How to Structure your Exercise Program
Structuring your weekly exercise regime can be a challenge. However, it is important to remember that it is all about balance, routine and rhythm.
I recommend including a variety of high and low-intensity workouts into your week for optimal health and wellness.
Examples of High-Intensity Interval Training Workouts:
- Dynamic Fitness Classes
Examples of Low-Intensity Interval Training Workouts:
- Stretching Routine
It is important to note that low-intensity exercises might also give you a moderate to high-intensity workout if they are done at a faster and more vigorous pace.
Low-intensity workout your heart rate will be around 78 - 97.
High-Intensity Workout your heart rate will be around 70- to 85.

Monday - 7km run
Tuesday - Pilates Class / Boxing Class
Wednesday - 4 km Light Run
Thursday - Pilates Class / Dynamic Fitness Class
Friday - Swimming
Saturday - Hip Hop Yoga

Remember - A few minutes of mindfulness each day, in addition to morning stretches.
