Exercise: Tracking Your Progress

Exercise and activities are essential for improving our fitness. Setting and tracking our exercise goals is key to success. Setting a goal of 150-450 minutes of exercise per week is the recommended parameter.

Using an activity tracker device helps to motivate and monitor one’s exercise success.

There are many activity trackers to choose from. I personally like the fitbit products as it has many styles to choose from based on your preferences. The model that I use provides a sleep and heart rate monitor – I believe it leads to a more accurate assessment of daily caloric expenditures, as well as insuring that I get the recommended amount of sleep per night!
