Tip #1: find something that you love that can get you moving every day, and then you’re probably getting enough exercise.
The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends getting at least 30 minutes 3-5 times per week of moderate intensity exercise in order to be considered healthy. This 30 minutes can be broken up into chunks as well, so you could maybe even consider a 10 minute walk to the bathroom on the other side of your office block 3 times per day as your daily exercise completed. That doesn’t sound awfully inspiring though, does it?
Personally, I love a good strength training session. I like to keep the intensity high, and I love to feel like I am actually exercising and achieving something when I take the effort to put on gym clothes.
I also have goals for my running, and for my cycling, and even for my climbing, which has taken a terrible (but safe) tumble downhill. I may have a bit too much going on, so training for each discipline is quite a thing to co-ordinate, but I’ll share my progress with you. I am open to tips and suggestions, of course!
