ObstacleFit's dynamic fitness system is designed in a way that any individual at any age or fitness level can take part in as little as a 6 minute intense routine to as much as 60 minutes a day every day of the week. Although it is never recommended to overdue workouts, ObstacleFit however can change dynamically and no two workouts would have to be the same or stress on a single body part. If the body is constantly guessing then ObstacleFit would work once a day, 7 days a week. It is recommended that 150 minutes a week of vigorous intensity physical activity to reduce risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, blood cholesterol, obesity and stress. ObstacleFit is not only intense but also fun so staying consistent isn't a problem.
Here are some statistics about Canadian health from the Canadian Heart And Stroke Foundation;
Fifteen percent of adults (17% of men and 14% of women), accumulate the recommended 150 minutes per week of moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity (Colley et al, 2011).
Among Canadian women ages 12 and over, 52.5% are physically inactive (PHAC, 2009).
Among Canadian men ages 12 and over, 46.5% are physically inactive (PHAC, 2009).
Only 13% of Canadians between the ages of 60 and 79 report meeting the weekly physical activity recommendations; the lowest of any group (Colley et al, 2011).
Children and physical activity
82% of Canadian teenagers may not be active enough to meet international guidelines for optimal growth and development (Craig & Cameron, 2004).
Girls are less active than boys with only 9% of boys and 4% of girls meeting Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines (Colley et al, 2011).
83% of children and youth from families earning incomes of at least $100,000 per year participated in sport compared to 66% from families earning less than $50,000 per year (Active Healthy Kids Canada, 2011).
Twenty two percent of Canadian children receive physical education at school daily, 44% receive physical education at school 1-2 days per week, 25% on 3-4 days of the week, and the remaining 9% reportedly receive no physical education at school (Active Healthy Kids Canada, 2011).
Physical education classes averaging 18 or more minutes a day can more than double the odds that an overweight or obese child becomes and remains physically active (McKenzie et al, 1995).
