Benefits of exercise

Physical exercise is indispensable for a healthy lifestyle. Why exercise? There are so many good reasons for it.

Exercising for 60 minutes a day

Specialists advise that children and youth should accumulate at least 60 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity every day. This goal is very achievable because simple activities such as stair climbing and brisk walking already serve the purpose. You will find staircase indexes at some MTR stations which aim to encourage people to take the stairs instead of escalators. Based on your physical condition and preference, you can choose which exercises are suitable for you.

Preparing for exercise

To get the most out of exercise, you should act according to your own physical ability. You may opt for an analysis on measuring intensity of physical activity before choosing your types of exercise. Some guidelines on preparing for exercise will also help you avoid sports injuries.
