July Physical Activity Challenge

Sponsored by

Physical activity lowers blood pressure and cholesterol and helps maintain a healthy weight, all of which will make you heart-healthier. While 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week is a good goal to shoot for, it's OK to start with a less frequent and shorter regimen and gradually build your way up. After all, the most important thing is to start.

To take this challenge, try to get some exercise daily and make at least 10 entries this month in your CardioSmart activity tracker. Starting July 1, click on the "Take the Challenge" button on the top right to get started!

July Waist Measurement Challenge

Sponsored by

Eating a healthy diet that can help you lose weight will also help you fight or prevent heart disease. Making conscious decisions about nutrition and exercise will not only help you look and feel better, it’ll also improve your heart health. 

To take this challenge, try to measure your waistline once a week and make at least four entries this month in your CardioSmart waist circumference tracker. If you'd like, set up an email reminder to help you remember to measure your waistline once a week. Starting July 1, click on the "Take the Challenge" button on the top right to get started!

How to Measure Your Waist

Stand straight, but relaxed, in front of a mirror. Wear thin clothing or none at all. Don't exhale strongly or try to suck in your belly to make your waist appear smaller. Place the measuring tape around your waist, close to your belly button.

Men who have a waist circumference of more than 40 inches (102 centimeters) and women who have a waist measurement of more than 35 inches (88 centimeters) may have an increased risk of obesity-related diseases.
