Get up, get moving with the Consistency Club
BATON ROUGE - The average person sits between 8-15 hours/day. Health professionals say that number is too high. That's why the Consistency Club wants to get you up and moving.
"We have so many technological advances that we have become a sedentary people," Nettye Johnson told Kylie Dixon this morning on 2une In. "It has such a detrimental impact on our health that experts are calling sitting the new smoking."
That led to the creation of the Consistency Club. The group is based out of Denham Springs but communicates nationally with similar groups across the country. The goal is for all members to move 100 miles/month. How you reach that number is up to you.
"So often people try to get active by doing what everyone else does," Johnson explained. "What we really want people to do is look at their own health, so that 100 miles can be whatever is the best fit for you."
