Physical activity basics

Regular physical activity can help prevent, treat, and sometimes even alleviate some of the most common chronic conditions one may encounter, including high blood pressure, obesity, and type 2 diabetes – just to name a few. Our Training Team offers insight on some common fitness questions whether you’re already working out or just getting started.

American College of Sports Medicine recommends 30 to 60 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise five or more days per week, or 20 to 60 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise at least three days per week. You can mix moderate and intense workouts, and exercise bouts don’t need to be continuous. For example, you can do three 10 minute bouts throughout the day.

To maximize health benefits, a combination of aerobic-type (such as walking or running)and strength-type (lifting weights or body weight exercises)should be performed 2-3x per week.

Over-exercising, or exercising too intensely, can be detrimental and could lead to injury, fatigue, insomnia and diminishing results. To receive a unique workout plan tailored to your own personal needs, it’s best to consult with a fitness expert. Reach out to our team for a custom training program specifically focused on helping you reach your health and wellness goals.
