardening.
