Encourage your Spanish-speaking patients to visit Ejercicioy estado físico, a comprehensive web resource from MedlinePlus that
offers tips on becoming and staying active based on the Department of Health
and Human Services' 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, the latest news on the benefits of
physical activity, and information on exercise-specific topics—such as strength
training, aerobics, and interval training. Users can find links to a heart rate
calculator, food tracker, and calories-burned calculator. Tutorials and videos,
information tailored to women, and patient handouts also are available.
