Podcast 206 – How Much Should You Be Exercising?


senior fitness with meredith

The amount that one should exercise is a common question we receive. Knowing how much you should exercise during a week or month can be the difference between a healthy lifestyle or one that effects other areas of your life like mood, motivation and overall wellness.

However, the answer to this question is different for everyone and knowing how to find your “sweet spot” for exercising is the key to unlocking a long lasting healthy lifestyle.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

1). Some of Meredith’s personal experiences in working with clients and their take on how much exercise they think they need on a regular basis.

2). How we usually like to keep our exercising and workouts very regimented in time and in routines and how that can be effective as you age.

3). The official exercise recommendation from the CDC (Centers For Disease Control)

4). The importance of taking rest days in your workout schedule.

5). How staying active and doing things like gardening, wood working or golfing can also count as exercise and how that plays an important part in an active lifestyle.


We hope this episode provides a good framework as you think about what is the best schedule for you and how much you should be exercising per week or month. Over exercising can lead to exhaustion and injury. In the same light, under exercising can lead to health issues down the road and a lack of motivation. Making sure you find the right balance will help you live a healthy life and keep you motivated to stay on track.
