Top 10 Tweets from the #WhyGetActive Chat

Last month, IHRSA hosted a Twitter chat to open up the conversation around creating a global culture of physical activity - a world where exercise is the norm. These are some of our favorite tweets from the chat, in no particular order.

1. Mark Daly getting the conversation started early. 

2. Fitneff identified a laundry list of reasons to be active. 

3. Mollly Kemmer and the real way time has become our greatest barrier to exerise. 

4. Kilian Fisher - the club as the community hub, like the old Irish pubs. 

5. The American Heart Association points out that employee health is a really important part of the equation.

6. It's time to put a stop to mixed messages. Exercise is good for us, period.

7. Fitness is not a fad.

8. Focusing on members and their goals is key.

 9. It is vital that leaders like @FLOTUS set a good example. 

10. We had a dog join our Twitter Chat. Since dogs can help their owners be more active, it only seemed right that we included our best friends on the chat. 

If you'd like to see the whole chat, we made a recap on Storify
