The best exercise for you, no matter what your age!

by , 10 April 2013

Many people realise the importance of fitness at school when they're lured into playing team sports. For some, the exercise bug bites hard, and many people continue hiking and running marathons well into their golden years. But don't despair if you're not a ‘fitness natural'. Here's how to develop the best fitness routine for you, to keep you active and motivated for years to come!

 
Anyone can start exercising to increase their fitness levels.
 
That’s why it’s surprising that there are now reports that ageing Americans are confusing their fitness trainers as “it’s difficult to design effective workout routines for people with such a wide range of abilities,” says The Business Report.
 
“If they can wiggle their toes, they can exercise,” the article continues.
 
It’s not difficult at all.
 
It’s just about finding the specific exercise that meets your individual fitness and health needs.
 
You probably discovered the exercise you love - and hate -  at an early age, thanks to school team sports!
 
That’s why About.Pediatrics says the best exercise your child is whichever one he or she will stay interested in, whether it’s running, golf or gymnastics. 
 
As middle age hits though, it’s easy to get side-tracked by the stresses of life and brush aside your previous love of fitness, says HowToBeFit.
 
But you shouldn’t let this happen.
 
Because it’s easy to incorporate the bare minimum of exercise into your daily routine to keep healthy.
 
Start your fitness programme today with a 30 minute walk!
 
It takes just 30 minutes of exercise  a day to get your heart pumping, feel better about yourself for losing weight, you’ll also be protecting your heart from heart disease and cutting your risk of cancer in half, says FSP Health.
 
Walking’s a cheap, easy way to start.
 
And if you stick at it for just three weeks, fitness will soon become a habit.
 
That’ll make it easier to stay focused on short-term goals like improving your mood and energy levels and reducing stress, says HelpGuide.
 
Stuck in a wheelchair? That’s no excuse not to get fit!
 
If you’re wheelchair-bound, movement matters even more, explains HelpGuide.
 
Fitness is still entirely achievable through strength training with weights and swimming.
 
What are you waiting for? Start today and you’ll be grateful you did when you notice you have more energy at the end of the day!
