Fitness can be categorized as anything you do physically that will promote better health. These activities can be classified as basically anything that gets you up and moving around for a time and intensity to receive health benefits. The Winnipeg Fitness section of this website will guide you towards your fitness goals.
It is proven that moderate activity for at least 20-30min/day can have a profound effect on blood pressure and reducing the chances of heart attacks and strokes. This activity does not have to be strenuous as long as you get your heart into the target heart rate zone.
A persons fitness goals must be taken into account when they are considering one of the many fitness programs that are out there. If your goal is to just get enough activity to provide protection against heart attacks or strokes, then the intensity can be low such as walking. But if a person want to lose alot of weight quickly, then they must choose something in nature with a higher intensity, frequency, and duration.
There are many Winnipeg Fitness Trainers to choose from but make sure you choose one that is qualified for the job. This is very important because if you do not get someone who is qualified, then you may not (a)see results or (b) even worse get injured. I cannot count the times I have seen bad information given out in this industry. On a daily basis I see people teaching downright dangerous exercise techniques. Yes, it is important to do your homework when looking for an instructor. Check out my article on how to chose a qualified fitness instructor.
It is important to get a fitness assessment done before you start doing regular exercise. This is very important for figuring out what kind of exercise program to start with. Their are multiple factors that must be addressed such as age, injury history, medical history, current fitness levels, and past fitness experience. Failure to find out this information is downright dangerous.
I am often asked by clients “what are the best fitness tips?” Well, I’m sorry to say but there are not any “best fitness tips.” Although some will be better than others there definitely is no magic bullet when it comes to fitness. Instead, a person should be following the prescribed guidelines for achieving their fitness goals. The best fitness tip I can give is to be consistent!
