Why is Physical Activity Important to Wauwatosa?

Nutrition and physical activity are essential to the management and prevention of many chronic diseases.

The recommended amount of physical activity for adults is moderate activity for at least 30 minutes, 5 or more days a week. Vigorous activity is recommended at least 20 minutes, 3 or more days per week. In the 2015 community survey, only 47% of Wauwatosa adults reported getting the recommended amount of activity per week.
