What is really recommended?? pt1

I am frequently asked how much activity is needed for both adults and children.

Here is the info put out my the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) Which breaks it down to a minimum approximately 21 minutes per day 7 days per week.  That’s not hard right?  Many people find it hard to actually find 20 minutes in a day….especially moms!  But it can be broken down into 10 min segments…which many moms find very helpful, and will then do more than 2 -10 minute segments in a day.

All my classes are 60 minutes long, with healthy cardiovascular, strength training and flexibility components.  2 classes per week will give you 120 min towards your minimum goal of 150 minutes!  Bringing your older children along will also give them a start on their minimum activity, and the little ones give you the added resistance, and see from a young age that fitness and activity are important to your family!
