Top 10 Best Exercises to Keep You Healthy and Fit

Top 10 Best Exercises to Keep You Healthy and Fit | Physical Exercise | Scoop.it

If you’re not an athlete or serious exerciser — and want to work out for your health or to fit in your clothes better — the gym scene can be intimidating. Just having to walk by treadmills, stationary bikes, and weight machines can be enough to make you head straight back home to the couch. However, it’s not necessary to spend four hours in the gym every day to feel and see a marked improvement to your overall health. What is necessary, however, is to make sure that you are maximizing your time — even if is far less than four hours per day.

 

The focus of this article is exercise — the 10 favorite, most effective ones to reach your goals. Obviously, any exercise program depends on the underlying health status of the participant. Be certain that your health is appropriate for exercise prior to attempting a new program.
