5 Tips for Fall Fitness

5 Tips for Fall Fitness

This guest post was written by Sarah Lucero, a journalist, marathoner and AHA volunteer.

A change in seasons brings a change in routine for most of us, including how we engage in physical activities.

So, as you pack away the sunscreen and gyms modify their schedules (and yours), think about outdoor activities fit for fall weather. And be sure to mix it up to keep from getting bored or burned out.

Fall in Love with Cool Weather Fitness

Fall in Love with Cool Weather Fitness

Fall is here, and the change in the weather may have you cheering or jeering. Cheering if you’re an outdoor workout fan and you’re DONE with the summer heat. Jeering if the waning daylight and cooler temps make you want to go into hibernation mode (we feel ya). Either way, fall can be a perfect time to rediscover nature and recommit to being more active.

Tell Restaurants to Lower Sodium

Tell Restaurants to Lower Sodium

Two months ago, thousands of you asked the CEO’s of five of the largest fast food restaurants in the country to offer healthier kids meals. Together, we sent thousands of messages. And, your efforts are making a difference. Earlier this year McDonalds promised to make their kids meals healthier by decreasing sodium and fat levels, while offering water and low-fat milk in place of sodas. This is a great first step, but we are far from done!
