Yes, you can make time for exercise
04/26/2012
With all of our schedules, meetings, soccer practices and endless errands, squeezing in the exercise we know we should be doing may seem like pie in the sky. Nearly two-thirds of Americans aren’t getting in 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week recommended by the American College of Sports Medicine. But there are ways to help you succeed in achieving this goal.

Got 30 minutes, five days a week? Edward Health & Fitness can help you meet the recommended 150 minutes of exercise. You can get in a complete workout in 30 minutes by attending our Express classes. We offer more than 40 Express classes a week. Here are a few more tips to help you get in your weekly exercise:

  • Plan to exercise period (schedule it in your planner, iPhone, etc.)
  • Pack your exercise clothes the night before
  • Choose an exercise buddy or group of friends
  • Commit to a class
  • Use technology (watch one of our personal TVs or bring in your Nook)
  • Download a fitness tracking app


  • Remember, every little bit counts! Keeping track of workouts as a monthly summary might just help you stay the course.
