When it comes to exercise, at FIT we advocate exercising 2-5 times a week (around 45-60 minutes each time). This is to be consistent in your routine and to make progress.
Exercise should be enjoyed not endured. The key is finding something you like, getting your heart rate up a couple times a week, moving and working your muscles.
Whilst exercising supports good health too much can suppress a person’s immune function, deplete essential nutrients and disrupt hormonal balance. This is why we always harp on about “Rest and Recovery” at sessions, because the more you exercise, the more recovery you need.
Our hope is that you discover your body’s abilities, make the most of them and feel happier and healthier. Which is why we suggest experimenting with 2-5 exercise sessions a week. This way you can reflect and see if you’ve taken the ‘exercise more’ advice to another level and actually need to scale it back a little to find YOUR happy balance for long-term wellness.
