Get Physically Fit Your Way, Every Day-For Life!

Getting physically fit isn't about having a perfect body. It’s about having a body that makes you feel good inside and out! Everyone has to start somewhere so even if you haven't worked out for months or years, you can start today by making an important decision that will change your life. Thirty minutes a day, five times a week is an easy goal to begin with. You will also experience benefits even if you divide your time into two or three segments of 10 to 15 minutes per day. Choose a variety of activities to include cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, balance and strength training exercises.

Cardiovascular Endurance


Endurance exercise includes activities that increase your heart rate such as walking, jogging, running, swimming, and biking. These types of activities keeps your heart, lungs and circulatory system healthy and as a result can reduce the risk of many diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

Flexibility


Flexibility exercises stretch your muscles and helps prevent tightness especially for those who sit for most of the day at a computer and rarely stretch. The best time to do flexibility exercises is when your muscles are already warm so they can stretch farther without tightness or pain.

Balance Exercise


Having a good balance is important for many activities we do every day, such as walking, reaching, bending and going up and down the stairs. Balance exercises is good for people of every age and can be included in every workout routine that you do. For example, see how long you can stand on one foot on a bosu ball.

Strength & Resistance Training

Strengthening your muscles helps protect your body from injury and speeds up your metabolism which means you'll burn more calories even when your body is at rest. Use a combination of free weights such as dumbbells, machines or your body's own resistance.
