What ac­tiv­ity should I do?

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Energised -

Any­thing that gets you mov­ing on a reg­u­lar ba­sis! This may in­volve start­ing out with three 30-minute walks a week for one per­son and three spin classes and two weights work­outs for an­other. This de­pends on what your goals are as well as what’s con­ve­nient and re­al­is­tic for you. Ide­ally a com­bi­na­tion of ac­tiv­i­ties that help improve flex­i­bil­ity, car­dio fit­ness and strength is best. It’s equally im­por­tant you choose to in­clude ac­tiv­i­ties that you like along with peo­ple whose com­pany you en­joy; this way you will be more in­clined to keep on track. Here are some ex­am­ples of ac­tiv­i­ties along with a few ex­tra guide­lines to

help point you in the right di­rec­tion:

If you plan on join­ing a gym, re­search your op­tions. Make sure it’s close by, fi­nan­cially vi­able, and you like the en­ergy of the place.

If you want to in­clude weights in your rou­tine and don’t have previous ex­pe­ri­ence with re­sis­tance ex­er­cise, hire a trainer for a few ses­sions to teach you cor­rect tech­nique and give you guid­ance as to what ex­er­cises are ap­pro­pri­ate for you. You may pre­fer to work out at home, in which case a good op­tion would be to fol­low some on­line work­outs.

If you love mu­sic and danc­ing, sign up to a 10-week salsa course – there’s 10 weeks of com­mit­ment right there! Al­ter­na­tively, if you pre­fer to play sport, sign up for a sea­son.
