Individuals with a Physical Disability

One in four US adults has a physical disability. This includes those who have difficulty walking, climbing stairs, hearing, or seeing, etc.15

How Much Do I Need?

For those who have physical disabilities that make it difficult to do everyday tasks, 150 minutes of aerobic exercise is recommended, spread throughout the week.15

Special Considerations

  • The types of physical disabilities people have vary, and no two people are the same. If your disability prevents you from meeting that guideline fully, do what you feel you can do and avoid total inactivity.8
  • People with disabilities are also advised to speak to their health care provider about the kinds of activities they can do that are safe and appropriate for them.15
