  • Participants may enroll in the program at any time. Active Ichabod is an on-going program designed to reward participants who embrace healthy lifestyles for the long-term.

2. Be Active!

Active Ichabod recognizes all types of physical activity, not just “formal” exercise. This includes: cardiovascular activity, strength training, fitness classes, sports, and positive daily activity habits (including household chores).

The US Surgeon General reports that “Significant health benefits can be obtained by including a moderate amount of physical activity (e.g., 30 minutes of brisk walking or raking leaves, 15 minutes of running, or 45 minutes of playing volleyball) on most, if not all, days of the week. Through a modest increase in daily activity, most Americans can improve their health and quality of life.”
