MACON, Ga. -- It’s time to put on your running shoes, because it is National Running Day .

On this day, runners share their passion for running and beginners can begin a life-changing commitment to running.

According to Fitness Xtreme personal trainer Daniel Reese, a health diet and physical activity practices can lower the risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.

According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention:

  • In Georgia, 50.8% of adults have at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity per week.
  • 35.2% of adults were overweight while 30.5% of adults had obesity.

Reese says it is important to not only incorporate cardio into your day to day but stretch, and hydrate in these summer months before, after and during your workout.

Below are three you can do in the comfort of your own home:

1. Squats

2. Mountain climbers

3. Jogging in place

4. Bicycling

Whether you run a few miles or just around the block, today is a perfect day to go for a run.
