ACE applauds revisions to the physical activity guidelines for Americans
According to a recent study by the American Council on Exercise, people who engage in regular physical activity recover from illness and injury much faster than those who are inactive. The council’s research found that active people can fight off infection and heal wounds more quickly than sedentary people because their bodies are better equipped to handle stress. The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans (Guidelines) underwent their first-ever change, which was made public by the American Council on Exercise (ACE), highlighting the crucial role they serve in establishing the standard for a more physically active country. The newly published second edition advises everyday exercise to lower the risk for several chronic illnesses. They have added that any level of daily movement, large or small, is good for one’s health.
