New Year, New Fitness Plans?

Call it convenient if you like, but the World Health Organization recently issued an update to its longstanding physical activity guidelines.  With many of us considering new approaches to our daily regimen at the start of a new year, these guidelines may come as good news.

The revised message says that all activity counts toward your daily exercise expenditure.  Cast aside those older ideas where you traveled to a workout center and then undertook a 45-60 minute workout.  That, in and of itself, is one reason persons let slip their exercise plans — the time it took.  Now whether it is a 10-minute walk to get from behind your desk or a spontaneous dance session alone in your office, these all count toward your daily minimum.  Sure there is a bit more to it than that, but it is within your reach.

This short page includes a couple of videos worth taking a quick glance.  Our hope is this will be enough to propel you forward.  If you’d prefer to read from the World Health Organization’s website, this page will provide a more thorough explanation.

Your CRS fitness professionals lean more on the American College of Sports Medicine for the latest information and guidelines related to physical activity and exercise.  Their site is chocked full of items of interest to the general public.  The highlighted link provides a suggested starting point for those who want to know more.
