FITNESS – Fitting exercise into your routine is essential to living a healthy lifestyle.
SUGARMEDOWN is here to support you on the journey to fitness as part of your daily routine.
Why Exercise Matters
Exercise plays a key role in your overall health. Exercise will help to maintain your blood glucose levels within a healthy range.
Exercise – Has it been a while? Before you begin remember
- Drink plenty of water during your workout.
- Wear comfortable clothing, shoes, and socks.
SUGARMEDOWN recommend doing aerobic exercise 30 minutes a day at least 5 days a week to help you lose weight and keep your blood sugar levels level. This is in addition to your normal activity. An example of aerobic exercise that’s easy (and free!) is walking very fast up a hill.
You can also do another cardio activity you enjoy, such as playing tennis or attending a group exercise class.
Choose exercises you’ll enjoy so you stick with them. Every day we upload a new video workout for you to try at home. Let us know which ones you like!
Strengthen Your Muscles
Lifting weights not only helps build muscle, it can help with weight loss. Most of the super slim and fit instructors have strong toned muscles. This helps them burn calories and blood sugar faster when they work out.
Stretch to Your Heart’s Content
As part of a well-rounded exercise routine you should try to do yoga or another type of stretching.
Make Fitness Fun
Regular exercise will help you control blood sugar levels as well as lose weight. Do activities you enjoy, and just keep moving.
