How Much Should I Workout?

I don't have time to workout. I'm too busy to workout.

NO, NO, NO!

Please don't use an excuse. If you make time to do other things in your life you can make time to workout and stay healthy. Health is wealth and should be a top priority in your life. I'm not saying you have to be in the gym everyday and workout for 3 hours, but there is always a happy medium.

What is the proper amount of healthy activity? It is recommended to get at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity per week to achieve health benefits, maintain weight and prevent weight gain.

Those who are overweight or obese it is recommended to get 250 minutes of moderate intensity each week.

Moderate intensity is where you are out of breath, but can still hold a conversation while working out.

It is just a short 15-20 minutes daily activity to keep you active. Everyone has at least 15-20 minutes to get in some healthy activity in order to live and maintain. Now, remember just because you add in a daily 15-20 minute excessive doesn't mean you can eat fast food daily. A healthy lifestyle is about activity as well as what you put into your body.

Now, every body is a different shape and size, but with these guidelines it will help to fit in some physical activity to help you get back on the right track.

Always remember when you are making that "I can't" excuse, no one is too busy to live longer!
