Time to get active

If you are looking to start some regular activity for the first time or add something new to your current exercise program, this low intensity routine might be just what you need. Created by our fitness experts, these activities are an easy way to raise your heart rate and start burning those kilojoules. Best of all you can do them in front of the TV, in the park, the backyard or wherever else you choose.

 

If you are new to exercise, try completing the whole routine 1-2 times a week. As you get more comfortable, and your fitness improves, you could challenge yourself a little more by doing one or a combination of the following:

  • Completing the routine more often
  • Increasing the time spent on each activity
  • Increasing the intensity of each/some activities

 

If you are looking to add this routine to your regular exercise, why not stop during your regular walk and run through each of the exercises 1-2 times before taking off to finish the rest of your walk. Remember to progress your exercise gradually but regularly to ensure ongoing improvements.

 

Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) Emma Briskey recommends to always seek medical advice before starting a new exercise program, particularly if it has been a while since you were last active. If you have a medical condition you are strongly advised to talk with your GP and/or an AEP prior to starting exercise, especially if you would like to increase your exercise intensity. You can find an Accredited Exercise Physiologist by visiting www.essa.org.au.
