After reviewing Chapter 1 in the course text, address the following discussion prompt:
A common equivalent used to define exercise intensity is a MET level. As a health care professional working in the health and wellness field, it is a term you need to become familiar with. Introduce yourself to the class, and then define the term “MET level.” Explain specific MET levels for light, moderate, and vigorous activities as explained in the course text. Finally, list one psychological benefit from participating in a regular exercise program. Include one scholarly reference formatted in APA style in your initial post.
Respond to three of your peers by Day 7. In each of your responses, discuss some of your current activities you engage in and their equivalent MET levels.
