Aerobic Exercise - FAQ

What is aerobic exercise?

The word aerobic literally means "with oxygen" or "in the presence of oxygen." Aerobic exercise is any activity that rhythmically uses large muscle groups. Aerobic activity increases the heart, lungs and cardiovascular system's ability to deliver oxygen more quickly and efficiently to the body. As the heart muscle becomes stronger and more efficient, a larger amount of blood can be pumped with each stroke thereby decreasing the number of strokes required for oxygen transport. An aerobically fit individual can produce more work for a longer period of time and recover faster.

I have never exercised before. Where do I begin?

Start slow. Walking is the best way to begin a program. Start with a stroll for a mile or so and gradually increase the distance. when you acheived a comfotable distance then increase the speed to a comfortable stride. Eventually, you might want to try another activity such as jogging, running or even aerobic or step classes. The best aerobic program is the one you enjoy the most because that's the one that you'll do the most.
