  • Heart disease is the number one killer and, according to the American Heart Association, walking 30 minutes a day can greatly reduce your risk.

    Did you know that 70 percent of Americans don't get enough exercise? Almost 65 percent of American adults are overweight or obese.

    Despite U.S. employees working 164 more hours than they did twenty years ago, sedentary jobs increased 83 percent since 1950.

    Health problems cost corporate America nearly $226 billion annually in productivity losses.
