An active lifestyle is a choice. It’s choosing to be healthy and active every day versus a lifestyle of sedentary entertainment. My rule of thumb is this: if you are looking for fitness and physique change…you need true results-driven and thoughtfully-programmed workouts 5-6 days a week. And for “maintenance,” about 3-5 days a week. Yes, it is certainly wonderful that you walk you dog for 20 minutes every day, but that is not going to change your fitness or physique. We love to see our clients reach a fitness level that helps them enjoy their active lifestyle even more. Being truly fit allows you to embark on any hiking, paddling, and keeping up with young ones as much as your heart desires. And THAT is what health and fitness is about! Those narrow, specific goals are there for fun and to challenge you further.
Just remember–active rest days should be a fun way to rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit!
