Workout Tip: A common question is how often, how long & what type of workouts should I be doing. Unfortunately, there is not just one correct answer, rather the what, when & how much depends on your goals. In general, your exercise regimen should include cardio, strength & flexibility. Unless you are an athlete training for a specific sport, the reason we exercise is for health benefits: improves cardiorespiratory health & function; helps build & maintain bones, muscles & joints; enhances flexibility & posture; improves balance; helps you lose weight & keep it off; reduces risk of future medical complications (diabetes, heart disease, etc.). To promote & maintain health, all healthy adults need to engage in moderate‐intensity (exertion level of 6‐8 on a scale of 1‐10; should be able to talk but not sing) aerobic physical activity for a minimum of 30 min/day on 5 days/week. Or, vigorous‐intensity (intervals where fluctuate between low (4‐6) & high (8‐10) intensity levels) aerobic activity for a minimum of 20 min/day on 3 days/week. You can break‐up the days doing cardio some days & strength other days such as MWF Cardio & TTH Strength or combine Cardio & Strength into a circuit or group exercise class MWF. To get more workout ideas tailored to your specific goals, schedule limitations, etc. you can schedule an appointment with one of our certified personal trainers. ‐Cardiovascular Activity (3‐5 days): Jogging, Cycling, Elliptical, Stepmill, etc. You can do 30 min of one or for a better workout try 3 different options for 10 minutes each ‐Strength Training (2‐3 non‐consecutive days): Weights, Bodyweight exercises,
