Turn A Fitness Ambassador ToYour Family

Be it losing weight or staying fit requires a workout regime which requires dedication and a little knowledge on the kind of exercise that suits the goal. Aerobic exercises (Aerobic means “requires oxygen’) otherwise referred as Cardio helps to boosts the overall fitness by conditioning your heart and lungs. Strength training can increase your overall strength, tone your muscles and boost your bone density. Including both cardio and strength training in your exercise routine will provide better result.

How long should I work out?

While the WHO states that 150 minutes a week, Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) prescribes 25 to 30 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise (Cardio) at least 3 times a week and muscle strengthening activities twice a week. A single set of 12 repetitions for each muscle group may be enough to maintain your strength. As we grow older we tend to lose muscle mass and hence strengthening exercise becomes all the more important. Fitness is not just about losing weight or getting into a particular size. Fitness means endurance, energy, stamina ! Its about playing with your kids with full energy. Its about walking a few kilo meters without getting tired or getting out of breath when you climb. Ladies! Take that first step towards fitness and become a fitness ambassador for your family.
