How often should I exercise?

I get asked this question on a weekly basis… How often should I exercise?

There are so many things to consider when answering this question.

  1. What is the goal of the individual?
  2. How much time can the individual realistically and consistently allocate to training?
  3. Age is a huge factor to consider when asking how often should one exercise.

And so on…

The government guidelines recommend that people exercise for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity per week. It is also suggested that at least 2 days of resistance training should be incorporated to support muscle preservation and reduction of bone disease.

How often should I exercise?

Remember though… this is just a guideline and every case is personal to that individuals goals and needs.

We must take into consideration diet especially when the goal is to reduce body fat/weight.

Adhering to the governments exercise suggestions maybe okay for some…

But for others, a calorie controlled diet and strict training regime may be necessary.

If you need help with this, drop me a message or email and we can set up a call.

Have a lovely Christmas.
