Mix up your exercise routine! December 21 2014
Whether you plan to exercise to lose or maintain weight, improve health or physical fitness it's important to choose something you can do daily and or weekly.
The health, fitness and weight management advantages of exercise all depend on you being physically active regularly and for the long term. Don't be afraid to mix it up a bit, doing the same thing day in day out can get boring.
There are 4 basic categories of exercise... Endurance, strength, balance, and flexibility.
