I recommend daily moderate physical exercise, e.g. 90 minutes of walking per day.
All of the following aspects are included in getting fit:
- Aerobic exercise
- Speed – important more for sports people
However, every type of sport exercises all of these aspects, just weighted differently. A combination of different sports is the most effective way to incorporate each of these aspects.
For those who are ill, it is a longer road to get exercising and the route often goes via:
- passive types of physiotherapy e.g. heat/cold, water, massage, passive movement.
- active types of physiotherapy e.g. gym work accompanied by physios.
- rehabilitative sport.
- physical exercise, sports.
The route may be long, but it’s worth it – to stop is to die!
