This is a reminder of our meeting on November 14th at 1:30 PM at the YMCA on Aylmer. We have an exciting line-up for this meeting.
Cardiologist David Alter will talk about the importance of an active lifestyle to longevity and overall health. He will explain the concept of trying to achieve a minimum of 750 MET Minutes of activity each week.
Did you know:
Moderate to Vigorous Cycling for an hour, or tennis for an hour are roughly equivalent at 480 MET Minutes.
Walking 3 miles in an hour is 200 MET Minutes.
Mowing the lawn pushing a power mower for an hour is 270 MET Minutes.
Vacuuming for an hour comes in at 210 MET Minutes.
We want to have a lively discussion on how each of us stays active.
