During America on the Move Week in September, Y members tracked their daily activities.
Loretta Kennedy took more than 96000 steps during that week.
She exercises at the Y four days a week. She counted her other daily activities as she cleaned and walked and gardened to see how it all adds up to control her weight and improve her health.
Kennedy said "I thought it was very interesting. I thought as a health wise, as well to stay in shape. I found it was a very good thing to do."
Albany Area YMCA Executive Director Dave Wallace recommends you get on the move. "Take the steps. Park a little further away from the grocery store. Swim, bike, run, just get out in the yard and walk around. All kinds of things. It's really limited only by one's imagination what they can do to enjoy a healthy active lifestyle," Wallace said.
America on the Move reports that more than 60-percent of adults don't get the recommended 30-minutes of physical activity each day.
The Y-M-C-A says they can help you improve your health by helping you become more active.
