According to The President's Council On Fitness, Sports, And Nutrition:
"Adults should get at least two and a half hours (150 minutes) each week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity. You need to do this type of activity for at least 10 minutes at a time as intervals shorter than this do not have the same health benefits. Adults should also do strengthening activities, like push-ups, sit-ups and lifting weights, at least two days a week."
That gives you an opportunity-if you're looking to become the owner of a franchise. Especially if you're a U.S. Military Veteran. An opportunity to participate in helping lots of people get in shape so they can live longer, healthier lives.
Bonus: If you decide to open a fitness-related franchise business, you'll have unlimited opportunities to stay in shape yourself, since you own the gym!
If you were in the military, you know the importance of fitness, no matter which branch you were in. And, each branch focuses on fitness in a different way.
Do you remember the specific things you did, fitness-wise in your branch?
