For the few exercise is a normal part of their lives, but for
most of us it is a dreadful experience.

But through exercise we can accomplish total rejuvenation
of body and mind.

It is recommended that we should exercise at least 30 minutes
daily for general fitness.

Of course these 30 minutes do not not have to be all at a time.
We can split them into 10 minute steps, which will add to
the same result at the end.

It is a proven fact that lifestyle activities are as effective as
gym based routines as far as our general fitness is concerned.
They are also more enjoyable and easier to accommodate
and follow.
