Fitness Question of the Week.....

Hey everyone!

Sorry I haven't blogged in a bit. Just been a little crazy (no big surprise there lol). I had posted recently on Facebook and Twitter asking for you guys to send me some fitness questions and I would answer them here on my blog. I got a lot of great questions and I pick the one I did mostly because it's a question I'm asked a lot. So, thanks James for the great question!

Q: How much time on average, do you dedicate to cardio per day?

In my opinion this can usually vary according to the person. If you aren't normally an active person and have decided that you are ready to get up and start a training regiment then you would want to start slow. Even if you are just able to get on a treadmill or any cardio equipment for 15 minutes is a great start!

If you are a gym-goer and already have a training regiment I wouldn't really go past 30-45 minutes. Unless you are working on endurance for a marathon or tri-athon there isn't really a reason for an hour of cardio per day. There is so much more to do out there in the world! And if you're on cardio equipment that long why not try going for a hike or snow shoeing if you live in the tundra like me lol! It's so much more fun then starting blankly at a TV screen or other gym-goers. lol.

I hope this helps everyone and you James : )

Please keep the questions coming!
