Too busy to exercise? *Every minute you exercise in a day counts towards increasing your overall health. Yes, every minute counts! Intermittent exercise can be just as effective as doing it all at once. It all adds up.
One Minute Challenge: Stand up right now and march in place for one minute with high knees. It’ll get your blood pumping and increase your your energy!
Get outside for a walk when you can and see the new colors forming around you. Join a spring or summer league, go to the driving range and hit some golf balls, or go for a bike ride. Have fun with it. Your heart will thank you! Notice, I didn’t even once mention the gym. You don’t need to workout in a gym to be fit and healthy (from the mouth of a trainer).
