Treat it right!
Studies show that 150 minutes of moderate activity per week is all you need to make a positive difference. 30 minutes a day, five days a week. Do the math: we're talking just a measly 2% of your day! I bet many of you spend more than that surfing channels and the web(don't lie--I'm guilty of this as well and my ass can back me up on that one).
Research has proven that a prolonged sedentary lifestyle causes long term harm to muscles, increased risk of heart disease and other life-threatening illnesses. Yet, the same cannot be said for the person who stands up and puts one foot in front of the other! Remember, no matter how slow you go, you're still lapping the guy on the couch! Whether you get your sweat on in the gym, on the trails, or during commercials in the living room, the point is to get it done. At the end of the day, the only workout you will ever regret is the one you did not do.
