SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Gary Herbert was joined by Reps. Eric Hutchings, R-Kearns, and Paul Ray, R-Clearfield, in his office Thursday to encourage Utahns to exercise more.
Hutchings and Ray are working with school districts to incorporate more exercise into the school day.
"We want to make sure we're healthy," the governor said as he and Hutchings pedaled the bikes, citing studies that have shown just 20 minutes of exercise a day increases brain power.
The bikes will be in the House through the end of the legislative session for lawmakers to use.
