In today’s fast-paced world, maintaining physical fitness is more crucial than ever. With the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy to neglect our health and well-being. However, prioritizing exercise is essential for overall health, longevity, and quality of life. But how much exercise is enough to stay fit?

According to guidelines provided by reputable health organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the recommended amount of exercise varies based on individual factors such as age, fitness level, health status, and goals. However, there are general principles that can guide us on our fitness journey. 

1. Aerobic Exercise

Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity per week. This can include activities such as brisk walking, jogging, swimming, cycling, or participating in aerobic classes. At Fly High, we offer invigorating options like Group Cycle and Cardio Kickboxing to elevate your heart rate and improve cardiovascular health. 

2. Strength Training In addition to aerobic exercise, incorporate muscle-strengthening activities on two or more days per week. Strength training is essential for building muscle mass, increasing strength, and improving overall body composition. Join us for Crossfit, Circuit Training, or Olympic Weightlifting classes to challenge your body and achieve remarkable results.

3. Flexibility and Balance Exercises

Don’t forget to include flexibility and balance exercises in your routine, especially as you age. Activities like yoga, arial yoga, and pilates focus on stretching, core stability, and mindful movement, promoting harmony between body and mind. 

4. Gradual Progression

It’s essential to gradually increase the duration, intensity, and frequency of exercise to continue challenging your body and making fitness gains while avoiding overuse injuries. Our expert trainers at Fly High can guide you through personalized training programs and powerbuilding workouts to help you climb the fitness ladder safely and effectively. 

5. Listening to Your Body

Pay close attention to your body’s signals and honor your limits. Rest and recovery are just as important as exercise itself. Take advantage of our general gym usage and deep stretching sessions to unwind, rejuvenate, and maintain a balanced approach to fitness.

Les Mills Core focuses on strengthening core muscles, balance, and lower back. It’s similar to Pilates but more advanced. The class is designed to improve balance and stability, and the fast-paced music challenges concentration.
