Wisconsin lags behind in workouts

More Wisconsinites would rather split a six-pack with friends rather than work out according to a trail running and ultrarunning website. IRunFar.com polled 3,000 Americans and found that the average workout session is approximately 18 minutes, three minutes more than what Wisconsinites usually do. It also lags behind the over 21 minutes a day recommended by the Centers for Disease Control. Bellin Health President and CEO Chris Woleske advises people looking to build up their exercise routine or start a new one to pick something they like and build up slowly.

About 68 percent of respondents say they would get more pleasure drinking with friends rather than working out. In addition to the physical benefits of getting active, Woleske says working out can help improve mood and combat depression. You can listen to the rest of our discussion of staying physically active on our Podcasts page.
