Leave your cars at home!! It's time to head to work a few hours earlier than you thought, because you'll be WALKING!

Okay, maybe it's not THAT extreme, but it IS National Walking Day! LOLz!

Jenny Craig is supporting the AHA (American Heart Association) this year for National Walking Day, because adults seem to be working at computers all day instead of staying healthy! The risk of heart disease doubles when you're physically inactive, so Jenny Craig is teaming up with the AHA to help encourage Americans to get walking! The benefits of walking and moderate physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day can help you reduce the risk of heart disease — so that's what we're all going to do!

Here's how to make it an awesome habit:

Russell Crowe Goes For A Big Apple Run, Leaves His Beard At Home

Filed under: Russell CroweFitnessRunning

Either Russell Crowe shaved his beard, or we're seeing him at the end of his run — having run so fast that his beard flew off his face.

We like to think it's the latter.

LOLz!!

We're always pumped to see how often Russell gets out for physical activity. He's usually riding his bike, though, so we wonder why he decided to take a jog this time instead.

Okay, we kinda miss the beard. Sue us! Ha!

Elementary School Health Program Fights Heart Disease Before It Begins

Filed under: InspirationFitnessObese

Yes! This is such an incredible program and we hope more schools nationwide start to initiate it!

To combat the obesity epidemic plaguing the nation, 12,000 schools have implemented a program designed to create a healthy school environment by promoting healthy eating and physical activity for students.

A report on an Illinois elementary school proves just a few healthy changes can make monumental differences!

To encourage kids to eat healthier they have replaced fried food in the cafeteria with fruits and veggies. The school has also eliminated an annual bake sale fundraiser in favor of raising money while burning calories with a one mile walk-a-thon!

Check out the video above for more details on the amazing initiative that aims to prevent heart disease, our nation's number one killer, before it begins!

Remember, ANY school can take part in this program, so speak to your district officials today to bring change to your area!
