Exercise and its importance in maintaining your health

Oct 7, 2021

Exercise helps with the prevention of the development of health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, heart and lung conditions.  Exercise helps with improving your mood and reduces the development of musculoskeletal injuries.

It is recommended by the American college of sport medicine that adults should get 150 minutes moderate intensity and/or 75 minute
high intensity of aerobic exercise and 2x 20 minute strengthening sessions a week – this involves targeting all the main muscle group of
the body (ACSM).

There are some videos below to help guide you on where to start.  If you have any injuries or any pre-existing medical conditions it is
important that you consult your GP or Physiotherapist before embarking on a new exercise regime.
