Exercise + Fitness

Exercise and fitness is so important when it comes to having a well-balanced, and healthy lifestyle.

It’s medically proven that people who do regular physical activity have:

  • up to a 35% lower risk of coronary heart disease and stroke
  • up to a 50% lower risk of type 2 diabetes
  • up to a 50% lower risk of colon cancer
  • up to a 20% lower risk of breast cancer
  • a 30% lower risk of early death
  • up to an 83% lower risk of osteoarthritis
  • up to a 68% lower risk of hip fracture
  • a 30% lower risk of falls (among older adults)
  • up to a 30% lower risk of depression
  • up to a 30% lower risk of dementia

My personal routine includes weight training four days a week with cardio or low intensity exercises on my off days. I like doing cardio in the mornings on an empty stomach, and my weight training in the evening. I find it’s much easier to break it up into two sessions, and I find I have more energy for my weight lifting in the later part of the day. If I’m trying to shred or lower my body fat in a short amount of time, I incorporate cardio on the weekends too.

I rest 60 seconds only between exercises. This keeps my workouts moving along a little more intense.

I spend no more than an hour in the gym either doing cardio or lifting weights in one session. No more. Overtraining does not give you results any faster!
