MineFit TidBit: Are You a Gardener? Then consider your cardiovascular system SAFE!

Posted By Darrell Smith, Friday, May 27, 2016
It is the best time of year to garden, and there are undoubtedly many green thumbs amongst the IMA-NA membership base. Gardening is a highly beneficial form of physical exercise, so keep up the planting and growing!

Did you know…?

General gardening, pushing a power mower, and weeding can burn the same amount of calories per hour as jogging or doing the elliptical? At a rate of between 250-500 calories per hour, this outdoor activity is a great way to earn your cook-out food and beverage, and make your garden a beautiful bed of flowers and produce.  

Remember that you should warm-up using the MineFit Super On-Site Stretching Series, and follow other safety precautions you learn at work such as wearing gloves and proper shoes.
