Start a fitness routine

The benefits of physical activity are endless. Incorporating physical activity can be easy, fun, and doesn't require hours and hours to be effective.

Just 20 minutes a day — like taking a walk, gardening, swimming, or doing yoga — can help improve your physical and emotional health. Some benefits are immediate such as stress relief, reduced anxiety, and better sleep. Long-term benefits can include improved strength and balance, increased energy, reduced blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, and reduced risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

For personalized recommendations, log into your Virgin Pulse account and select "Benefits." Recommended programs will be listed and are based on your Health Check Assessment results. You may need to scroll down to view the list and to see additional options. Click "View All" from the menu at the top.
