However the type of exercise is our choice. There are no one-size-fits-all exercise programs. Some individuals choose extreme sports events like marathons. Others prefer to sign up for classes at the gym or walk with a partner.
The type of activity is irrelevant. The only criteria are to push ourselves outside of our comfort zone and ramp up our heart rate.
Committing to an exercise program is probably the biggest challenge. If we are not currently working out, the best plan is to start small, after consulting with your healthcare professional. Set aside 15 minutes a week and engage in some form of physical activity. It could be walking, jogging, swimming or anything which raises our heart rate. Sweating in the course of the workout, is even better.
Then slowly add a second workout session per week and increase the time gradually as well. Find an enjoyable activity. Or partner with someone to make an exercise commitment a social activity.
