Exercise Primer

The benefits of regular exercise are many and well known although as a nation we are exercising less and growing heavier.

Start exercising today - take a new lease on your life - anything you do over what you're not doing now is a great beginning. Your ideal goal should be 20-30 minutes of heart rate elevating activity every other day, but 3 days per week would be excellent. The goal is NOT to become a world class athlete, but to get fit and if at all possible to get to your ideal body weight.
