Moderate levels of aerobic capacity are associated with a reduced risk of high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, obesity, diabetes, some forms of cancer, and other health problems in adults.

Cardiovascular Training Guidelines
Moderate amounts of daily physical activity are recommended for people of all ages. Your child’s physical activity can either be achieved through longer sessions of moderately intense activities, such as brisk 30-minute walk, or in shorter sessions of more intense activities, such as jogging or playing basketball for 15-20 minutes. Physical activity doesn’t have to be strenuous to be beneficial.
