Well, first you must determine your goals. Exactly what do you want to achieve and how quickly you want to get there. Once these questions are answered you may customize an exercise schedule. Exercise length and frequency is crucial to your success. For instance, if you have a significant amount of weight to lose in a short amount of time you will exercise frequently, perhaps a minimum of 4-6 times a week for 30 minutes to a hour at an intense level to burn more calories. An exercise program such as P90X, Chair-A-Cise Turbo, Insanity or kickboxing is perfect.
However, if you want to lose weight gradually over a longer period you may choose to exercise 3 days a week for about 30 minutes at a low to moderate intense pace. Exercises such as walking, tennis, tai chi and Chair-A-Cise (beginners version) are great for producing long term results. Regardless of your goals its important to choose an exercise program which is obtainable and safe for you. Additionally, it’s always wise to check with your physician before beginning an exercise program designed for weight loss.
