Get Fit

Research suggests that accumulating at least 150 minutes of exercise per week (30 minutes most days) can improve your health by reducing your risk of heart disease, hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, depression, and even some forms of cancer.  Other than not smoking, getting 150 minutes of weekly exercise is the single best thing you can do for your health.   Wellness offers both group and individual programs to help you achieve and maintain an active lifestyle.

To receive more information about any of our Get Fit programs or to schedule an appointment, please contact Wellness at long_rm@mercer.edu or 301-2224.
