The Importance of Exercise!

The importance of exercise (any kind will do).

If you are not used to exercising, here are some tips that may help:
1.    Exercise comes in many flavors.  What it really comes down to is two kinds:
a.    The kind where you exercise your cardiovascular system (aerobic)
b.    The kind where you exercise your muscles (anaerobic)
2.    Each form of exercise is beneficial.
3.    The important thing is to do something.  Whether it’s 30 minutes on the treadmill, or 5 minutes of stretching in between your favorite TV shows, as the saying goes… it’s all good!
4.    The whole point is to keep moving.  Any type of exercise, even housework, stretching, parking the car in a spot farther away, is exercise that burns calories.
5.    And of course more burned calories means faster weight loss.
6.    Now I am not saying that you should not do cardio exercise.  Don’t mistake me on that.  The goal for anyone even the most couchiest of couch potato’s is to start somewhere.

Note: Remember, before you change your lifestyle and start ANY exercise program ALWAYS consult a Doctor.
