The type of exercise you do all depends on YOU. What you like to do, what you don’t like doing, where you train and whether or not to buy equipment for home are all things you need to consider.
If you choose something that you don’t like to do, you aren’t going to keep doing it for a long period of time. Give it some thought – if you don’t like jogging, you aren’t going to get up at 6AM and go running.
The best training you can do is the training you enjoy and will continue to do!
Walking is great exercise, as it suits all levels of fitness. Anyone can start a walking program at any time, it’s normally the intensity and duration that differs. Walking is also a social exercise, as it isn’t difficult to find a training partner to chat with while you exercise. Walking with a partner will also make time go by faster.
No matter what exercise you choose, you should start at a low level of intensity and build it up over a period of weeks, which is essential to the
longevity of your exercise program. If you start off too hard, you could end up with an injury which will require time off to get over.
If you are really in bad shape, you should start off by walking for 10 minutes each day. Then, increase it by 5 minutes every 2 weeks. To make things more interesting, you should try walking a different course every few days. You can also roster a different friend to walk with you each day of the week to make in more interesting (and to stay up to date with all the gossip).
