Virginia Cooperative Extension’s Family Nutrition Program, in collaboration with the Physical Activity Research and Community Implementation Laboratory of Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise, is excited to announce the availability of free video resources to help Virginians meet the physical activity recommendations of the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. The video resources are part of an initiative to help Virginians exercise by providing free video resources that make exercising at home more enjoyable and safe and is part of the Move More, Virginia! campaign.
The collection of exercise videos and online resources being offered to citizens of the commonwealth were developed by certified group fitness instructors and behavioral scientists, and features three levels of intensity. The videos are upbeat, easy to follow, and offer a range of workout style options. Ranging from 10 to 30 minutes, they are ideal for mixing and matching resources to meet the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans’ recommended 150 minutes of moderate physical activity each week.
The workouts are based on feedback from program assistants and volunteers and work for all fitness levels, with beginner, intermediate, and advanced options in each workout. The resources will offer a variety of workouts, including flexibility exercises, full body workouts, high intensity interval training, resistance band routines, core workouts, and even family-oriented exercises.
