How do you get started and what's a good exercise regimen?

Individuals should consult with their physician about safe exercise levels for their current health situation. Then, chose an exercise you enjoy that works with your lifestyle, and one that involves large muscle groups such as the legs and arms. Experts recommend a combination of aerobic and strength-training activities for maximum benefit.


Start off exercising a minimum of three days a week, working up to five to seven days a week. Try to exercise at least 30 minutes per day, and intensify the workout as you progress.
