How Long Do You Sit? Take The Quiz!

What is your movement number?

Take the quiz below and find your movement number. In one to two minutes you will have a gauge on your daily movement and some ideas on how to move more each day.

Your Movement Number is a simple, unscientific assessment. Think of it as a gauge to measure your kinetic motion and daily habits. If you move enough, your Movement Number will be higher; if you have some improvements to make—incremental, simple and steady—then your number will be lower. It’s a conscious, personal way to set a benchmark and progress toward improved overall health.
