Physical activity is part of a healthy lifestyle. The CDC recommends that adults get 150 minutes of physical activity per week. The START! Physical Activity tracker helps you track your activity and encourages you to live an active lifestyle.

The tracker is easy to use. Log your physical activity daily or weekly. Figure out what works best for you and then commit to logging activity on a regular basis.

You can enter steps or active minutes in the tracker. Activities like swimming, walking, and team sports are all part of living an active lifestyle.

Additional features of the tracker:

  • Sync fitness wearables and apps (Fitbit, Garmin, MapMyFitness, and more!)
  • Earn Points for activities entered including pedometer steps
  • Rate the intensity of your activity
