Physical inactivity or a sedentary lifestyle increases the risk of heart attacks by over 30%.  The American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology recommend 20 to 30 minutes of physical activity 4 to 5 times a week.  This is equivalent to 2000 to 4000 steps a day using the Dr. Semler’s HeartPerks App.  

Walk 2,000 steps which equals 1 mile and approximately 100 calories.

According to the American College of Cardiology  physical activity improves circulation, lowers blood pressure, and  helps reduce stress which can prevent and manage heart disease.
