Text in this Example:

Aerobic Activity
is any activity that speeds up your heart and breathing while moving your body at a moderate or vigorous pace. (See below for examples.) If you have been inactive for a while, you may want to start with easier activities, such as walking at a gentle pace. This lets you build up to more intense activity without hurting your body.
Lifestyle Activities
are the day-to-day activities that you do. These activities can really add up and increase the number of calories you burn each day. They may also boost your energy and mood by getting your blood and muscles moving. Examples of lifestyle activities include:
Strengthening Activities
include lifting weights, using resistance bands, and doing push-ups or sit-ups.
Types of Activities
playing basketball or soccer
dancing (square dancing, salsa, African dance, swing)
