May is a good month to get moving, and not just because it’s when spring hits full stride. May is also National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. At Life Fitness, we consider it our job to encourage people to move and be active, so May is the perfect month for us to spread our message and the message of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition. 

Do you meet suggested physical activity guidelines?

  • 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate aerobic activity (brisk walking, swimming, dancing, etc.) each week OR 1 hour and 15 minutes of vigorous activity (biking, running, jumping rope, etc.) each week.
  • 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity (weight lifting, exercise bands, etc.) each week.

One of the biggest trends for 2016 in health and fitness is small group, or semi-private training. With small group training the workouts can be modified to fit the needs of each individual, yet still have the energy and enthusiasm that is included with a group. Whether you’re training in a small studio, or a larger facility, it takes minimal space, and can always be adapted to the equipment available.
