How To Choose The Right Exercise

Not every type of physical activity is right for everyone. The key is to choose an exercise that fits your personality, lifestyle, fitness level, and budget. Here are some factors to consider when finding an activity that will challenge you enough to give you the exercise you need, along with the enjoyment that will keep you doing it.


Anywhere Workout

A simple way to design a workout you can do anywhere and which is infinitely modifiable (to stave off boredom) is to choose 2–4 exercises that fit into each of four categories: upper body, middle body (or “core”), lower body, and cardio.


How To Overcome Fitness Obstacles


A two-pronged approach can help you to overcome the obstacle of (seemingly) too little time to exercise.

Re-think your approach to exercise. Instead of thinking that you need to set aside 30 minutes or an hour, remind yourself that 10 minutes here and 10 minutes there add up to the same result. The CDC recommends at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week for adults—that’s three sets of 10 minutes, 5 days per week. That could be a brisk walk around the block, some standing exercises in your living room or simple weight lifting using full cans of soup, a quick burst of energetic housework, wild dancing to your favorite music.

Organize your time. Buy a planner or create a large wall calendar out of poster board and plan out your week. Include exercise time in the plan. You might be surprised how much time you actually have once its organized.


Importance Of Routine

In addition to contributing to weight loss or healthy-weight maintenance, a regular exercise routine will help you deal with stress. Having a routine that you stick to will also ensure that regular physical activity - ideally 150 minutes per week - will become a part of your life, rather than a big deal that you have to think about and talk yourself into doing.


Choosing The Right Equipment

The best piece of equipment is the one you’re most likely to use regularly. Here are some tips to help you figure out what that is, plus other factors to take into consideration.
