Are you wondering what types of exercises you should be doing? Determining what your level of fitness is can be an important part of designing an exercise schedule that you can stick to. Choosing something too hard can deter you from wanting to exercise. On the other hand, feeling like you’re not getting the results you want because your exercises are not intense enough can be frustrating as well.
Making sure you know what level of fitness you are at can help benefit your progress as you continue on your health and fitness journey. A proper workout regimen that is catered to your needs is the best way to keep you active and engaged for the short and long term.
