What Are Some Tips For Setting Fitness Goals For Weight Loss And Healthy Living?

Question: What are some tips for setting fitness goals for weight loss and healthy living?

Answer: Well you want to think about the smart system for setting goals and that is you want to be specific, you want to have measurable goals, you want them to be action oriented, realistic for you and have some time focus. And if you're focusing on just healthy living then you want to focus on 30 minutes of exercise most days if not all days of the week.

And for folks who are working on the weight loss area, you want to try to increase your minutes of exercise from say, 30 to start and bring it up to 45 or 60 minutes, four to five times a week or more if you need for weight maintenance or weight loss.
