Weight Loss Tip: How a Daily Routine of 10-minute Exercise Benefit Your Body [VIDEO]
Chelsea Streifeneder, a New York businesswoman, lost 19.4 pounds in only 8 weeks. Streifeneder took part in the 10-minute exercise daily routine of the Fit in 10 program of the Prevention.
Streifeneder opened her Pilates studio six years ago. She was excited to bring out the best for her clients to achieve the body they have always wanted. But her desire to help others prevented her from taking care of herself and the body she has always taken cared of, the Women's Health Magazine reports.
Since Streifeneder was a busy woman, she needed a plan to regain back her old self and figure that is quick and flexible. She heard of Prevention's 10-minute exercise program called Fit in 10: Total-Body Transformation . She said she then opted to go for it since it would only take 10 minutes of her time in a day.
The program is headed by a certified personal trainer, Larysa DiDio.
The program includes fat-burning kickstart exercises, supercharging the baby steps of the daily routine into more intense workouts and a training plan weeks after. According to Streifeneder, it worked out well for her and her busy schedule.
A research at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, reported findings involving 464 women who were not inclined to exercise. The group took part in the study and for six months, the women walked an average of 72 minutes a week at a pace of two to three mph, which is roughly an average of 10 minutes of walk a day. Test results reveal improved heart strength and general fitness, the Oprah reports.
According to lead author, Doctor Tim Church, walking and doing exercise on a 10-minute daily routine could reap great gains.
Although health experts urge 30-60 minutes of exercise daily to see results of a steady weight and fat-burning indications, the research from Louisiana points out that it's okay to take time in getting ready for the adjustment of a much longer workout routine. Doing 10 minutes of exercise a day may be such a small amount of time but it's better than being sedentary, Dr. Church says.
