The Activity Quiz

Are you ready to start exercising, but don't know where to start? This quiz from the CDC and AARP can get you off on the right foot.

1. To get the best workout possible, you need to visit a gym.
2. For the best home workout, follow an exercise video—even if you can't stand working out in front of the TV.
3. It's important to include some kind of aerobic activity in your exercise routine.
4. Working out with weights is too strenuous for older people.
5. Stretching exercises can help prevent falls.
6. Whatever exercise you choose to do, start out slowly and work up.
7. Always talk to your doctor before beginning a new exercise program.
8. Remember, "no pain, no gain."

Substantial growth in athletic participation, the increased emphasis on sport competition, and the greater attention paid to amateur athletics have motivated legislators, educators, and community leaders in many states to mandate coaches' education.

An annual conference developed by
Valley Health Rehabilitation Services provides area coaches with cutting-edge information to prevent athletic injuries and improve athletic performance. The conference is offered free of charge.
